Four punches were hurled at him when he was attacked by a group of Umno members in Komtar yesterday, said political cartoonist Zulkiflee Anwar Ulhaque (Zunar).

“They also pulled my collar, I was physically assaulted, but I kept calm, I did not want to retaliate,” Zunar told Malaysiakini.

“As an award recipient of the Cartoonist for Peace Award presented by former United Nations secretary-general Kofi Anan in Geneva this year, I want peace, not war,” he added.

Zunar said the leader of the group introduced themselves as Umno Youth members. They were led by Penang Umno youth chief Rafizal Abdul Rahim.
