Bangladeshi Youtuber ‘mentally tortured’ by police for singing out of tune

A controversy sparked on social media when the police summoned an out-of-tune Bangladeshi singer at dawn, ordering him to stop performing unpleasant renditions of classical songs.

On Wednesday, “Hero” Alom, the Bangladeshi Youtuber, said that he was “mentally tortured” last week by the police who told him to stop performing classical songs, that he was too ugly to be a singer, and that he has to sign an “apology” bond.

“The police picked me up at 6 am and kept me there for eight hours. They asked me why I sing Rabindra and Nazrul songs,” he said.

According to Dhaka’s head detective, Harun ur Rashid, Alom has apologized for using treasured songs in his videos and for inappropriately wearing police uniforms.

Social media users were outraged by how Alom was treated, which they referred to as an attack on individual rights. BKM/ Expat Media
