A Blind-Folded Muslim Man Asked Mumbaikars For Free Hugs. How Do You Think People Reacted?


People and passers-by at Chowpatty, Mumbai were confused to see a blindfolded Muslim man standing with his arms wide open with a placard which read “I’m Muslim and I trust you. Do you trust me enough for a hug?”

Some of them walked by without so as giving him a second glance, some started silently, some were skeptical and some went ahead and gave him a hug and talked to him even. The man, Mazim Milla, said he did this as a social experiment to see people’s reaction and to abolish the stereotypes associated with the community.
