The History and Culture of Bangladesh

Until 1947, Bangladesh was known as the province of East Bengal and was part of the UK and India since the 1700s. In 1947, Britain, together with the leading political organizations in India, partitioned the Indian colony into India and Pakistan. The East Bengal Province included Pakistan that was referred to as East Pakistan.

West Pakistan was carved out of the north-western provinces of British India. This division of the territory was an attempt to create a Muslim state in the periphery of Hindu India. Nevertheless, the West and East Pakistan’s wings were more than 1,000 miles apart, creating a cultural gap between the two parts of the country.

Ethnic groups in Pakistan and Indian Muslims who fled India after the partition were very different by language and way of life from the former East Bengal: West Pakistan was more focused on the Middle East and was subjected to the Arab Islamic influence, while East Pakistan was closer to the Far East and fell under the influence of the Hindus, the Buddhists and the British cultural values.

On March, 26, 1972, the East Pakistan was declared an independent nation, and in April Bengalis came into open conflict with the Pakistani army.

The liberation was lasted over the next 10 months. East Pakistan began to be called Bangladesh. The battle with Pakistani forces conducted throughout the territory of the former joint country.

At the beginning of December, 1971, the Indian army entered Bangladesh that at that time was occupied by the Pakistani army, and within ten days Pakistanis left Bangladesh and retreated. On December 16, 1971 Pakistani military surrendered. In January 1972, Mujibur was released from prison and became Prime Minister of Bangladesh. Bangladesh was founded as a democratic, secular, and socialist state.

Culture of Bangladesh for centuries absorbed the very different traditions of the Indian subcontinent and the surrounding regions. Bengal Language originated a long time ago, and the first texts written on it appeared in the 8th century.

The famous UNESCO list includes several cultural sites on the territory of Bangladesh: City of Bagerhat mosques, the main objects of which were built in the 15th century. At that time, in Bangladesh there was a sultanate that was ruled by Nasir al-Din Mahmud Shah; Buddhist vihara or monastery at Paharpur (the construction dates back to 8th century and represents a huge stupa, around which more than 170 cells for monks are located. This is the largest monastery not only in Bangladesh, but also in India and other neighboring countries.
