KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians are encouraged to put aside their political differences and enter a "healing process" as part of the #SaySomethingNice campaign, mostly driven by social media platforms.
The campaign, introduced by entrepreneur Anas Zubedy, is to encourage kindness with one another, especially after the recent 13th General Election (GE13) campaigning period, that has somewhat divided the society.
"We've introduced this campaign two years back to commemorate the 17 days in between Merdeka Day and Hari Malaysia. It so happened GE13 happened this year, thus we are starting to build up the momentum of the campaign starting now before launching it on May 13th," Anas said to AstroAwani.com
He decided to build up the momentum as he saw politicians and their supporters exchanging hurtful words with those from a different political party during the campaigning period.
Anas is targeting the campaign to touch one million Malaysians through social media and on the ground activities and it involves a simple exercise of expressing kind words through blog posts, Twitter and posters.
