The Malaysian government shut down for one month Makkal Osai, a Tamil-language newspaper that published a drawing of Jesus holding a cigarette and what appeared to be a can of beer. The government last year closed two newspapers for publishing cartoons of Mohammad that some Muslims said were offensive. Some observers say the government's actions against Makkal Osai were an attempt to appear even-handed, even though Christian leaders in the country say they accepted the newspaper's apology and didn't want it shut down.
