"Let my building burn, Justice needs to be served” was what Ruhel Islam said when he discovered his restaurant, @gandhi_mahal_mn had caught on fire due to the uprising in the wake of George Floyd’s death. By all accounts, the food from this Bangladeshi-Indian restaurant was delicious like this picture of their Tandoori platter. In addition, the restaurant owners were active in social justice causes, often holding climate change meetings in the restaurant. Furthermore, they only used ingredients found in local gardens even going as far as having an aquaponics system in their basement. I know that all of us want to help local DMV restaurants survive this pandemic but for one day, we can help Gandhi Mahal because if any restaurant needs to come back in this world, it’s this one. If social media needs to change, maybe it’s for causes like this. So, here’s what you do:
2️⃣tag a friend to follow them
3️⃣get a pic from their feed and write a post, not a story, a post
4️⃣point people to a link to their fundraiser (the FB one not the go fund me) - link in my bio
Let’s make a difference. 📷: @phatunicorn27.
