This is why Mehjabin-Nisho must appear in court
Six people, including then-popular couple Mehzabin Chowdhury and actor Afran Nisho, are due to appear in court.
They were summoned to appear in court. April 25 next year has been set as the date for filing the reply to the defendants’ summons.
Judge Asaduzzaman of the Dhaka Metropolitan Court of Sessions issued the order in the review case on Wednesday.
They have been issued a subpoena to appear in court in a review case for allegedly using ‘negative’ words about people with disabilities and disabilities in TV dramas.
Other defendants in the case are Channel Eye managing director Faridur Reza Sagar, news chief Shaikh Siraj, drama scriptwriter Moinul Sanu and director Rubel Hasan.
Barrister Al Mamun Russell, the plaintiff’s solicitor, said the magistrate said in his order that there was no direct insult to the disabled in the play’s dialogue. Considering that Section 37 of the Rights and Protection of Persons with Disabilities Act 2013 makes it an offense to directly or indirectly create a negative and false impression on persons with disabilities, which the Court of First Instance held ignored and the investigator himself admitted that the defendants had committed the act, but there was an idea at the time of making the drama. No it would be a crime and apologized on Facebook. By this means, guilt is proven but ignorance of the law is never taken as an excuse and excuses on social media are not a chance to escape the punishment of the law. The court accepted the review case and issued a summons to appear in court.
