While the cartoonists have freedom of speech and expression as a fundamental right, they should also remember that there are some fundamental duties and one of them is to respect the national symbols of India. On seeing the cartoons of Aseem Trivedi, though I understood his noble intentions, I find some of his cartoons disturbing and disgusting. While his cartoons in no way can amount to national sedition, he managed to disrespect all the national symbols (some of them are really clever). I request all cartoonists to show some restraint on what you are depicting. Depicting Mother India getting raped is quite nauseating.
Cartoons by Asleem which I felt are clever:
