He 'could've been a doctor, a teacher, a loving parent,' Queen Rania posted in response to the cartoon. It depicted the 3-year-old Syrian boy who drowned in September as a molester in Germany.

Queen Rania of Jordan has shared a cartoon portraying Alan Kurdi, the Syrian boy who drowned trying to reach Europe, as a doctor.

The cartoon, by Jordanian cartoonist Osama Hajjaj, is a clear response to a cartoon in satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo suggesting Alan would have gone on to assault women had he lived.

The highly controversial cartoon was published in the latest issue of Charlie Hebdo, where a caption said Alan would have become a “groper in Germany” had he lived, in reference to mass sexual assaults upon women by men in Cologne.

It has been argued that the Charlie Hebdo cartoon, one of many published in the magazine featuring Alan, is satirising how attitudes towards migrants and refugees can and have changed.
