Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy is back with yet another project! A SOC Films initiative, WHITE IN THE FLAG will highlight important issues that affect minorities living in Pakistan, while attempting to create a discourse about the experience of being a minority in Pakistan.
Digital Platform: White In The Flag
Two-time Academy Award winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy proudly launches Pakistan’s first dedicated digital platform for minorities, “WHITE IN THE FLAG”.
Indeed! Embracing a digital mindset has become an essential & daily feature of how a civil society communicates, persuades, informs and advocates.
With “WHITE IN THE FLAG”, Chinoy aims to provide a platform in the form of an interactive website. It can be used as a major tool for students, activists and legislators on the issues confronting minority groups by exhibiting a variety of resources associated with religious minority groups in order to advance the relevant policy initiatives.
Minority Groups In The Spotlights
Isolation Of Minority Groups
Conversations related to minority groups in Pakistan happen in isolation. Chinoy believes that with the rapid changes happening around the state of human rights in Pakistan, it is essential to have a focused dialogue with all necessary facts.
This resource will record the history, present and future of the minority groups in Pakistan. It aims to help students, advocates, and the minority groups to use the content on the website to weigh, spread awareness and understand the history, present and future.
With White In The Flag, SOC Films will be seeking collaboration opportunities with independent bodies, education institutes, and organizations that are working for minority groups.
