Iran conducts anti-ISIS cartoon exhibition


In what seems to be an attempt to make fun of Islamic State militants, Iran has organized a caricature competition and solicited submissions from across the world. The reports says that it has already driven attention from UK, Peru, Italy, Cuba, France, Australia and Indonesia and that thousands of entries from these countries have already reached Iran.

Around 280 cartoons have been hand-picked for the final road. The authorities said that the best ones will be displayed across Syria, Iraq and Lebanon. The winners will be announced at a ceremony scheduled to be held in Tehran’s Arasbaran Cultural Centre on 31 May.

In an interview with Iran’s Press TV, Massoud Shoajaei Tabatabaii, the head of Iran’s House of Carttons, has said that in order to reveal the true nature of Islamic State, they decided to hold the contest, and that Islamic State tried to associate itself with Islam but in essence it is ignorant about the religion.
