The Prime Minister,

look into the charges leveled by Mr. Fazlul Hug and decide the matter on its own
merit keeping in view the best interest of our country.

Enc: Copy of letter
This is to put a serious matter, in my belief a matter of great National Importance,
before your honor regarding a documentary film directed by Zahir Raihan, which we
have viewed to-day in a private show in Calcutta.
This documentary is being financed by Eastern India Motion Picture Association
and being produced by Bangladesh Chala-Chitra Silpi O Kalakushali Samity in
association with Bangladesh Liberation Council of Intelligential. This would be sold
to India Government to show it in India and other countries.
The film start with a photo of V. I. Lenin and with his wordings shows nothing
but little of refugees in India and a little part of our liberation Army Training Camp.
But the serious setback is, in my opinion, that there is not a single shot or word about
our beloved leader Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman or Awami League or, the
I believe if this film is shown in India or abroad, the viewers shall have the belief
that our liberation is being guided by something else and not the points we believe in.
If the film has been made by any Indian Director, we shall reserve our comments,
but when it is made by a Director of Bangladesh we cannot sit idle.
I, personally, protest against this film and I request you to immediate action to
stop this film before it is shown to the public through the Indian Government.
If it is not done, I alone, am ready to start a movement.
With deepest regards,
Sd/ -Fazlul Huq
Film Producer-Director of Bangladesh
