The National Human Rights Commission chairman today termed “dangerous” the police authorities’ instruction for seeking their prior permission before personifying cops’ role in visual media.
“It’s a dangerous matter! …. Who give such ideas to them (police)?” Mizanur Rahman said at a programme in Dhaka this afternoon.
In many cases, performers play the role of police in visual media with improper rank batches on their uniform that create confusion among the audiences, said Jahangir Alam Sarker, additional deputy commissioner (Media) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, on Thursday.
Besides, negative and comic role of police also convey a wrong message to the audience, he said.
