Politik Penyuntingan (2014 – 2020)

After Zunar, 2014 re-presented in Index Magazine Online.

2014 – Zunar Published the source cartoon for this image to celebrate 57 years of Merdeka.

2020 – Zunar clarified the difference between a ‘reference to’ and a ‘manipulation of’ an image in the context of the Jata Negara controversy. Also in this year, the Minister for Communications and Multimedia announced, quite unthinkingly, that the requirement for a licence in order to produce distribute or exhibit films (arising from sections 21 and 22 of the Perbadanan Kemajuan Filem Nasional Act 1981) would apply to personal social media. 

Bebas!
Penyuntingan berkarya …
Penyuntingan diri kerana takut gagal,
atau kerana berani berjaya;
Penyuntingan penaja ataupun penyelaras,
Penyuntingan kerajaan;
Penyuntingan adab,
Penyuntingan kerana maruah,
kerana agama bangsa;
Tapi Tuhan nampak segala yang ada di dalam hati …
So jangan tertekan oleh saudara seperjuangan;
Jangan berdiam …
Bebas!
Kerana yang di dalam adalah apa yang ada!

Filem
Penyuntingan Penggambaran,
Penyuntingan Pembahasan,
Penyuntingan Pengertian,
Penyuntingan  Pendirian,
Penyuntingan  Pertimbangan,
Penyuntingan Pemimpinan.
Tammat

Politik Identiti (1996 -2020)

After cover of a book by Lat titled Dr.Who?!, 2020 from a thesis fragment found online.

1996 – Pop star M. Nasir gets boycotted by state owned media for being kurang ajar or kasar towards the sitting Prime Minister in asking, audaciously, “Siapa Mahathir?”

2004 – Esteemed Malaysian cartoonist Lat launches his 27th book titled titled Dr Who?!: Capturing the Life and Times of a Leader in Cartoons. Epitomizing the notion of halus, Lat was able to get Mahathir himself to launch the book. Surely, the latent reference to M. Nasir’s earlier question was heard by Malaysians even at the time!

2020 – M. Nasir’s alleged insult has now become a genuine question on every Malaysian’s mind! Who is he really? What does he stand for … does he stand for anything beyond Machiavellian self-interest?
