Bangladesh is country surrounded by India in Asia that has a population of about 160 million people, making it the 8th most populated country in the world. Most of the people live in urban areas, with the most amount of people living in the city of Dhaka. There are few people living in rural areas because of how thickly settled it is. Dhaka is also Bangladesh’s capital, housing around 8.9 million people. The second biggest city in Bangladesh is Chittagong, it is the main port for the country, and their second most important city. Many fun things to do there are visit the busy sea beach and lake, visit the ethnological museum, or visit the Chittagong war cemetery. The national language that almost everyone speaks is Bengali, however there are some minority groups who speak Tibeto-Burman languages. Bangladesh has a big reliance on agriculture, which has lead to a lot of unemployment and bad standards of living, however they are slowly starting to implement more industrialization to help with this. For religion, Hinduism used to be the main religion of Bangladesh, but now it is the second main religion with Islam being the biggest,and the country’s official religion. How this overturn happened was Muslims starting coming into the country during the 13th century, and started to rapidly increase in the population, and becoming slightly bigger than the practicing Hindus. Moving on to important dates for the country, all the way back from the 3rd century, there were three different dynasties of Buddhism Hindu and Muslim, until around 1700. During this period the whole countries empire was weakened and the British saw an opportunity to take over, and they did so until 1947. During this year there were major elections and the Muslims got back into control, however thirty years later Pakistanis took control and it has been to them ever since.
