Background:

The boundaries of modern Bangladesh were established with the partition of Bengal in August 1947, when British India was separated along religious, linguistic, and cultural lines. The western part of the region became West Bengal, now a state in eastern India, and the eastern part became East Pakistan, as part of the newly formed Dominion of Pakistan.

A pro-democracy movement in East Pakistan that thrived on Bengali nationalism and self-determination led to the Liberation War and eventually the emergence of Bangladesh as a sovereign and independent nation in 1971.

Bangladesh Media Landscape
The emergence of satellite television and the spread of the internet in the last 15 years have changed Bangladesh's media landscape.
Television is the most popular medium. The state-owned BTV has a nationwide terrestrial broadcast, and the private satellite channels and news-based television stations are widely available.
But the media tend to be polarized and aligned with one or the other main political faction. Bangladesh authorities are arbitrarily arresting government critics under the draconian Digital Security Act, stifling civil society, independent media, and human rights activists.

Bangladesh Economy

Bangladesh is one of the world's emerging and fastest-growing economies. The country has cut extreme poverty in half and achieved lower-middle-income status. Life expectancy, literacy rates and per capita food production have increased significantly. Its economy has grown roughly 6% per year since 2005 despite prolonged periods of political instability, poor infrastructure, endemic corruption, insufficient power supplies, and slow implementation of economic reforms. About 39 million people (23%) are still living below the national poverty line.

The economy of Bangladesh is largely dependent on agriculture, especially rice. However, the garment (RMG) sector of Bangladesh has become the largest earner of foreign exchange. RMG is the largest employer of women in Bangladesh. Garment exports, the backbone of Bangladesh's industrial sector, accounted for more than 80% of total exports and surpassed $25 billion in 2015.

History of Bangladesh

The country's early documented history was characterized by the succession of Hindu and Buddhist kingdoms and empires vying for regional dominance. Islam arrived in the 6th-7th centuries CE and gradually became dominant in the region from the early 13th century through the conquests of Bakhtiyar Khalji and the activities of Sunni missionaries such as Shah Jalal.

Rohingya Peoples

The Rohingya are a stateless Muslim minority in Myanmar. Before the displacement crisis, an estimated 1.4 million Rohingya (in Myanmar known as "Bangali") lived in the country.

The latest exodus began on 25 August 2017, when violence broke out in Myanmar's Rakhine State, driving more than 742,000 to seek refuge in neighboring Bangladesh. Most arrived in the first three months of the crisis.

Rohingyas are worried about the situation in Myanmar (2021)
The Rohingya are worried about the ongoing political situation in Myanmar. Although the border situation is normal, there has been a mixed reaction among the Rohingyas sheltered in Ukhia Teknaf. Rohingya leaders claim there are still more than 600,000 Rohingya in Myanmar. There is a frightening atmosphere among the Rohingyas about the seizure of state power by the army there. Therefore, there is a risk that Rohingya repatriation will be delayed in such a situation. [2]
