Pakistanis `go green` in build-up to their I-Day
Islamabad: Pakistanis are changing their
display pictures on Twitter, Facebook and other social
networking websites to show their patriotism ahead of the
country`s Independence Day on August 14.
The "Sab Green Kar Do" campaign launched by a young
Lahore resident, Farhan Masood, has become a rage in the
virtual world as the country gear up to celebrate its 62nd
Independence Day. Pakistanis are "going green" to showcase
their love for their country.
Over a week ago, Masood started urging his friends on
Twitter and Facebook to turn their avatars "green", the
national colour of Pakistan, in the build-up to August 14. He
even offered to make "go-green" avatars with the Pakistan
"I had noticed a similar display of national pride
happening during the run-up to the T20 Final game. The idea is
to turn the avatar panels green as we approach August 14.
Hence, Sab Green Kar Do!" wrote Adil Najam, editor-founder of
a Pakistani e-zine.
"We tend to use a lot of `green` anyhow. Invariably, we
end up using green even more than usual in August. As someone
who works on environmental issues, my allegiance to green is
even broader than just that!" he wrote.
