Iraqi TikTok Star Om Fahad Fatally Shot Outside Her Home in Baghdad

Iraqi social media personality Om Fahad, also known as Ghufran Sawadi, tragically lost her life in Baghdad when she was attacked outside her home by an unidentified gunman on a motorcycle. The incident has sparked widespread outrage on social media and prompted an investigation by Iraq’s interior ministry.

Om Fahad gained popularity on TikTok for her dance videos, but she had encountered legal issues in recent years due to content deemed inappropriate by authorities. Last year, she was sentenced to six months in jail for posting videos that were considered to violate public morality.

Reports indicate that Fahad was embroiled in disputes with another Iraqi social media star, Dalia Naeem, who allegedly threatened to expose Fahad’s purported relationship with high-ranking Iraqi officials.

The Iraqi government has been cracking down on social media content deemed contrary to Iraqi morals and traditions. This crackdown led to the establishment of an interior ministry committee tasked with monitoring platforms like TikTok and YouTube for offensive material. Several TikTok personalities were detained as part of this campaign but were later released.
