Child abuse: Bangladesh cricketer shahadat hossain cries ban end

Bangladesh international cricketer, Shahadat Hossain, has cried out on Thursday that his ban to quit the sport be ended.

According to reports, the aggrieved cricketer has since been seeking means to return to full participation in the game after he was convicted of torturing his 11-year-old housemaid.

Shahadat Hossain was suspended by the Bangladeshi Cricket Board (BCB) after he and his wife were arrested on suspicion of torturing their housemaid, Mahfuza Akhter.

The 29 year old has previously denied abusing Mahfuza Akhter Happy but was later found to be guilty of the charge.

Upon conviction, he was sentenced to prison but is now out on bail. The out-of-prison cricketer has apologized for his shortcomings, while holding the mistake to human imperfection.

“I beg forgiveness to the country. To err is human, and I have made a mistake,” he has said in a news conference.

He has also used the news conference as a mercy ground to ask for the favor of the Bangladesh Cricket Board. He has asked to return to return to playing the game he knows to do best which was after he has sown to admitting his flaws on young Miss Happy, his housemaid.

“For the sake of cricket and my livelihood, I want to return to cricket. I appeal to the nation, the Bangladeshi Cricket Board (BCB), to allow me to return to cricket and correct my mistake.”

Miss Happy was found in a street in September 2015 with multiple injuries, including a broken leg and a black eye.

She told police that she had been working for the couple for a year and that they had beaten and tortured her.

Mr Hossain had initially reported her as missing. He later handed himself in to police.

He and his wife, Jasmine Jahan Nritto Shahadat, were jailed before being let out on bail two months later.

If convicted, they could face jail terms of between seven and 14 years, plus a fine.

The charges have been brought under legislation designed to protect women and children from domestic abuse.
