Zunar: ruling gives me strength continue fight

Zulkiflee Anwar Ulhaqur, better known as Zunar, did not take long to voice his displeasure with the recent ruling by a Malaysian court that said his 2010 arrest for sedition was lawful, but the continued confiscation of his cartoons was not.

Comics Reporter Tom Spurgeon has the full statement released by Zunar. The fighting words part:

The court has denied my fundamental right as a political cartoonist which contradicts the Malaysian Constitution that guarantees the freedom of expression to its citizen.

Even though in the other part of the judgment the court had instructed the police to return all my books and drawing and pay the damages, this “play-safe ruling” does not impress me.

This ruling will not stop me, but will give me more strength to “Fight Through Cartoon.”
