Afghan prisoner makes sculptural portrait of Clinton
NILI (Pajhwok): An Afghan prisoner in the central Daikundi province, made a bust of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner of the United States for her supporting remarks about Muslims during the election campaign.
Sher Hassan Hawida, an inmate in Daikundi jail, told Pajhwok Afghan News he made half statue of Clinton over the past six months. He was always optimistic for peace and stability in Afghanistan, so he supported the leading democrat candidate in the hope that she will struggle for peace and security in Afghanistan.
During the presidential campaign between Donald Trump and Clinton, Hawida was trying to know who was thinking for peace in the world. Later, he realized that the slogans of Clinton were concentrating on human rights issues.
“I heard the remarks of Clinton, saying that both Muslims and Christians of the world are brothers. I was impresses with such words of Clinton, so I decided to make a statue of my favourite politician in order to support peace, human values and rights and freedom of expression. I am hopeful for the victory of the politician to bring peace and security in Afghanistan,” he said.
Hillary Clinton had condemned Donald Trump’s call to bar Muslims from entering the United States during the presidential race, saying such remarks against American Muslims hurts us at home and they are not only “offensive” but “dangerous” too.
Hawida wanted to make the complete statue of Clinton, but due to limited facilities for him, he only could create the sculptural bust of her from plaster and clay.
