Islam in Bangladesh
Islam is the largest religion of Bangladesh, the Muslim population is approximately 148.6 million, which is the fourth largest Muslim population in the world (after Indonesia, Pakistan and India), constituting 90.4% of the total population as of 2011. Religion has always been a strong part of identity, but this has varied at different times. A survey in late 2003 confirmed that religion is the first choice by a citizen for self-identification; atheism is extremely rare. Bangladesh is a secular state, however the United Nations has recognised the country as moderate Muslim democratic country.Islam was introduced to Bengal during the Rashidun Caliphate in the 7th century, mainly by the arrivals of Arab and Persian missionaries and merchants, and later conquests of the region by North Indian Muslim sultanates.
