Bangladesh Banned the Japanese Cartoon Doraemon to Curb Hindi Invasion

Feb 16, 2013 15:55 IST

Bangladesh banned the Japanese cartoon Doraemon in the third week of February 2013 because of the fears that children watching the Hindi-dubbed version were struggling to cope up with their native language- Bangla.

Information Minister of Bangladesh Hasanul Haque Inu declared that all television channels which screened Doraemon were sent official notifications in which it was ordered that all the series should be taken off-air. The minister declared that the Government of Bangladesh did not want the educational atmosphere of the children to be disturbed by this Japanese cartoon.

It was demanded by the lawmakers that television channels should be permitted to air only those foreign cartoons which were dubbed in Bengali.

Doraemon is a Japanese cartoon character created by manga artist Fujiko F. Fujio. The character is actually a robotic cat to help pre-teen boy named Nobita.
