The government has cracked down on pornographic and indecent content online, but some appears to have eluded their vigilance

The Bangladesh government has a firm stance against pornography in Bangladesh. Despite the government many actions against propagation of pornography, the names of pornographic actors have been found in high school question papers.

The Dhaka Tribune recently obtained photographs of a question script from the Ramakrishna Mission High School in Dhaka that named two prolific pornstars in the Multiple Choice Questions section.

The ninth grade Bangla First Paper exam was held on April 17, according to the school authorities.

In question #8, students were asked who wrote the classic Bengali novel “Aam Atir Bhepu” and Sunny Leone, an Indian-born pornstar-turned-actor was one of the four options. 

In question#21, students were asked who the father of Rabindranath Tagore is, and put Lebanese-born pornstar-turned-actor Mia Khalifa as an option.

Some resourceful and quick-witted individuals snapped photos of the bizarre script and posted them online. Shortly afterwards, criticize began to fly from all over the internet.

When contacted, Joy Prakash Sarkar, head teacher of Ramakrishna Mission High School, told Dhaka Tribune that these were unwanted mistakes and the school authorities were unaware of them.

He said Shankar Chakrabarty, the Bangla teacher for ninth grade, was responsible for preparing the script. He also promised to take strict actions against Shankar very soon.

Shankar Chakrabarty could not be reached for comments.

Begum Akhter Kamal, professor of Bangla Department at Dhaka University, told Dhaka Tribune that this sort of behaviour paints teachers in an unflattering light.

She said: “The teacher made an unforgivable mistake. He should be brought in book.”
