This is Dr. Aafia Siddiqui’s story in visual form. The artist Christopher Towne is a young anti-war activist. He blogs here. Towne has given Muslimmatters.org exclusive permission to share his graphic novel. He says “the case of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui is both strange and disturbing. The so-called “War on Terror” demands periodic show trials, to make endless wars appear justified. Countless people have been victimized in this way, and Dr. Siddiqui’s case is such a grave injustice that it has gathered an international movement to demand her freedom.”
He also makes comics to tell the stories of Muslim prisoners.
“Most Americans have never heard the stories of Muslim prisoners – victims of “preemptive prosecution”, or “material support for terrorism”, or just outright frame-ups. To justify the “War on Terror”, the government has invented terrorists to scare the public.
He hopes that his blog can help to keep people aware of these stories.
I will exert some effort to make sure these people are not forgotten.
