Life in both urban and rural Bangladesh is a mix of the modern and the traditional. Superstitions are widespread and may differ between north and south or between districts. Many old customs and beliefs have been passed down through the generations by their widespread practice in everyday life.  

Bangladesh is one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. About 80% of the population are Muslims. It has absorbed local customs that do not exist in other Islamic countries, making it unique. Historically Bangladeshi Muslims have coexisted in harmony with many other faiths, and the Islam of Bangladesh is tolerant and inclusive.
