Last Laughs: A storm’s predicted in Karnataka and the farce of leaders eating meals with Dalits

The best cartoons of the day, chosen by editors at ThePrint.

The selected cartoons appeared first in other publications, either in print or online, or on social media, and are credited appropriately.

On Sify, Satish Acharya pokes fun at PM Narendra Modi’s comment that the Congress should be patriotic like Mudhol hounds, the first indigenous dogs to be trained for the Army. Acharya suggests the patriotic dog would rather run away from Modi.

On FirstPost, Manjul does a witty take on Haryana chief minister M.L. Khattar’s recent comment on namaz, pointing out that while Muslims were being told to not pray in public, cows roamed everywhere because people were too scared to offend the Hindu majority.

Hemant Morparia mocks politicians eating at Dalit homes just for a photo opportunity even as the community continues to face atrocities and marginalisation across the country.

Cartoonist Sajith Kumar illustrates that Narendra Modi and his party members may be reading India’s history upside down. This follows the Aligarh Muslim University-Jinnah controversy and the BJP’s tendency to blame Jawaharlal Nehru for the problems in the country.

In the The Asian Age, Gokul Gopalakrishnan shows that the only storm hitting Karnataka is Modi’s comments and speeches ahead of the election.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
