This time, it was Muslim pioneers who assumed the leading role. Establishing Dhaka as the provincial Mughal (Mughal Empire) capital of the region, in the early 17th century the Barisal region (known as Sarkar Bakla to Mughals) was more accessible to businessmen and developers than at any previous time. However, piracy in this region along the coasts and rivers of southeastern Bengal by Arakanese and renegade Portuguese (Portugal) seamen inhibited any sustained attempts by Mughal governors to push into the Barisal forests. Numerous rivers and canals force the inhabitants to use boats as the main medium of transportation.

Dhaka

'''Dhaka''' (

Under Mughal rule (Mughal Empire) in the 17th century, the city was known as Jahangir Nagar (named after the erstwhile emperor Jahangir). It was the capital of Mughal Bengal and a centre of the worldwide muslin trade. The modern city, however, developed chiefly under British rule (British Raj) in the 19th-century. Between 1905 and 1911, it served as the capital of the short lived British province of Eastern Bengal and Assam. With the Partition of British India in 1947, the city became the administrative capital of East Pakistan, and in 1971, the capital of an independent Bangladesh.

Dhaka plays a central role in the Bangladeshi economy, alongside the port city of Chittagong. The city constitutes the political, cultural and scientific heart of the nation. It is home to acclaimed national landmarks, including the Jatiyo Sangshad Bhaban, the University of Dhaka, the Liberation War Museum, the National Museum (Bangladesh National Museum), the Shaheed Minar (Shaheed Minar, Dhaka) and the Lalbagh Fort. http: www.huffingtonpost.com anushay-hossain branding-bangladesh-india_b_4671353.html

In recent decades, Dhaka has been experiencing an influx of people from across the nation, making it one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the world. The city has been attracting greater volumes of foreign investment and trade; and has been witnessing the modernization of transport and communications, with the Dhaka Metro and the Dhaka Elevated Expressway under construction. However, the city continues to face substantial challenges of congestion, poverty, overpopulation and pollution.
