There were two cartoons recently that kicked up huge controversy.
Both are distasteful. One is obscene and the other insults the Indian National Emblem
We have great cartoonists like Shankar; Laxman; Ajit Ninan; Manjul; Satish etc Even the Amul cartoon packs political punches every day.But none of them reduced themselves as an apology for a cartoonist as these two cartoons demonstrates.
Humour is lost and what is left is perversion and venom.
Still there is no need to make a martyr of the likes of Azeem Trivedi by arresting him. After all he is a third rate cartoonist with a perverted sense of humour
