Outraged Muslims want Mid-Day newspaper office put on fire for anti-triple-talaq cartoon

Mid-Day newspaper is under fire for publishing a cartoon that suggested that it were mostly the conservative Muslim men who wanted to retain the shariat law, especially the aspects related to triple talaq.

The cartoon was carried in the newspaper published from Mumbai on page 2 today, and was drawn by noted cartoonist Manjul. Following is the now ‘controversial’ cartoon:

The cartoon that upset some Muslims

In the past few weeks, there have been many rallies and demonstrations in different parts of the country by burqa clad women, who have opposed the proposed anti-triple-talaq bill, which seeks to criminalize the practice. These rallies have been primarily organized by the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, which has been arguing in favour of the practice of triple talaq even before the Supreme Court declared it invalid.

Although the practice has been termed invalid by the apex court, media reports suggest that it has not stopped, due to which it is being argued that a law that criminalizes the practice is needed. However, Muslim groups and so-called liberals are opposing such a proposed law.

All such opposition has led to a belief that the proposed law is ‘unfair to Muslims’. And now some outraged Muslims have decided to vent their anger over the proposed law on the newspaper that published the above cartoon.

A Facebook page earlier today called Muslims to unite and protest against the Mid-Day newspaper. The page declared that the cartoon hurt the sentiments of Muslims, and termed it ‘cheap publicity’ by the newspaper. The post by the Facebook page further claimed that many organizations were planning to file an FIR against the newspaper.

The post attracted many angry comments from Muslim users who demanded strict action against Mid-Day. While some restricted to boycott of the newspaper and its allied publications, others were not happy with mere boycott. One user declared that Mid-Day ‘news channel’ was slave of Jews, while some demanded that the office of the newspaper should be put on fire:

The outrage was going on in full swing by the time this report was published.

Earlier a Marathi newspaper’s offices were attacked by angry Muslims as a cartoon on ISIS was deemed blasphemous by outraged Muslims.
