Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece Saamana editor Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday apologized for publishing an objectionable cartoon which led to a storm of protests from the Maratha community.

Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece Saamana editor Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday apologised for publishing an objectionable cartoon which led to a storm of protests from the Maratha community, including attacks on the newspaper’s office and printing press.

The controversial cartoon by Shreenivas Prabhudesai took a swipe at the ongoing month-long agitations and huge protest marches by the Maratha community across the state.

The cartoon showed a couple kissing with the caption “mooka (kissing) morcha”, which enraged the Marathas in the state.
