Some Muslims have launched unique way to win hearts and minds of people of other community.
A journalist, who was earlier based in Okhla, shared this message: “Promote and participate “Visit My Home, Be My Guest” campaign. It is a simple campaign directed to change the preconceived notions and opinions that we hold about people of other community, class, caste, religion, sexual orientation, language, region etc.
“It is easy to spread hatred in the absence of direct contact with each other. The objective is simple and direct, people must go to each other’s house eat and drink tea, just even water and break the socially constructed barriers.
“We are well aware that this campaign cannot transform society into a just and equal society . This is only an experiment, a small beginning and a hope that especially the new generation will rise above the hatred and join hands for peace and love.
“We call upon you to join this campaign.
Visit My Home, Be My Guest, Weaving Lives Together.
