Bangladesh has one of the world’s largest Muslim-populations in the world. Despite this, apart from the painful memories of the independence war in 1971, many in the community are unaware of the Islamic origins of the country. We explore the early seeds of Islam in Bengal, Muslim rule and the lessons we can learn from the past in the modern-day.
Joining to discuss - Muhammad Mojlum Khan - author of 'The Muslim Heritage of Bengal'.
This episode forms part of Asia Wired’s history series exploring the Muslim heritage of countries in the South and South-East Asia region.
