Every child deserves the right to feel safe and protected. But here we are in 2020 where more than 10 children a day in Pakistan are subjected to abuse and violence (and that’s only what is being reported). Too many lives are being taken at the hand of an adult and This needs to end. We need to break this subject wide open, hear our children’s cries and vow to protect the children of this country from further abuse. This October, men all over the country are coming together to say NO MORE to child violence and end the suffering. Join me and become a polished Man. So Man Up and Paint one or all of your nails and show Pakistan your softer side. Children stay strong in silence every day, there is nothing tougher than showing your solidarity and painting a nail for them 💙 Nominate 3 mates to do the same. #PakistanForPolishedMan #PakistanIsPolished #PolishedManCampaign #EndViolenceAgainstChildren #IamAPolishedMan #PolishedManPk @polishedman

Shaniera Akram, wife of Pakistani cricket legend Wasim Akram, shared a collage of prominent Pakistani faces from different fields and shed light on the Polished Man Campaign.

“Some of the toughest men Pakistan has ever produced are showing their softer side and colouring one nail to represent the millions of children who suffer every day at the hand of an adult. Our heroes say ‘We will not tolerate child abuse in our country’,” she tweeted.

The #PolishedMan campaign has been around for years, said Shaniera. Pakistani celebrities and sporting stars joined this international campaign to show their support for children suffering in silence in Pakistan, she added.

Shaniera emphasised the need for discussions on child abuse and urged other men to join the cause and show their support.

“Talking about child abuse is better than not talking about child abuse! We need to infiltrate people’s 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 Shehzad Roy, Adnan Siddiqui, Humayun Saeed, Mikaal Zulfikar and Bilal Ashraf have all joined the Polished Man Campaign.

    There could have been other ways of expressing support for children who suffered abuse….I mean what is next,male celebs wearing lipstick or lingerie?

    This is a slight beginning of moral degradation.

    Hope instead they made up some gesture in support instead of this stupid act that non of male children atleast would like to associate with
