Bangladesh is a unitary, independent and sovereign republic to be known as ‘People’s Republic of Bangladesh’. The inhabitants citizens of Bangladesh are Bangalees with small number of tribal and ethnic minorities and the citizens are known as ‘Bangladeshis’. Bangla is the main and national language as well with sporadic use of tribal languages in CHT areas. All peoples of Bangladesh are well-known with English as it was a former colony of the British. Bangladesh became independent from Pakistan in 1971 and it is comprised of the total territories of East Pakistan.
Historically, Bangladesh has around 5000 years old civilization that gradually developed from Aryans, Romans, Persians, Indus, Nomads, Himalayans, Turks, Arabs, Afghans, Mongolians, Arakanians and Tibetans. Around 90% population of Bangladesh is now Sunni Muslim and the rest are Hindus, Buddhists, Christians, Ethnic minorities or others. ‘Rice’ is the main ‘food habit’ with many local, regional and other international food items are available. Bangladesh is self-dependent in producing basic food-items as it has a huge arable land. Around 1 crore people of the country are now working in many countries as skilled or unskilled workers with a huge number living with permanent residence status. The garment sector employs around 50 lac workers of which 90% are woman. The main sources of income is foreign remittance, garment export, outsourcing, leather-goods, small, medium and heavy industries production on cement, bicycle, leather goods, shipbuilding etc,. The ‘Human Development Index (HDI)’, and ‘Gender Gap Index (GGI)’ and fulfillment of its commitment towards ‘Millennium Development Goal (MDG)’ show steady but sustainable economic growth. However, the situation of political instability, corruption, mismanagement of resources, access to justice and rule of law is not yet praiseworthy. The influence of India and interference of western countries in government activities can be found everywhere. The country is still struggling to ensure economic emancipation, democracy, social justice and political stability.
