Forty years after independence from Pakistan, many Urdu-speaking migrants from India still remain in refugee camps.

Bangladesh refugee camps

Bangladesh has marked 40 years since proclaiming its independence from Pakistan after a nine-month war.

Up to a million Urdu-speaking Muslims emigrated from India to what was then known as East Pakistan. They were caught up in the fighting – and to this day, many still remain in refugee camps.
