Shaniera Akram, the wife of Wasim Akram and rights activist, took to her social media to introduce the Polished Man Campaign which displays the softer side of men in the country to raise awareness about child abuse. Through this campaign, Shaneira has shared the photos of many famous Pakistani male celebrities and wrote, “Some of the toughest men Pakistan has ever produced are showing their softer side & coloring one nail to represent the millions of children who suffer every day at the hand of an adult. Our Pakistani heroes say ‘We WILL NOT tolerate child abuse in our country’.”

The Polished Man campaign has been around for quite some time now, however, the need for it is at an all-time high in 2020 due to the rapid rise in child abuse cases in Pakistan. Pakistani male celebrities and sports stars have joined this international campaign to show their support for children suffering in silence from child abuse in Pakistan.

Moreover, Shaniera Akram goes onto encourage other men to also join the Polished Man campaign to raise awareness of the abundant cases of child abuse in Pakistan. “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 coloring his nail can spark a wave of awareness, then so be it! Man up, Colour your nail today.”

Several celebrities have joined the Polished Man campaign such as Wasim Akram, Bilal Ashraf, Adnan Siddiqui, Shahzad Roy, Humayun Saeed, and Mikaal Zulfiqar joined the cause by posting their selfies with their fingernails painted.
