Pakistan: Truck artist honours George Floyd with eye-popping mural

Pakistani truck artist Haider Ali has painted a brightly coloured mural in honour of George Floyd in his Karachi home, as shown in footage from the Pakistani city on Friday. Haider decided to express his solidarity with the slain man in a traditional Pakistani form, dedicating an entire wall to him in a truck art style mural that includes a special saying. The mural reportedly reads «so what if we’re dark-skinned? We’ve got big hearts,» and «this world belongs neither to whites or blacks, only for those with big hearts.» Haider’s mural also reads the Urdu words «adal insaaf, barabari,» which respectively mean justice and equality. According to reports citing Haider, the starry night background is a symbol of the value of the colour black itself. 46-year old George Floyd, who died in police custody in Minneapolis on May 25, was laid to rest in Houston on Tuesday. Police officer Derek Chauvin who was filmed kneeling on Floyd's neck for almost nine minutes has been charged with second-degree murder while the three other officers were charged with aiding and abetting murder.
