ZunarBenar: A Ticking Time Bomb

A sketch for BenarNews by Malaysian Cartoonist Zunar.


Zunar is a Malaysian cartoonist who takes aim at corruption and other forms of excess with his pen. His sharp satirical humor has led to two arrests and the banning of several of his books in recent years by the Malaysian government, which considers his art "detrimental to public order." Zunar is currently facing nine charges of sedition over tweets he sent in February 2015 criticizing the latest jailing of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim. Zunar is the recipient of multiple awards including an International Press Freedom Award from the Committee to Protect Journalists.
