"My name is Khan and I am not a terrorist" was famously said by the lead actor in an Indian movie, in which he had a dream to meet the US President to tell him these words.
Names or Surnames have created a lot of problems for certain ethnic groups over the period of past decade. However, it is really tough to agree with or justify any reason behind this. A name is just a word with which a person is known, and that name was chosen by someone else for her/him. So, how can we judge someone just on the basis of that?
What happened with this girl named Isis is sad.
Her name resembles that of the terror group ISIS, and this proved too much for Facebook.
The girl then launched a campaign named #ILookLikeAnEngineer for people to support her.
Tremendous support of people from all over the world was received.
50,000 people signed a petition which said that media should stop associating the name Isis with any terror group.
Seems like ISIS makes its presence felt even without doing anything. At least here it proves well.
