Dhaka: The Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) has written to objecting to anti-Bangladeshi garments and insulting dialogue in French movies released on Netflix.

On Monday, BGMEA’s president Faruque Hassan wrote a letter to Netflix Ted Anthony Sarandos. The last movie, The Last Mercenary, directed by David Sharon, was released on Netflix on July 30.

According to the letter, the film contains anti-Bangladesh propaganda, anti-Bangladeshi dress (Made in Bangladesh) propaganda and insulting dialogue.

The film shows the main star ‘The Mist’ in his dialogue making negative remarks about Bangladeshi-made clothing, which hurts the feelings and pride of Bangladeshis as a nation.

So soon after the release of the film, BGMEA President Faruque Hassan objected to the matter and requested in a letter to remove the offensive dialogue or scene from the film.

At the same time, he requested the CEO of Netflix to suspend the screening of the film until the offensive dialogue or scene is removed.

In this regard, BGMEA further informed that a letter has been sent to the director of the said film, Secretary of Bangladesh Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Secretary of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Ambassador of Bangladesh to France, Ambassador of Bangladesh to Washington and US Ambassador to Dhaka.
