In Focus: Charlie Hebdo’s Controversial Cartoon
- French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo
- Published mocking cartoons of a dead child
- French magazine Charlie Hebdo recently published a series of disrespectful cartoons mocking the death of a Syrian child Aylan Kurdi.
- Charlie Hebdo has been the target of a terrorist attack in 2015, that was in response to a controversial Prophet Muhammad cartoons it published.
French publication Charlie Hebdo has always been in the media for wrong reasons. This time the magazine has taken a whole new approach to satire with its latest edition. Displaying cartoon pictures in its magazine, the first cartoon exhibits the picture of a dead Syrian child, Aylan, with a message in the background reading: ‘Welcome immigrants, so close to his goal. Promotion: Two children for the price of one.’
The second cartoon depicts a man like Jesus walking on water, while a child drowns partially. It reads: ‘Proof that Christians walk on water. Muslim children drown.’
Could Charlie Hebdo go any lower? It just did and it is disgusting!
