    Bangladesh has banned Hindi-dubbed version of the popular Japanese cartoon ‘Doraemon’ from its TV screens over fears that youngsters hooked to it might struggle to learn their native tongue Bengali.

    Bangladesh’s Information Minister Hasanul Haque Inu told the Parliament yesterday “the government doesn’t want children’s educational atmosphere to get vitiated due to the telecast of Doraemon.”


    “The government has already issued notices directing to stop the telecast of unapproved foreign satellite television channels like Disney, Disney XD and Pogo. So, the airing of the children’s favourite cartoon Doraemon has been banned,” he added.

    Ruling Awami League lawmaker Shahriar Alam last week demanded immediate ban on airing of the cartoon Doraemon in the country. He had said television stations should air foreign cartoons after dubbing them in ‘Bangla’.

    Apprehending negative effect of the cartoon, Alam said that this type of cartoons might change the mother tongue in the future. He went on to say ‘Doraemon’ serial only taught about telling lies and speaking Hindi.

    He said the cartoon serials should teach the children about the moral and religious values and motivate them for education.

    ah Doraemon. A version of their native tongue can be easily made. Why imported Hindi? A copyright issue?

    Seems like Bangladesh is on its merry way to become another Pakhana-land.

    Puke forum and sometimes on BR. Keep it up.:thumb:

    Don't know about the language part by I hate it when my kids watch Doremon because that character if Nobita is a loser who hates school and it started to have an effect on my kids. It's not a good cartoon but its very difficult to control kids and remote :(

    After all, the language which is the Link Language of the Country is Bollywood Hindi spoken on the Streets of Mumbai, Maharashtra.

    It's Bombay Culture at the end of the day!
