Facebook users from both countries are using #ProfileForPeace, a movement that was started by Mumbai resident Ram Subramanian last October.

It's a beautiful act of solidarity, considering the fact that the bitter rivals will be facing each other in a T20 World Cup clash on Saturday, March 19.

While it may initially have left some people confused, the reactions to the act have been largely positive.
