Zunar Files Suit Against Comics Ban

In news that broke across the wires yesterday, we learned that the Malaysian cartoonist Zunar -- the Malaysian citizen known as Zulkifli Anwar Ulhaque -- has sued to lift the ban on his comics publications that were banned under a public order ruling. Zunar claims, with the support of the international free speech communities, that this is an attempt to keep the political conversation those cartoons constitute out of the public eye. In his statement to the press he said he plans to challenge the public order logic on its face, asking the government to point out past riots caused by his cartoons. We wish all support to Zunar in his fight.
