I a not sure of that. I have observed that Bangladesh pitches are typically slower than Indian ones. Moreover, Dharmasala has smaller ground than most of Bangladesh stadiums.

I am not sure why Bangladesh supporters are worried. I would have been worried if it was played on a bowler friendly pitch. Dharmasala being a batsman friendly pitch, should help batsman to pile up runs while bowlers should still doing good and disciplined. The Associate world doesn't have bowlers such as Taskin and Mustafiz. Things that could upset the team are - 1) Pressure and 2) Dew. But away from home, there will always be some challenge, you can't ignore it.
