Banned political cartooning in Malaysia?

Banned political cartooning activities in what else will be left behind for fellow Malaysian to stimulate the thinking process? Rien!

“All three publications have been banned for their contents that can influence the people to revolt against the leaders and government policies, “ said the Home Ministry Secretary General Mahmood Adam on the official news agency Bernama.

“In Malaysia the government is like this. They won’t allow alternative views. You can do cartoons, you can do whatever art work you want, but it must be in line with the government (view),” said the 47-year-old, who has been a professional cartoonist for more than 20 years. “Drawing cartoons it’s my social obligation… I will highlight the issues that Malaysian cartoonist have failed to highlight so far,” he said.
