The uploaders may face arrest and up to 10-year imprisonment, Info Minister Hasan Mahmud said

The government is going to take action against all “illegal and immoral” web contents, Information Minister Hasan Mahmud has said.

He made the remarks while talking to reporters at the secretariat on Wednesday over a report titled “objectionable scenes in some local web series.”

“Such objectionable and pornographic contents should not be uploaded at any cost, and it’s a punishable offence under the Pornography Control Act,” he said.

Those who uploaded the content may face arrest and up to 10-year imprisonment, the minister said.

“The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission has already been informed that the contents were uploaded by two subsidiary companies of GP and Robi,” Mahmud said.

The government is looking into whether they have legal permission to upload such content, he said adding that the contents will be pulled down if they don’t have legal permission.

Moreover, the government will take action as they are punishable offence as per Pornography Act even if they have legal approval, Mahmud said.
