Story Of Muslim boy Will Make You Cry
بھارتی مسلمان کی ایسی کہانی جس نے دنیا کو جھنجوڑ دیا خود امیتابھ بچن بھی رو پڑے
Amid heart-breaking stories of victims and their loss from Lahore, here is one story from the same country that gives some hope.
Karachi resident and Facebook user Wahid Khan celebrated Holi with his friends in the city. On his way back home, doused in different colours, he decided to take the bus. Though he was warned against taking public transport because he was covered in Holi colours, Khan insisted on taking the bus because he wanted to conduct a social experiment and see how people react to his ‘look’ and use the public space to celebrate diversity.
Unsurprisingly, someone commented and the illuminating conversation that followed is not only an example of the stereotypes that exist, but also of the will to change, and a reflection of at least a part of the young Pakistani Muslim youth.
