PETALING JAYA: Cartoonist Zunar has decided to call off his exhibition scheduled to be held in George Town tomorrow and featuring political caricatures based on current issues in the country, saying it was due to likely disturbance planned by troublemakers.

In a statement today, the satirist whose real name is Zulkiflee Anwar Ulhaque claimed that the exhibition had to be cancelled after it was learnt that Penang Umno Youth was distributing posters to get members to “visit” the site of the display at Beach Street tomorrow morning.

“Last year’s experience tells me this is not going to be a normal visit, but more an act of physical intimidation,” he said.

“Umno Youth under (its chief) Khairy Jamaluddin has on many occasions become very rowdy and aggressive, as seen at my exhibition in Komtar last November.

“So, I have no choice but to call off the exhibition due to security reasons,” he added.

“Nevertheless, this will not stop me from disseminating messages of anti-corruption through my cartoons,” Zunar said.

Zunar said the leader of the group introduced themselves as Umno Youth members. They were led by Penang Umno youth chief Rafizal Abdul Rahim.

Zunar: Umno members hurled 4 punches at me, pulled my collar .

Four punches were hurled at him when he was attacked by a group of Umno members in Komtar yesterday, said political cartoonist Zulkiflee Anwar Ulhaque (Zunar).

“They also pulled my collar, I was physically assaulted, but I kept calm, I did not want to retaliate,” Zunar told Malaysiakini.

“As an award recipient of the Cartoonist for Peace Award presented by former United Nations secretary-general Kofi Anan in Geneva this year, I want peace, not war,” he added.

Zunar melee: Umno Youth behaved like thugs, says Exco via

GEORGE TOWN: Umno’s harassment of an editorial cartoonist’s exhibition is despicable, a Penang executive councillor said following Umno Youth’s protest which turned into a near melee yesterday.

State executive councillor Abdul Malik Abul Kassim said Umno’s attack on Zulkiflee Anwar Ulhaque, better known as Zunar, showed the BN party had a “jelik” (god-forsaken) behaviour.

“I am sure the national Umno leadership is embarrassed by its Penang Youth members’ uncivilised antics, behaving like thugs.

“Zunar’s artworks are based on what Malaysians feel, giving a funny take on scandals by the ruling elite through cartoons.

“If that scares Penang Umno members, then it means Umno’s end is near,” Malik said in a statement.

Some 50 Penang Umno Youth members stormed the exhibition on the third floor, just outside the state government at about 2.30pm.

They demanded to see Zunar, whose real name is Zulkiflee Anwar Haque, to vent their disapproval on the suggestive artworks featuring caricatures of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, which they labelled as seditious.

The situation turned ugly when Zunar refused to see them. Tension escalated at the scene, so much so that the Federal Reserve Unit (FRU) had to be called in to control the mob.

The cartoonist finally relented after about an hour as the wing members stood their ground.

Meeting the members at about 4pm, Zunar faced the angry pack under strong police presence before ordering his staff to cancel the display.

Some 20 pieces of caricatures were taken down for the sake of security as instructed by the police.

About 30 people disrupted an exhibition featuring the works of political cartoonist Zulkifli Anwar Ulhaque, better known as Zunar, at the Komtar building in Penang this afternoon.

The group was led by Penang Umno Youth chief Rafizal Abdul Rahim and Gabungan Perwakilan Melayu Pulau Pinang chief Rizuad Mohd Azudin.

After arriving at the venue around 3pm, the group hurled obscenities at Zunar, and demanded that he remove the cartoons which were deemed insulting to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

Though the group gave Zunar a 30-minute time frame to remove his work, they however grew impatient and began to kick the drawings, which were affixed to stands.

Zunar’s manager Azura Aziz said two artworks were damaged in the incident.

“They kicked down the works depicting Anwar Ibrahim. They swung boxes, threatening to throw them at us.

“They told Zunar to remove his cartoon books and threatened to burn them,” she added.

Some 30 police personnel, including members of the light strike force, were present during the incident but could not contain the group.

The group left at 3.45pm to lodge a police report, while Azura said she will also lodge a report because the group threatened to disrupt Zunar’s other programmes in Penang.
