ISLAMABAD — The Nation has apologized for a cartoon mocking Prime Minister Imran Khan which was deemed offensive by readers.
The newspaper published the artwork on its editorial page on Wednesday. It showed Khan drawing a carriage that has American President Donald Trump dangling a carrot in front of Khan, with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi seated.

Posting the apology on Twitter, the paper said: “We would like to apologise deeply for a cartoon that appeared on our pages. The artwork fell short of our standards and does not reflect our editorial policy. It should never have appeared.
“We are proud to be a nationalistic paper and we regret sincerely the attention taken by an artwork that was inappropriate, especially at the time of the UN General Assembly session taking place in New York.”
Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari appreciated Rameez Majid Nizami, Chairperson and Publishing Editor through a tweet. “@RameezaNizami Thank you for taking quick action on the issue of the offensive and inappropriate cartoon published in The Nation yesterday. Appreciate.”
