    A group of Muslims in Toronto conducted an experiment in a bid to raise global awareness of Islamophobia.

    A group of Muslims in Toronto staged a social experiment in a bid to raise global awareness of Islamophobia.

    The "Blind Trust Project" video which has gone viral shows a blindfolded man standing in a crowded street of downtown Toronto with two banners asking people to give him a hug if they trust him.

    The reaction was touching and inspiring. One man even left his car on the road to show his trust to Muslim people.

    "We wish to break down barriers and spread awareness about Islamophobia, encourage Muslims to behave as the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) taught us in kindness and good manners, to teach both extremist Muslims and non-Muslims that violence and terrorism is NOT Islam, and we urge non-Muslims to learn about the true Islam. Pick up a Quran and learn for yourselves the truth. People may interpret any faith in how they choose to perceive it, but the Quran is the only unaltered message/scripture," filmmaker AsoOmii Jay said.
