A blindfolded Muslim man stood on a Mumbai street and asked strangers who walked past him for a hug.

Mazim Milla stood at Chowpatty in Mumbai, with his hands wide open and a sign which read, "I'm a Muslim and I trust you. Do you trust me? Enough for a hug."

Initially, the crowd appeared to be hesistant. While some asked others to hug him, they themselves hid in a corner.



After some time, a man came forward and hugged Milla. A lot of others follow suit. Even women could be seen hugging and shaking hands with him.



The social experiment was conducted by iDiOTUBE, a youth entertainment Youtube channel.
