So, here are the four ways in which April 3rd was celebrated:

  1. By Giving Away Gifts

The Christian community went and distributed gifts of gratitude to their Muslim neighbours. The day that was supposed to promote hatred, people rather promoted compassion and love. Gits were handed over, particularly to younger children telling them that they’re against promoting hate and recognize them as a part of their society.

  1. Forming A Human Chain To Protect Mosques

One of the tasks on the to-do list was to bomb a mosque. Little did the extremists know that several people will gather and form a human chain joining hand in hand to protect the sacred building.
About a hundred people formed a human chain around a mosque in Newcastle to show their resistance against any extremist and hateful activity. Outside London mosque, people distributed flowers among the Muslims who were there for prayers as a sign of peace.

  1. Counter Hashtag #LoveAMuslimDay

Thousands of people took to social media, expressing their appreciation and acceptability of the Muslim community as a part of their own. They sent messages of peace, love, and tolerance through this hashtag campaign that was quite meaningful and powerful.
