The infamous French magazine Charlie Hebdo has yet again raised a controversy by publishing a cartoon in which the toddler Aylan Kurdi, one of the thousands of refugees fleeing Syrian crisis, who was found lying dead on the borders of Turkey few months ago.
The magazine has depicted the toddler Aylan Kurdi as adult committing sexual offenses against European woman. The cartoon was drawn in the back drop of incidents of such kind during New Year and Christmas celebrations in Europe. There were allegations that Syrian refugees have harassed European women in Germany.
However, while attempting to depict one lower side of the refugees Charlie Hebdo fell to another steep by comparing the dead Aylan Kurdi with a ‘would be grown up’ sexual offender.
This cartoon has been drawing flak from across the globe ever since it was noticed by the social media. Many called the cartoon out as racist and said it was in incredibly bad taste. The cartoon had suggested that if the refugee, Aylan Kurdi, had survived he would have committed the similar sexual offenses on women in Europe.
