Shilpi Samity’s stance on Pori Moni issue is mysterious: Shakib Khan

August 15, 2021

Renowned Dhallywood actor Shakib Khan shared his viewpoints on social media about the much talked about arrest of Pori Moni. Shakib Khan wrote on his official Facebook page,
“Being her colleague, as far as I know, Pori Moni grew up without having her parents around her,” said Shakib. “There is a huge difference in the way she grew up, compared to others of her age with families. Her struggles have definitely not been the same as other people. Maybe, she could not make the right decision many times due to lack of proper guidance and support”.
He further wrote, “On August 10, Pori Moni’s centenarian grandfather rushed to the court premises to see his granddaughter. Even the risks of the coronavirus pandemic could not stop him. However, what a cruel time it is! He was unable to meet his granddaughter.”
I heard Pori Moni’s grandfather saying in the court premises, ‘Pori moni has done nothing for herself in her life. She always has donated for people and now the situation has made her victim. ‘
“Pori Moni’s case is now pending. I am not saying anything about that. I am not going to analyze the crime of the case in which he has been arrested. The country’s customary law court is respected. Surely there will be a fair trial at the end of an impartial investigation. But before that, the way she is being harassed on social media and facing vicious media trial, it is really sad”.
Expressing his viewpoint, Shakib Khan wrote, “even more tragic is the fact that for the last few days, I have noticed that after the arrest of Pori Moni only on the basis of allegations, the Film Artists’ Association Bangladesh (Cholochitro Shilpi Samity) has hastily held a press conference and suspended her membership instead of extending any hand of cooperation towards her at the crucial moment”.
“This behavior of the association is really very mysterious. Many conscientious senior-junior artists and cultural activists have regrets about the issue. This is inhumane treatment of the organization against her. The question remains, in whose interest is the current Film Artists Association?”
“In the past, several senior artists have been arrested on even more heinous charges. But the then artist association did not suspend the membership of the accused. Rather it was on the side, even protested down the street. But these behaviors of the present artist association are controversial. Once again, it was understood that this artist association could not unite everyone, but separated them. It has ruined the work environment in the industry by creating divisions. May be that’s why the film industry is in this predicament today”, Shakib khan expressed.
He also wrote that those who misled Pori Moni should also be brought under trial. “Pori Moni has been in more than 30 movies, and has several more in her hands,” says Shakib Khan. “On the contrary, those who are leading luxurious lives misusing the label of an “artiste” year after year without working in a single film, why don’t their source of income be unmasked?”
“As a co-artist, I hope that the law will maintain its individuality in the case of Pori Moni and she will learn from her mistakes. I sincerely hope this will help her make the right decision in the future,“ Shakib Khan concluded the statement on Pori Moni’s situation with high hopes.
