Non Sequitur cartoon causing problems in Malaysia

The government of Malaysia may revoke The New Straits Times’ permit to print after it ran a Non-Sequitur cartoon. Wiley Miller’s February 20th’s Non Sequitur depicts an artist with a sign saying “Caricatures of Muhammad while you wait.”

The New Straits Times got a show-cause letter from the Internal Security Ministry and was given three days to explain in writing why action shouldn’t be taken against it for publishing the cartoon, which the ministry said breached the conditions of the newspaper’s publishing permit.
