Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray apologised for the cartoon which appeared in the party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ that purportedly mocked the Maratha silent protesters.
A tweet attributed to him on an account stated the apology. “If the cartoon has hurt someone, I am really sorry for it,” the tweet read.
The publication also mocked students of Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and tried to portray the spread of dengue using the caricature of martyred soldiers. Many on social media saw the cartoon as a form of ‘sick joke’ and Shiv Sena’s use of freedom of speech to publish something distasteful.
