After India has lost the 3 match series against Bangladesh and facing high criticism from Indian media, Bangladesh newspaper has now shown disrespect towards the Indian Cricket team. Bangladesh flags were waved relentlessly at the Mirpur Stadium by boisterous fans celebrating as their team outplayed the opposition.
Prothom Alo, a famous Bangladeshi newspaper, in its weekly supplement Rosh Alo bore a cover that features a fake advertisement for a cutter. It shows Bangladeshi cricketer Mustafizur standing with a ‘cutter’, symbolising his famous ‘offcutters’.
The caricature showed Indian players Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, Shikhar Dhawan and Ravichandran Ashwin half-bald holding a banner saying “We’ve used it. You can use it too.”
The exact translation from the billboard is “Tiger Stationery, Made in Bangladesh, Murtafiz Cutter is available in Stadium Market, Mirpur, Dhaka.”
