The Bangladeshi ambassador to the country H.E. Major General Md Ashikuzzaman revealed that he received information that Kuwaiti authorities have arrested 4 Bangladeshis for appearing in a video clip carrying out a reckless and irresponsible act, Al Rai daily reported.

He added in a statement to Al-Rai daily that “the embassy was and is still calling on all its citizens in Kuwait on all occasions to abide by the local laws of the country, since any disgraceful act they do may offend others.”

He stressed that “he will work to deport these four from Kuwait even if they are released by the Kuwaiti authorities, as they deliberately insulted all Bangladeshi workers in Kuwait,” noting that “Kuwaiti-Bangladesh relations are strong and deep and such irresponsible individual behavior will not affect them.”

The Embassy of Bangladesh published a strongly worded circular to its citizens, calling on them to provide information about the 4 citizens who appeared in a video clip that was considered offensive to Kuwait and the Kuwaiti currency.

The circular warned members of the Bangladeshi community that “such reckless and immoral practices may tarnish the image of Bangladesh in the first place before they do anything that may harm Kuwait.”
