According to social media sources, photojournalist Jibon Ahmed may also have lost his job.
A yet another example of moral policing surfaced in Bangladesh after a photo of a couple kissing in the rain went viral, provoking harsh reactions and even violence.
Despite positive several reactions, Ahmed and his image were soon slammed by the self-proclaimed social media moral police for spreading obscenity.
দিন দিন প্রেমিক প্রমিকারা সাহসী হয়ে যাচ্ছে! আগে হত চিপাচাপায়! এখন হয় প্রকাশ্যে! তবে সেই দিন বেশি দূরে নয় যেদিন তারা প্রকাশ্যে জৈবিক কাজ সম্পন্ন করবেন!#Kissing#Open_kissing_in_tsc#TSC#dhakauniversity pic.twitter.com/uXZzFkBFJP— Tariqul Islam (@tariqul_du) July 23, 2018
Many criticized the image claiming it encouraged harassment of women and rape culture and that it would lead women to unnaturally explore their sexuality and thus leave home.
The photographer also came under attack for the recent image after several people raised questions on the matter of consent, claiming that the image amounted to a breach in the couple's privacy.
Ahmed remained unavailable for comment.
