Kabul – A hugely popular Afghan comedy show is to reconstruct the infamous George W Bush shoe hurling incident – only this time the US president gets it in the face.
Bush is highly unpopular among most ordinary Afghans and footage of the US president ducking as an Iraqi journalist hurled two shoes in his direction has been shown repeatedly on television here.
Now a satirical show has used actors to reconstruct Sunday’s press conference in Baghdad, ensuring that this time the shoe hits Bush in the face.
The producer of the show, “Zang-i-Khatar” (Alert Bell), said he wanted to send a message of solidarity with Iraq.
“The aim of the programme, besides making people laugh… is to convey solidarity with the people and journalists of Iraq,” Hanif Hamgaam said ahead of the show’s airing on Wednesday evening.
Iraqi journalist Muntazer al-Zaidi became an instant star in the Muslim world when he threw his shoes at Bush on Sunday during the US leader’s farewell visit to the country invaded by American forces in 2003.
It is to be hoped that the Afghan comedians will not be arrested and tortured for this, like happened to Muntazer al-Zaidi; see also here and here. George W. Bush’s ‘new’ Afghanistan has a record of media censorship; of death sentences for journalism; etc.
