2:01 pm 19 Jul, 2018


Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress just need a reason to take a dig at each other. Recently, the Modi party accused its rival Congress of being a pure ‘party of Muslims’ and Rahul Gandhi, who only speaks when his party is publicly bashed, responded with a statement that says, ‘he loves living beings’ and ‘I am Congress’. This entire conversation has in fact, led to a nation-wide movement called #TalkToAMuslim.

#TalkToAMuslim is the new social media movement on Twitter which encourages Indians to leave any personal or political rivalry aside and embrace their Muslim friends. It started after Rahul’s freedom of expression:



#TalkToAMuslim is so trending, that it has reached the top searches on social media. Now, many Bollywood celebrities are participating in this movement.



The campaign has reached all news channels, after kick storming nation-wide debate on whether it’s patronising or real face of Muslim sentiments.



Rahul Gandhi’s tweet might not have united the two parties, but it has surely united many celebs like Zainab Sikander, who have come forth with their support on Twitter.



Actress Swara Bhasker, best known for her recent masturbation scene in ‘Veere Di Wedding‘, showed Rahul her support. Prior to this, she applauded him when he spoke in favour of the ‘Sacred Games‘ controversy.



This time again, the ‘Raanjhanaa’ actress has asked citizens to end communal politics, after the Congress patron’s statement.



It doesn’t end here. Swara Bhaskar continued raising her voice in a series of tweets for #TalkToAMuslim movement:





#TalkToAMuslim has also found resonance among Muslim celebrities including Gauahar Khan, who spread the message via this placard message:



Even prominent actor Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub joined this new love-for-Muslims movement:



This topic is so raging on social media, that even commoners joined in the current movement. Have a look:








Swara Bhasker and other celebrities had previously raised their voice in the Kathua case and took part in protest marches for the same. We hope this time too, their voices reach the hearts of people.
