"The increasing Islamic terrorism seen in Bangladesh is rarely covered via international news and has only recently been recognized by international security analysts. Bangladesh is a small country in South Asia about the same size as Iowa. It is almost completely bordered by India. It also shares a small border with Myanmar on the southeast and the Bay of Bengal on the south. "Bangladesh" literally translates to "Country of the Bengal". The long name is the "People's Republic of Bangladesh" (Central Intelligence Agency, 2011). It will be referred to as Bangladesh through the extent of the analysis. Bangladesh broke away from Pakistan in 1971 because of the issue of Bengali nationalism promoting tolerance and coexistence among religions and ethnicities (Khan 2016). Bangladesh has the fourth-largest Muslim population in the world (NJOHSP 2016). This ideal of tolerance has not been welcomed by all, Islamic extremist terrorist organizations have fought against it. The long standing FTOs in Bangladesh include the JMB and the HUJI-B. These terrorist organizations are now getting stronger as they receive support from transnational terrorist organizations like IS and AQIS. In the past, both the JMB and the HUJI-B were believed to have ties with Al Qaeda (AQ). Currently the JMB is aligning with the Daesh (NJOHSP 2016). There are some reports that the HUJI-B is still linked to AQ through their latest organization, the AQIS (Vaughn 2016). The Bangladeshi counter-terrorism operations have shown recent success. Continued national and international counter terrorism operations will be required to resist the spread of the AQ and the Daesh in Bangladesh…."

An important fact not mentioned in the analysis is that almost all "Indian" restaurants in the UK are run (and staffed) by Bangladeshis.
