“Young blogger Mehreen Kasana thought of this online campaign to break the boilerplate notion that Pakistan is associated with. The campaign introduces itself as follows: “We’re here to tell the world that it is virtually impossible to stereotype a population of 190,291,129 est. people into one racist, demeaning, hurtful character. We’re diverse, we’re different, we’re humans just like you. Stop stereotyping. Stop the hate.” Families, students, office-mates, overseas Pakistanis and non-Pakistani foreigners spoke out, holding placards and signs saying, “When you tag, it hurts us.” Others said, “I am Pakistani and I refuse to be stereotyped.” “These stereotypes are discriminating and narrow,” says Kasana. “There is a lot more to an entire nation than bombs and explosions.”
