#Polishedman campaign

In order to raise awareness about child abuse, several Pakistani celebrities have painted one of their finger nails to showcase their softer side.

Shaniera Akram, wife of Pakistani cricket legend Wasim Akram, turned to her social media to shed light on the Polished Man campaign and raised awareness about child abuse.

Sharing photos of some most prominent faces in Pakistan, Shaniera wrote: “Some of the toughest men Pakistan has ever produced are showing their softer side & colouring one nail to represent the millions of children who suffer every day at the hand of an adult. Our Pakistani heroes say ‘We WILL NOT tolerate child abuse in our country’.”

She further added, “#PolishedMan campaign has been around for years & now in 2020, due to the highest level of child violence to come out of Pakistan, celebrities & sporting stars join this international campaign to show their support for children suffering in silence from child abuse in Pakistan.”

Shaniera further encouraged other men to also join the cause about the rampant cases of child abuse.

“Talking about Child Abuse is better than not talking about Child Abuse! We need to infiltrate peoples homes in Pakistan with the necessary conversations around this topic. And if a man colouring his nail can spark a wave of awareness, then so be it! Man up, Colour your nail today”, she tweeted.

Celebrities such as Wasim Akram, Bilal Ashraf, Adnan Siddiqui, Shahzad Roy, Humayun Saeed, Mikaal Zulfiqar and others joined polished man campaign with their fingernails painted.
