When it comes to President Trump, a lot of us are pretty much in agreement over how we feel about the guy. He’s not the biggest fan of Muslims (or people, in general) and the feelings seem to be pretty mutual. However, Trump’s proposed US travel ban has affected countless lives. It has separated many families, and those families are now fighting back – lekin pyaar se.
Instagram account, BannedGrandmas is fighting against the travel ban with a genius idea
People are using photos of them chilling with their dadis and nanis to highlight the importance of family.
And honestly, it’s really heartwarming
Not only does it highlight how much grandparents mean to these Muslims…
…it kinda also sheds light on how innocent people are being affected by the ban
You’re also left wondering – why are families being torn apart?
Dadis aur nanis ne kisi ka kya bigara hai?
Look at them, they’re so harmless and cute
What good could possibly come out of keeping families away from each other?
Kis ki dadi ya nani terrorist attack karne nikalti hain?
On a very serious note, the account, by posting such pictures, highlights how ridiculous the ban is to a certain extent
The need for security is understood. We live in dark times where a lot of unfortunate incidents keep happening on and off. However, to malign, ostracize and ban followers of an entire religion from one’s country seems a wee bit severe, nahi?
Some grandfathers are joining in on the protest, too
And the pictures are equally heartwarming
Here’s hoping these dadis, nanis and dadas can soon reunite with their families.
Because everyone needs their family to turn to.
What do you think about the US travel ban? Is this a good way to retaliate? Let us know in the comments below.
