The whole world is hurt and wounded because of the brutality in Palestine. While several Muslim countries are raising their voice on official forums, locals are showing immense support for the oppressed. However, it is important to mention that Palestine has always been under the terrifying influence and brutality of Israel. For many years, the innocent Palestinians cried for help but to no success. Imagine a country without an army and economic control that exists on the same map of the world as our country does. All thanks to the digital media enabling people to see beyond what is shown on a news segment. While we show our continuous support to the people of Palestine, is there something that we can do to help them? The answer is yes! If you are willing to take any action to help Palestine from Pakistan, here are the 5 things we can do to help Palestine from our very own country.
5 Things To Help The People Of Palestine
Listen and identify their problems
Social media platforms have a lot of videos of Palestinians crying for help. The most important thing that we can do is to listen and identify the core issues. This will not only help us set our direction right but also reduce the uncertainty. It is true that Palestinians need to have a voice from the outside. However, it is equally important to address the correct messages in the local public. As loyal supporters, we need to not only use our digital platforms for raising the voice but to also ensure it is heard.
Clarify the ‘fabricated’ facts
Some of the communities across the globe are fabricating facts to raise pressure against Palestine. If you find anyone around you taking actions based on false information, talk to them. Here, it is important to know that by hating or fighting, you can never promote peace. Sit with them for a cup of tea and talk about things in a light mood. Hear them out first. If you can do this, you will ultimately help Palestinian people by clearing their false image.
Create and publish to educate
Have you ever wondered why many poets and journalists faced hard times in history? It is because they used to write the truth that spread like wildfire across the state. Today, societies are way more educated and facilitated. You can write blogs and stories to spread a positive message for Palestine across multiple media. For those who have expertise in graphic manipulation, you can create visual stories and publish them. Remember, your most powerful weapon in today’s world is your voice for the truth. So, use it wisely.
Boycott Israel’s products
Pakistan is one of the many countries where Israel’s products are available. While many of us do not know which brands or products fall on the list, these companies are making billions of rupees. If we commit to boycott Israel’s products today, the story of Israel could be very different. You can also use your Twitter handle to start a trend for all Muslim countries to boycott such brands.
Money, clothes, or food, DONATE!
It goes without saying that Palestine is economically quite weak and oppressed by the Israeli government. While we continue to raise our voice in its support, we need to come forward with an open heart to offer as much donation as we can. Many local organizations are actively raising donations for Palestine. The list includes Pakistan Islamic Medical Association (PIMA), Baitussalam Welfare Trust (BWT), and Alkhidmat Foundation. If you have a good number of followers on your social profiles, you can also volunteer to collect donations of any kind.
We hope these 5 things to help Palestine from Pakistan can help us all take an action starting today! #SavePalestine
