Default Ridiculous restrictions at the WC

In a press conference by the Police Commissioner Benazir Ahmed he mentioned various security restrictions. Fine but then:

Meanwhile, the spectators will not be permitted to take video and still cameras, banners or festoons, and also cameraphones into the stadium, Benazir added.

Say what? In what civilized country is this kind if draconian rule in place and why? I am fine with the interdiction of Video cameras but no still photography? A huge part of the stadium experience is being able to bring more than memories home. If this is an example of how things are going to be run, there will be a huge outcry from the paying public. I for one will now be loath to purchase any future tickets. So will most dissappointed spectators from all over the world. Bangladesh can kiss goodbye to being able to host any future mega event like this.

Ridiculous.

I hope this restriction for the opening ceremony is not going to be carried over to the matches too.

Well if it's just for the ceremony then I can understand, because it will be a crap ceremony, and they don't want people remembering it for years to come.

That's just ridiculous. It'll be such a stupid thing to do to restrict cameras.

Best way to make fun of this is to take one of these ▼ and dangle it around their faces, or asking them to help you carry it in.

I know only for the opening but it is setting a bad precedence. Next, they may want to try the same **** at the matches.

so half the stadium was empty during the warmup match as they were checking the ID card of everyone entering the stadium. How long will it take now (going through everyone bags/backpack searching for cellphone, camera etc).

Who has a cell phone without camera nowadays? I don't believe they can enforce the camera phone restriction.

Yeah I think on match day they will declare you can only enter with LG camera less cell phones(official sponsor of ICC).

Boss, just a word of advice from a minnow, don't get in trouble please. Your wife will never let you out of your house again, let alone go abroad.

I know you are excited and everything. And people that live outside of Bangladesh (specially the ones who were born in BD) generally feels very proud, and always wants to do something for the country and fix the mess, but this is NOT the time!

Just saying.

Guys can you please confirm when the ceremony will start and how long it will go on for. I am getting different timetables. I need to decide whether to call in sick in the morning.

this is nothing at least they were allowing cell. In BUET convocation they thought cell and key ring are security threat and instruct us not to bring those.
