Syrian Uprising: Heartbreaking Story of Zainab

In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

A video presentation based on an amazing poem in Arabic by Kuwaiti poet, Ahmed al-Kandari. The poem is about the heartbreaking story of Zainab, a young Syrian girl brutally tortured, electrocuted, decapitated by the gangs of Bashar al Assad. The poem symbolises the story of all the young girls of Syria repressed by the Syrian regime in the uprisings of 2011/12 and expresses, in powerful verse, the brutality of the Syrian regime, the inaction of the Muslim rulers, and the emotions of people against the tyrant, Bashar al-Assad. This poem is one of most powerful literary expressions of the Arab Spring, the Syrian uprising in particular. Translation of poem into English, subtitling and video compilation by NahdaProductions.
