May 27, 2011
A pictorial exhibition highlighting different issues confronting the Muslim world, and the double-standards of the United States vis-à-vis their resolution, was held at the residence of former city nazim, Naimatullah Khan.
The exhibition was attended by the Iranian Counsel General in Karachi, Abbas Ali Abdollahi, the deputy chief of Jammat-e-Islami Pakistan, Professor Abdul Ghafoor Ahmed, central leader of Palestine Foundation, and a former member Sindh Assembly, Muzzafer Hashmi, senior journalists, columnists, lawyers, and people belonging to other walks of life visited the exhibition
The exhibition was jointly inaugurated by the Iranian Counsel General, and Professor Abdul Ghafoor Ahmed.
Over a hundred paintings and pictures highlighting the Israeli brutalities in Palestine, US war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan, Indian repression in occupied Kashmir, and brutalities being faced by Muslims in Chechnya, Burma , and other parts of the world were displayed.
Addressing the visitors, the Iranian Counsel General condemned the US double standards towards human rights issues. He said the US appears to be the champion of human rights in the world, while in reality; it has been involved in gross violations of the human rights in Iraq, Afghanistan, Bolivia, Haiti , and other parts of the world.
The US is the only country so far, which has exposed itself as the most unreliable and non-serious country as far as the use of nuclear weapons is concerned, Mr. Abdollahi said referring to killing of hundreds of thousands of Japanese in the World War-II by atomic bombs dropped by the US on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
“ How ironic it is that on the one hand, US is always at its feet to let lose a reign of terror in Muslim world in the name of human rights, while on the other hand it has been patronizing the Zionist state, which is involved in worst kind of human rights violations against Palestinians”, he maintained.
Professor Ghafoor Ahmed said that despite the Israeli brutalities in Palestine , and direct patronization of the Zionist state by the US , the just struggle of Palestine will continue till its success.
Lambasting the role of United Nations, Professor Ghafoor observed that the UN has turned out to be a tool of the United States and the western world to subjugate the Muslim world.
“The UN has miserably failed to protect Muslims of Iraq, occupied Kashmir, Palestine and Afghanistan from repression of US, India, and Israel”, Professor Ghafoor said adding that the UN, on the one hand, could not stop the US from attacking Iraq despite a veto by China, Russia and France, the Security Council, whereas on the other hand, it could not implement its own resolutions vis-à-vis plebiscite in occupied Kashmir.
Former city nazim, Naimatullah Khan observed that these double standards by the US , are the actual cause of growing extremism in the world.
He said that America has been involved in killing of millions of people in wars during its 200 years old history, but ironically it has declared Iran, Syria, Cuba and other countries that do not bow to its hegemony, axis of evil, which is a joke.
