POPULATION PROBLEM OF BANGLAADESH Bangladesh became independent only a few years ago. It is a small country as well as a developing country. It faced with many problems. Now it is a national problem.
Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. Her population is increasing day by day. It has become a serious problem for us. This problem is now out of control.
Though Bangladesh is a small country, it has huge population. The land area of Bangladesh is less than her vast population. About 850 people live per square kilometer here. For this reason, Bangladesh in considered as over populated country.
The population in our country is increasing in an alarming rate. There are many reasons of increasing population in our country. The main reasons of increasing population are ignorance, superstitions, early marriage and lack of female education.
Most of the people of our country are illiterate. They do not know about the problems of over population. Because of being illiterate, they are not aware of family planning.
Besides, religious superstitions obstruct our people in taking family planning. Early marriage is also responsible for increasing population.
Over population creates many problems. Overpopulation growth has many negative effects on our life and existence. It hampers our economic progress. It also pollutes our environment.
Though population is an asset of a country, it has now become a burden for our country. It creates the problem of food, shelter, health, nutrition, unemployment, treatment, communication etc.
Over population obstructs to our national development. The country will fall in acute poverty and people will lead very unhappy and miserable life in near future if it is not controlled. It should inspire our people to adopt family planning. Our womenfolk should be educated.
However, we must come forward to control this over growth of population. We should take some measures to control it. People should make aware of adopting family planning.
Our people must be educated. If they are educated, they will surely try to keep their families planned. Mass media like radio, television and newspaper can play a vital role in this regard.
For this, all the people of Bangladesh and the government should join hands to control this population growth at any cost.
