#ProfileForPeace : Indian and Pakistani people find brilliant way to hit back hate-mongers
While some uneducated, miserable politicians and extremist organization in India and Pakistan are trying their best to brainwash, provoke people, and preach hate towards other religions and communities, people from both countries have found a way to express what they actually think and feel. India and Pakistan are exchanging messages of peace, love and harmony on social media. A campaign, #ProfileForPeace is attracting huge number of people to send out a clear message to hatemonger. The hashtag was first used by Indian writer, innovator, and an ad film maker, Ram Subramanian in his Facebook post in which he holds a piece of paper in front of his face that says,
I AM AN INDIAN
I AM FROM MUMBAI
I DON’T HATE PAKISTAN
I AM NOT ALONE
THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE LIKE ME!
It was instantly picked up by other people and IT spread to Pakistan. From Pakistan people responded with same tolerance. They are simply posting their pictures with either piece of paper or edited image that repeats the same message. Thanks to social media that has given a neutral platform for people. Otherwise, mainstream media rarely report positive news like this one.
Clearly, it’s not the common people who are trying to create communal tension; it’s just corrupt politicians and some organizations.
In times of such distress and chaos, these people have found courage to nullify efforts of religious extremists working to achieve ugly political goals. HW members have also joined the campaign and hope other Himachal people to support it.
