Who did Bangladesh get its independence from?
Pakistan. Prior to 1971, Pakistan consisted of two separate regions. The part now known simply as Pakistan was called West Pakistan while the area now called Bangladesh was East Pakistan. The two pieces were separated physically, economically, and to a large extent culturally. Simmering discontent led to a popular uprising. The region declared its independence on March 26, 1971; the Bangladesh War of Independence lasted until December 16 of that year when the government of Pakistan formally signed an instrument of surrender.
It is located between southeastern India and Myanmar. Most of the country is in a pocket surrounded by India. It was formerly known as East Pakistan, part of historic Bengal that was established as an area of Islamic majority by the 1947 partition of India. It achieved its independence from Pakist…an with support from India in 1971. According to the constitution of Bangladesh, the main religion is Islam. (MORE)
Bangladesh (The Peoples Republic of Bangladesh) was once known as East Pakistan, which was a region controlled by (and politically and economically bullied by) West Pakistan. The name "Bangladesh" means "Country of Bengal" in the official Bengali language. Together with the Indian state of West Ben…gal, it makes up the ethno-linguistic region of Bengal. Bangladesh has a long history spanning thousands of years. A land replete with history, it finally achieved independence in the year 1971 after a protracted 9-month war (the Bangladesh Liberation War). After many years of exploitation, both politically and economically, the Bengali national sentiments led to the massive victory of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in the Pakistan National Elections of 1970. The ruling oligarchs in West Pakistan balked at having to give up the reigns of power to East Pakistanis. This led to armed resistance in which nationalists were supported by India, eventully leading to the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. (December 3 - 16, 1971). Although the independence of Bangladesh had been formally declared on March 26, 1971, the war actually established this as a political fact. More than 90,000 Pakistani POW's were repatriated to West Pakistan. Geography Bangladesh is bordered by India on all sides except for a small border with Burma (Myanmar) to the far southeast and by the Bay of Bengal to the south. The borders of present-day Bangladesh were established with the partition of Bengal and India in 1947, when the region became the eastern wing of the newly-formed Pakistan. However, it was separated from the western wing by 1,600 kilometres (1,000 mi) as the two Pakistans were on opposite sides of India. Geographically the country straddles the fertile Ganges-Brahmaputra Delta and is subject to annual monsoon floods and cyclones History of the State Political and linguistic discrimination as well as economic neglect led to popular agitations against West Pakistan, which led to the war for independence in 1971 and the establishment of Bangladesh, with the help of India. However, the new state had to endure famines, natural disasters and widespread poverty, as well as political turmoil and military coups. The restoration of democracy in 1991 has been followed by relative stability and economic progress. However, political rule has been suspended under emergency law since January 11, 2007. Bangladesh is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, SAARC, BIMSTEC, the OIC, and the D-8. As the World Bank notes in its July 2005 Country Brief, the country has made significant progress in human development in the areas of literacy, gender parity in schooling and reduction of population growth.However, Bangladesh continues to face a number of major challenges, including widespread political and bureaucratic corruption, and discrimination against women and religious and ethnic minorities.

People who are independent politically are those who do not want to belong to just one political party. They vote based on the issues, and they may vote for Republicans or they may vote for Democrats. They like the freedom of choosing the candidate based on his or her views, rather than just arbitra…rily voting for one political party all the time. (MORE)
I didn't get my independence from anybody. Is this really the question you wanted to ask?
No. Bangladesh is an Asian country, formerly East Pakistan, that is almost completely surrounded by eastern India near Myanmar (Burma).
Flooding in Bangladesh The severe flooding in Bangladesh started in 2007. It was formed by the Ghaghat River. As a result, the floods have caused lots of poverty, as people in Bangladesh have had to be living in flooded water so there weren't many places to grow crops. The water is also contaminated…, containing diseases, which do have a cure, although many people are killed from it. The floods also had to force people out of their homes, and as a result, they have lost many of their belongings. flooding is common in Bangladesh because around 80% of the country is only 1m above sea level. Most people in Bangladesh, live on flat land. Well there has been many floodings in Bangladesh and at school im learning about 2004 Bangladesh flood and i have found out that the reason it has had many floods is because people are chopping trees down so no water can be soaked up by roots and leaves and that they are also making hills, mountains ect flat so that they can build on top with houses and flats ect and can cause majour flooding i hope i have given u a couple of ideas about it (MORE)

A voter who is described as an "Independent" does not want to affiliate with any one political party. He or she votes for the best candidate, rather than always voting for Democrats or always voting for Republicans. A senator or representative who is described as an Independent is similar in the fac…t that they do not want to always follow one party, so they don't officially declare themselves as either a Democrat or a Republican, and they vote with the party they agree with most, depending on the issue.

Main article: History of Bangladesh See also: History of Bengal . Lord Clive meeting with Mir Jafar after the Battle of Plassey.. Remnants of civilization in the greater Bengal region date back four thousand years,  when the region was settled by Dravidian, Tibeto-Burman, and Austro-Asiati…c peoples. The exact origin of the word "Bangla" or "Bengal" is unknown, though it is believed to be derived from Bang , the Dravidian-speaking tribe that settled in the area around the year 1000 BC.  After the arrival of Indo-Aryans, the kingdom of Gangaridai was formed from at least the seventh century BC, which later united with Bihar under the Magadha and Maurya Empires. Bengal was later part of the Gupta Empire from the third to the sixth centuries CE. Following its collapse, a dynamic Bengali named Shashanka founded an impressive yet short-lived kingdom. Shashanka is considered the first independent king in the history of Bangladesh. After a period of anarchy, the Buddhist Pala dynasty ruled the region for four hundred years, followed by a shorter reign of the Hindu Sena dynasty. Islam was introduced to Bengal in the twelfth century by Sufi missionaries, and subsequent Muslim conquests helped spread Islam throughout the region.  Bakhtiar Khilji, a Turkish general, defeated Lakshman Sen of the Sena dynasty and conquered large parts of Bengal. The region was ruled by dynasties of Sultans and feudal lords for the next few hundred years. By the 16th century, the Mughal Empire controlled Bengal, and Dhaka became an important provincial centre of Mughal administration. European traders arrived late in the 15th century, and their influence grew until the British East India Company gained control of Bengal following the Battle of Plassey in 1757.  The bloody rebellion of 1857, known as the Sepoy Mutiny, resulted in transfer of authority to the crown, with a British viceroy running the administration.  During colonial rule, famine racked the Indian subcontinent many times, including the Great Bengal famine of 1943 that claimed 3 million lives.  Between 1905 and 1911, an abortive attempt was made to divide the province of Bengal into two zones, with Dhaka being the capital of the eastern zone.  When India was partitioned in 1947, Bengal was partitioned along religious lines, with the western part going to India and the eastern part joining Pakistan as a province called East Bengal (later renamed East Pakistan), with its capital at Dhaka.  The Shaheed Minar , which commemorates the Language Movement, is a well known landmark in Bangladesh.. In 1950, land reform was accomplished in East Bengal with the abolishment of the feudal zamindari system.  However, despite the economic and demographic weight of the east, Pakistan's government and military were largely dominated by the upper classes from the west. The Bengali Language Movement of 1952 was the first sign of friction between the two wings of Pakistan.  Dissatisfaction with the central government over economic and cultural issues continued to rise through the next decade, during which the Awami League emerged as the political voice of the Bengali-speaking population. It agitated for autonomy in the 1960s, and in 1966, its president Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was jailed; he was released in 1969 after an unprecedented popular uprising. In 1970, a massive cyclone devastated the coast of East Pakistan, and the central government responded poorly. The Bengali population's anger was compounded when Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, whose Awami League won a majority in Parliament in the 1970 elections,  was blocked from taking office. After staging compromise talks with Mujib, President Yahya Khan arrested him on the early hours of March 26, 1971, and launched Operation Searchlight,  a sustained military assault on East Pakistan. Yahya's methods were extremely bloody, and the violence of the war resulted in many civilian deaths .  Chief targets included intellectuals and Hindus, and about ten million refugees fled to neighbouring India (LaPorte,  p. 103). Estimates of those massacred throughout the war range from three hundred thousand to 3 million.  Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, founder of Bangladesh.. Most of the Awami League leaders fled and set up a government-in-exile in Calcutta, India. The Bangladesh Liberation War lasted for nine months. The guerrilla Mukti Bahini and Bengali regulars eventually received support from the Indian Armed Forces in December 1971. The Indian army, under the command of Lt. General J.S. Aurora, achieved a decisive victory over Pakistan on December 16, 1971, taking over 90,000 prisoners of war  in the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. After its independence, Bangladesh became a parliamentary democracy, with Mujib as the Prime Minister. In the 1973 parliamentary elections, the Awami League gained an absolute majority. A nationwide famine occurred during 1973 and 1974,  and in early 1975, Mujib initiated a one-party socialist rule with his newly formed BAKSAL. On August 15, 1975, Mujib and his family were assassinated by mid-level military officers.  A series of bloody coups and counter-coups in the following three months culminated in the ascent to power of General Ziaur Rahman, who reinstated multi-party politics and founded the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP). Zia's rule ended when he was assassinated in 1981 by elements of the military.  Bangladesh's next major ruler was General Hossain Mohammad Ershad, who gained power in a bloodless coup in 1982 and ruled until 1990, when he was forced to resign under western donor pressure in a major shift in international policy after the end of communism when anti-communist dictators were no longer felt necessary. Since then, Bangladesh has reverted to a parliamentary democracy. Zia's widow, Khaleda Zia, led the Bangladesh Nationalist Party to parliamentary victory at the general election in 1991 and became the first female Prime Minister in Bangladesh's history. However, the Awami League, headed by Sheikh Hasina, one of Mujib's surviving daughters, clinched power at the next election in 1996 but lost to the Bangladesh Nationalist Party again in 2001. These two female ex-prime ministers are now in imprisonment in a sub-jail due to their suspected attachment with corruption. In January 11, 2007, following widespread violence, a caretaker government was appointed to administer the next general election. The country had suffered from extensive corruption,  disorder and political violence. The new caretaker government has made it a priority to root out corruption from all levels of government. To this end, many notable politicians and officials, along with large numbers of lesser officials and party members, have been arrested on corruption charges. The caretaker government claims to be paving the way for free and fair elections to be held before the end of 2008. (MORE)
