Masud Akhond is totally a new figure in film industry to me. I even didn’t heard the name of Masud Akhond before, but this guy made me cry by his documentary Slave Queen. While working on a desk that day I was checking my facebook news-feed. I found one of my friends liking a video link. I got interest and played the video.
Also on Dhaka Star: Slave Queen- Masud Akhond’s new movie
At first that was interesting but the last moments really touched my emotion! He has shown the brutality and horrible condition of Bangladeshi young girls. Some are being kidnapped and used as prostitute in many brothels. Later, his documentary was shown on Swedish television 14th April 2012.
I have embedded the documentary here. Don’t miss to check it out.
In this documentary Masud Akhond has shown much courage interviewing the 12 years old girl, Rani. We get an excellent sense of responsibility in him to bring out the hidden situation of poor Bangladeshi girls. There are a lot of causes behind the harassment on girls here is Bangladesh. Rani had to face the horrible situation of being a prostitute for the cause of her garment job lose. Another cause was, she had to manage living for her family and also, her little conception about the social devolution drove her to fall in trap of this illegal way of livelihood. Just like Rani, numerous girls are being kidnapped and sold in brothels and other illegal places in Bangladesh. Measurement of this selling is checked in Asia and India but no one knows how many girls are victim to this curse in Bangladesh. So, rising social awareness about this tort has become a crying need.
Masud Akhonds has tried to show the miserable condition of all the helpless girls clearly through his documentary, Slave Queen. I salute to Masud Akhond for his awesome documentary, which is already got a huge popularity and appreciation to the social media users. Wish good luck for his upcoming movie, Slave Queen based on this story.
