The history of Bangladesh has been one of extremes, of turmoil and peace, prosperity and destitution. It has thrived under the glow of cultural splendour and suffered under the ravages of war. The earliest mention of Bangladesh is found in the Hindu epic, the Mahabharata (the story of Great Battle, 9th century).

 

Evidence also suggests that there was a strong Mongoloid presence as well.  Soon after, in the 5th and 6th centuries came the Aryans from Central Asia and the Dravidians from Western India. Then came the Guptas, Palas, Senas, who were Buddhist and Hindus.

 

From the 13th century, the flood of Muslim invaders and the tide of Islam swamped the Buddhist and Hindus untold 8th century. Sometimes there were independent rulers like the Hussain Shahi and Ilyas Shahi dynasties while at other times they ruled on behalf of the imperial seat of Delhi. From the 15th century the Europeans, namely Portuguese, Dutch, French and British traders exerted an economic influence over the region. British political rule over the region began in 1757 when the last Muslim ruler of Bengal was defeated at Palassey.

 

In 1947 British India was partitioned into India and Pakistan. Present Bangladesh became the Eastern Wing of Pakistan. The movement for autonomy for East Pakistan started within a couple of years because of language and cultural difference and economic disparity between the two wings. The seeds of independence were sown through the Language Movement of 1952 to recognize Bangla as a state language. Ultimately East Pakistan emerged as the sovereign and independent state of Bangladesh in 1971 after a nine month long war (starting on 26 March 1971).
