Silence

Taliha Quadri

Silence was inspired by my startling realisation how the lives of Muslims have been affected by terrorism during my stay in Pakistan when the horrific Peshawar School Massacre took place in 2014. The purpose of Silence is to highlight that Muslims are also human - not unlike you or I – and they are also victims of terrorism. Through Silence, I aim to convey that when such an awful loss of life takes place in the West, a Muslim’s loss and tragedy is no different to nor lesser than any other victim. Silence means to bring the readership to the understanding that silence in situations where victims are blamed and attacked is just as harmful.
