Japan and Bangladesh: A Comparison
By: Sehrish and Malika
Bangladesh is a country that earned its independance on 1971, so it's a relatively new country. However, people have been living there since the Vedic Period, (1750-500 BCE) when Hinduism was founded. Bangladesh was first ruled by tribes until it got to the late Middle Ages where it was ruled by the Turkish. It was also under the rule of India, Britain, and Pakistan. The people in the Bengal Area were not happy with how they were treated especially when the Pakistani Government told them that they could not speak their language. That engaged one of the most famous wars in Bangladeshi history- The Bangladesh Liberation War. Bangladesh won and declared their independance on March 26th, 1971. Some other wars that Bangladesh was involved in were the Indian-Bangladesh Border Conflict, the Gulf War, and World War 1 and 2. Now, Bangladesh is a part of the United Nations, and is one of the world's largest garments producers. It is known for a lot of the sweatshops and disasters it faces every year.
