    Being a cartoonist isnít it my right to express my views through cartoons?

    I am a cartoonist and work for a local newspaper. I am bit sarcastic in my cartoons and mostly target politicians. Recently an MLA has filed a complaint against me as I disrespect him as well as the honourable Government. I donít know I am guilty or not? What should I do now? Donít I have the right to express my views?

    Dear Sir,

    You definitely has the right to express your view but the way chosen and words chosen should be correct.

    Being a cartoonist and being sarcastic is not wrong. But you should put your point in such a way that can teach the guilty a lesson without pointing the fingers to you. Also, you should try not to take names. If one is wrong, a sarcasm without the name specified will tooo work. Being in such a profession, you should be ready to handle such situations. What you an do if you really want to sweep easily and feel that you cat fight, you go and apologize for your act and ask them to cancel the complaint. promising them not to repaet this.

    Else if you feel, you are right, go ahead and defend yourself keeping valid reasons and telling the court that its a part of your job to tell the respectable people if they made some mistake. No where it is personal and to hurt him but it was a way to tell him what general public thinks about him.. and that to benefiit him only.... If yopu respect your views and following the right path, you need not worry.

    But you should be guily or no... ? only you can answer this question

    As a cartoonist you have a right to express your views but it shouldn't hurt someones feelings. we shouldn't view someone negetively among newsreaders.what readers need is truth.examine that what you are going to do is right or wrong.if you are right then go for it and don't see back.if it get more complicated situation ,then post something good which that MLA has done.so that he will become problem for you.

    You have the right to express your views.At the same time he also has the rights to complain against you.Actually politicians should have the sense of humour and should not take it to heart.As cartoonists point out their wrongs and weakpoints ,being hurt by these they lodge complaints.When a cartoonist in America has drawn a cartoon where he turned George Bush's face into a western toilet or commode he was never serious but laughed.

    Hi,

    Yes , you can always express you views through cartoons or any other method, as we all share the right to freedom of speech, with the rights you also need to follow the duites and the guidelines. You must not make cartoons, which are directly hurting some ones sentiments. You can use the indirect way of sarcasm. This creates a bigger impact too as it questions the authority of the person or the organisation concerned, Your views should be accepted by the society in a positive manner and it should drive the public into well being. You must always remember that your cartoons should not consist of vulgar statements or designs, plus it should not have abuses and the cartoons must not be provoking.

    All the best!

    Hi..You are certainly right and you should not think the opposite..Today most of the politicians are CORRUPT and if anyone tries to raise their voice against them they try to suppress that person..So if that MLA whom you are targeting through your cartoons is corrupt and doing some wrong practices then you are certainly right to express your views against him ..That MLA is himself guilty and thus is trying to suppres you by complaining against..

    There are many cartoonists who make cartoons on politicians showing their reality but as this is a very sensitive topic the politicians try to suppress them..So you should carry on your work until you are served some legal notice or something like that..And if that happens you should appeal against it and fight for your right..

    Good luck.. THanks

    Yes, definately Being a cartoonist you have the right to express your views through cartoons. But the cartoons should not be abusive, not against the Indian terriotry, not disrespecting the religious belief. You can target on politican if he had done any mistake or scams. Don't worry about his case, it doesn't going to damage you if you are created that cartoon as per the facts. Similar case happened recently in India, all the people are with that cartoonist and even his reputation in the market also increased. So whatever cartoon you create, must be based on the correct facts.
