Bangladesh Background Information

Bangladesh is one of the world’s most densley-populated countries. With a population of 162 million, they are packed into every nook and cranny. Since Bangladesh is so densley-populated, a lot of areas are jam packed with people. But the most populated are any rural areas. 27% of their population live in those rural

areas, while 14.4 million (8.7%) live in the capitol Dhaka. Dhaka is the biggest city that Bangladesh has. But Chittagong comes in a close second for being a major city. Chittagong has a much lower population of 2.6 million people. Chittagong has a lot of sacred and religious sights like the Chandanpura Mosque. The Mosque is one of the most famous landmarks of Chittagong. They use this Mosque to practice their religion, Islam and Hinduism. Bangladesh only has one major language at the moment. They speak Bengali, which was evolved from the Magadhi Prakrit, Pali, and Sanskrit languages. Bangladesh used to have a lot of poverty. But in recent years, Bangladesh has reduced population growth and improved their health and education. Currently the life expectancy is 69 years for men and 70 for women. Bangladesh uses a lot of energy, 53.65 billion kWh every year. But fortunately for them, they produce their own energy, and don’t use other countries energy. We would never have Bangladesh if it wasn’t for the Pakistan war. In 1971 Bangladesh came to be after the two parts of Pakistan split. So a thanks is given to Pakistan for creating a beautiful Bangladesh.
