    Indians And Pakistanis Are Using The Hashtag #ProfileForPeace To Send Each Other Messages Of Love

    Not today, hate politics. Not today.

    Tired of the increasing hate politics between India and Pakistan, Mumbaikar Ram Subramanian started a beautiful campaign yesterday called #ProfileForPeace.

    Subramanian put up his photo holding up a note. It had the following caption:

    "This is the idea. Do join in if you believe in peace being the way forward. Write this message on a post it note, take a selfie and make it your profile picture #ProfileForPeace. No more artists being banned. This is my voice. This is our voice for our Mumbai, our India. Enough of hate politics. #SpeakUp"

    It didn't take long before other Indians started joining in.
