Cartoons in Protest!

Once in a while it is always nice to see fast and direct impact  of a cartoon in general people .   A cartoon I did on Saturday night about the news of our social welfare minister using inappropriate language to threaten the journalists went viral through the news paper and  social media on Sunday morning. Today I received this photograph below  from dhaka tribune's sylhet correspondent. Despite the fact that there was  no permission taken  to use the cartoon what so ever,  quite frankly I was delighted to see the cartoon being reused by  sylhety citizens to raise a protest.

Here is the cartoon:

In this era of social networking and mobile internet in Bangladesh, it still  fascinates  me the way news and information  passes from cities to cities over moments and  the action people takes with it. People are more aware and out spoken these days about their rights  what I also try promote through my work everyday.

Here is another cartoon I did on the same issue called "The Payback Policy" published in the DhakaTribune today. Its more of a satiric depiction of the new National Broadcast Policy and our social welfare ministers view on it.

''After all the suffering he had to go through while media was making fun of him with his smoking and sleeping disorder issues, he might have looked at the national broadcast policy as his own big''payback'' towards the journalists.''
