A Muslim group on Wednesday organised a two-day photo and cartoon exhibition named 'Silent Screams' to protest against the forthcoming visit of US President George W Bush to Hyderabad on March 3.
The Students Islamic Organisation, the students wing of the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, has put up the exhibition depicting the bloodbath let loose by the United States in Iraq, Afghanistan and other parts of the world and the terror unleashed by Israel in Palestine.
The exhibition has a mix of pictures and cartoons. Killings of innocent men, women and children in Iraq, inhuman treatment meted out to inmates of the notorious Abu Ghraib prison, wailings of Afghan women and children and the brutal murder of Palestinians in Israeli attacks are vividly depicted in media pictures displayed at the two-day event.
A number of cartoons and caricatures portray Bush as an international terrorist, an oppressor, a mass killer and guzzler of petrol and gas.
A non-stop multimedia presentation on the "war crimes" committed by the US is another highlight of the exhibition.
Explaining the purpose behind the exhibition, a functionary said that the SIO wanted to protest against the Bush visit in a democratic way by creating awareness among the people through pictures, literature and cartoons.
The SIO is also distributing pamphlets on the damage caused to the Muslim world through the hegemonic policies and actions of Bush.
