Following the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) row, the nation has been debating over ‘anti-nationalism’ and freedom of speech. Recently, it found its way into parliament where politicians left no stone unturned to put forward their respective opinions.

As expected, social media users also aired their socio-political views but, some decided to have fun while doing so.

On February 26, some Facebook users came up with ‘Anti-Nationalism Nominations’ game.

It is similar to the Ice Bucket Challenge that went viral in July 2014.

Here’s the how the game goes: You have to first announce your status as ‘anti-national’ and then nominate five other friends who you believe are fellow ‘anti-nationals’.

The nominated friends will have to respond in a day and then nominate other five friends and the chain goes on.

If the nominated friend fail to respond, he or she has to bear the punishment, i.e., the ‘anti-nationals will come to you and sing revolutionary songs of freedom and throw roses’ at the defaulter.

 

Not so surprisingly, the game is going viral on Facebook. Many users, though sarcastically, are expressing their opinions through the game.
