Bangladesh prides itself on being the only nation in the world to have fought for its language. Born in 1971 after a short war for independence, it has since quickly grown to a country of over 165 million people. Dhaka, its capital city, is the most densely populated city in the world, and is estimated to be growing by about 10,000 people every week. Bangladesh is a primarily Muslim country, with a large minority of Hindus. Situated on a river delta, the land of Bangladesh is its most precious natural resource.
