There have been calls in recent times for the closure of TikTok, Likee, Vigo, Freefire, and PUBG games. Especially when the scandal of trafficking women and the news of money laundering of 100 crore taka by TikTok Hridoy was published in the media, the matter has created panic in the minds of the people. Law enforcement is also a huge concern in social media abuse. Therefore, control can be the only solution instead of stopping the technology, said Mohiuddin Ahmed, President of Bangladesh Mobile Phone Subscribers Association.
In a statement issued on Sunday, he said, “The government is committed to keeping pace with the current modern world and keeping the country’s economy afloat with high-speed internet and accessibility for all. “We have been demanding from the beginning how to control these media instead of shutting them down.
He added that in addition to these media, Emo is currently being used for the sex trade, while Opera Mini, VPN and popular Facebook also have sex obscenities and drug marketing. Then the question may arise as to whether all media will be shut down. The use of current technology has become a single fundamental right.
Therefore, as we get the permission of the censor board before releasing a film and the censor board does not have any work at present, but pornographic films are being aired on OTV platforms. Therefore, if all the means of communication with BTRC can be brought under the control of the censor board by making the censor board technology-friendly, the abuse can be stopped to a large extent. Moreover, we think it is important to play a major role in creating awareness for the government and operators.
