Red Lines book banned due to offensive religious content, not political nature: Josephine Teo



The move to ban the book, “Red Lines: Political Cartoons and the Struggle Against Censorship”, was made because of its offensive religious content, and not because of its political nature. Minister for Communications and Information Josephine Teo said the political cartoons are not the problem as some are already in circulation. But she added the book contained “offensive images that denigrate religions”, including reproductions of Charlie Hebdo’s cartoons of Prophet Muhammad. There are also demeaning references to Hinduism and Christianity.
