Even as Najib faces mounting pressure from Mahathir and Razaleigh, Malaysia’s leading political cartoonist Zunar reports: “My lawyer just informed that the government will charge me with NINE charges under The Sedition Act tomorrow, with the bail is about RM50,000. Otherwise I will be in jail.”

Its only a drawing, its some writing , its some stories but the pen is mightier than you can imagine if it is not being use resposibily. It could destroy a nation, it could destroy the peace and harmony of the country if it is not nip in the bud.
