With a population of 120 million people packed into a land mass no bigger then a small US State, Bangladesh has the distinction of being one of the most densely populated countries of the world.
Bangladesh was under Muslim rule for five and a half centuries followed by another two hundred years of British rule. In 1947 it gained independence from Britain along with the rest of India, and formed the eastern wing of Pakistan. But soon the people found that the so-called independence, earned on the basis of the ' two-nation theory ', was an illusion. Discontent and the spirit of rebellion grew. Finally, in December 1971, after a Liberation War of nine months, Bangladesh became a sovereign state.
Just few days before the final victory many Bangladeshi intellectuals and educators were picked up by the Pakistani army and collaborators. Nobody knew what happened to them until their bodies were discovered just outside the city a few days later.
With assistance from the developed world in the form of education, technology, small loan programs and medical assistance, Bangladesh looks toward a brighter future. FINITO
