The most recent caricature by Charlie Hebdo shows the migrant attacks on women living in Cologne that took place on New Year's night, but brings back Aylan like a running gag.
The caricature depicts a girl who is running away from men whose appearances resemble a cross between a pig and monkey. In the upper left corner of the image, the author drew Aylan Kurdi. The inscription under the caricature clearly hints that if the baby had survived and grown up he would be a rapist.
The recent cartoon has elicited a fresh storm of criticism from social media users.
Sputnik contacted the boy's father, Abdullah Kurdi and asked him to comment on the magazine’s most recent caricature.
"To be honest, after seeing this picture, I could not hold back my tears. I cannot even describe the feeling of bitterness that I experienced at that moment. What they did is horrible; it is an outrage to the memory of my son. Aylan was only two years old when his life was cut short."
The editorial staff should show respect to Aylan, to me and to my family. But the opposite has happened. This magazine should have treated the memory of the victims with respect — especially children,” Kurdi said.
He went on to say that previously the magazine had published insulting cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed and even Allah.
"If they dared to make a mockery of the most sacred, it is not surprising that they have published a caricature of my child.” “I appeal to this magazine and to the world, and urge everyone to respect the memory of all the dead children. Do not reopen the wounds of their loved ones as they continue to bleed," Kurdi said.
