Freed Myanmar comedian looks ahead

Zarganar holds no grudges against his jailers and hopes sanctions will go with more reforms.

Maung Thura Zarganar’s jokes against Myanmar’s military rulers have landed him in prison four times – 11 years in total – but now, the forthright comedian is free as part of the government’s democratic reforms.

And even though Zarganar has no plans of toning down his controversial brand of humour, he holds no grudges against his jailers and wants to see sanctions lifted if his country continues to reform.
