White in the Flag: Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy's New Initiative


Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy is an acclaimed filmmaker of Pakistan. She is also an activist and mostly famous for raising issues related to women’s inequality. This time she has come up with a new idea that is to give voice to the minorities of Pakistan and she has launched a website White in The Flag where minorities belonging to Pakistan can share their stories and engage in discussions. The website is illustrated with JInnah’s quote, "You are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place of worship in this state of Pakistan".
Minorities in Pakistan have faced many hardships and discrimination and this very digital platform can be a good source to spread awareness and to protect the rights of the minorities. It will also be useful to highlight the issues the minority communities are going through.
