Teri kursi ya teri zindagi


Who is being depicted in this cartoon? What incident is it referring to?









Quoting Jaspreet:

"Charles Guiteau is being depicted in the cartoon. He assassinated U.S. President James A. Garfield in 1881. That is the incident being referred to. "An office or your life" refers to his repeated requests for a state job as an ambassador in Vienna or Paris, which were rejected by the President. So he decided to kill him."

Charles Julius Guiteau, who assassinated U.S. President James A. Garfield on July 2, 1881.

He wrote a speech supporting Garfield during elections and believed he deserved an ambassadorship. When rejected he killed the President.
