Updates on Indian cartoonist Aseem Trivedi

I’m playing a bit of catchup on the news surrounding Indian cartoonist Aseem Trivedi who was arrested for sedition for cartoons depicting the Parliament building as a toilet and another featured Mother India about to be gang raped by a character labeled “corruption.”

this isn’t surprising, as the government needs to save face once this case got so much coverage. But without a codified freedom of speech, there will still be splitting of hairs over what Indians are officially allowed to be offended by.
