610

A cartoon in a national newspaper the Australian has been branded racist against Indians.

The cartoon which is captioned ‘Aid à la mode’, by Bill Leak depicts  a caricatured, underweight Indian family trying to eat the glass from a box of solar panels.

People have stated their disgust at the cartoon on social media which has been criticised for using  crude stereotyping which suggests India is not developed enough to understand solar power even though the government is set to invest $100 billion into solar energy.
