Residents in Qatar are devising innovative ways to show their support with Qatar's leadership. People are showing their solidarity by wearing T-shirts having pictures and messages of Emir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and pasting the pictures and messages on vehicles and outside shops.
Also the pictures are being posted WhatsApp and facebook profiles of individuals. Many apparel shops are participating in this campaign and have designed the T shirt which carry the face of Emir and written the phrase “Glorious Tamim”, and they are distributing it free to people at all areas.
This trend has become viral on social media, and residents are asking others to do the same.
Many citizens have circulated pictures and videos announcing that they are distributing T shirts was designed by both white and black colors, and people liked such initiative, and said that such blockade will take residents more closer to our Emir.
Jassim tweet that “In such difficult situation we have to show our loyalty to our Emir and our love country Qatar. The difficult days make us more strong than before.”.
Another one tweet that “I ask all Qatari to post Emir picture at all areas and this is the least thing that we can do for our leader.”
One more also added that “We will not sell our principles and Qatar will remain strong on its enemies”.
The trend has become popular in the facebook and Twitter even among people outside of Qatar.
They like Qatar and its position on different issues especially about Palestinian issue which every Muslim care about. The act mainly was reaction to the fierce campaign led by three Gulf brotherly countries which recently cut ties with Qatar, and many countries are saying that the blockade is not acceptable and must end.
