Bangladeshi Culture

Other Considerations

  • Drawing parallels between Bangladesh and other countries on the Indian subcontinent such as India or Pakistan may offend your Bangladeshi counterpart. Bangladeshis often get these comparisons, yet take great pride in being culturally and politically distinct from both India and Pakistan.
  • Many Bangladeshis enjoy watching and/or playing cricket. This is usually a good point of conversation and a way to bond with your Bangladeshi counterpart.
  • Although some Muslim Bangladeshi women wear a hijab, the law does not officially force this practice upon them. For many women, it is a matter of personal choice and to preserve family honour.
