Sylhet has some of the best 5star resorts (Grand Sultan, The Palace, Dusai, etc), not just in BD but South Asia. I haven’t been back since 2012. The resort Grand Syltan is co-owned by my parent’s uncle who is a very wealthy man lives in Sri Mangol. I’d defo be visiting some of the resort next time. Wonder where the players staying? In grand Sylhet hotel near the stadium or elsewhere?

In time. Moulvibazar district near the resorts, can have an International stadium as there’s 5star hotels/resorts available and accommodation no issues. Maybe somewhere between the Palace resort, Habiganj and Grand Sultan Resort/hotel, both which is around an hour away from each from each other, which gives more options for 5star close by accommodations.

How can this thread of Sylhet be without the name of the greatest most loved actor in Bangladesh film/entertainment industry ever produced, The Late Salman Shah.

You’re not a proper Sylhet fan. Mufi. What Injustice, to the legendary actor.

Please do the correction. Add his profile, up next to Hason Raja.

And add also, Shah Abdul karim, his songs are used by many in Desh, such an legend who didn’t get his due as well from the biased Bdeshi media or maybe they lacked enough sense.
Don’t forget to add some Hindu noteable personalities of Sylheti origin. Like Radharaman Dutta, famous lyricist, that song ‘Bhromor Koiyo giya’, so deep, used and sang by many in desh and abroad. Educator Chandra Dev - was a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Dhaka.

Is there even a any competition in BD with Sylhet Stadium? by a country mile most beautiful stadium, with such nice lush green, hilly, tea gardens surrounded the stadium. It’s not like concrete jungle. Plus, there’s a green hill gallery, called the green gallery, with a little grassbank you see SA stadiums have, first in BD, nothing like this available in South Asia not just BD. I don’t know where else is a stadium with a hill with nice direct views of the ground to seat and enjoy the game. It’s an unique thing it’s in South Asian stadium.

A non Sylhet fan has done a very good job. Lot of things I had to Google and find out. I really liked the short history part about Sylhet.

Sometimes make me wonder, I have so much to learn about my birth place.

Another notable figure in cricket from sylhet is Hasibul Hasan Shanto. One of the very few quick bowlers we have had back in 90s. Shanto was born in Barlekha, Moulvibazar, and played an important part in our most successful ICC Trophy in 1997.

Yes, Back in the days, Shanto was as popular as Mash. Had good pace but his line and length was not as good. His batting was a treat to watch.

A pakistani player (zahur elahi??) struck Shanto on the knee with the bat. Shanto's career never gained momentum after that injury. Very sad incident

In ICC trophy 1997, Shanto was quite deadly at times. I would take Hasibul Hossain Shanto over any of the current pacers we have yeah....it's that bad

He was definitely better than Shafiul, Abul, Shahid. Maybe better than Taskin. But Shanto's batting was really good.

Aah..Good old days of Bangladesh cricket. Players like Bulbul, Nannu, Akram, Shanto, Jahangir could put many current players in shame if they had modern day training

Shah Abdul Karim is hugely popular. Not sure what makes you think that he isn't recognized.

Its "bhromor koiyo giya". I wonder if you even understand the meaning of that song

More History On Sylhet - Chronological

Quote:

Early to Medieval History

Historians believe that Sylhet was an expanded commercial center from the ancient period, which explains its original namesake. During this time, Sylhet was probably inhabited by Indo-Aryan Brahmins, though ethnically the population would also have traces of Assamese. It has also been suggested that the Ancient Kingdom of Harikela was situated in modern Sylhet.

In the ancient and early medieval period, Sylhet was ruled primarily by local chieftains as viceroy of the kings of Pragjyotishpur.

Sylhet was certainly known by the rest of India, and is even referred to in the ancient Hindu sacred Tantric text, the Shakti Sangama Tantra, as ‘Silhatta’.

Starting of Muslim Rule in Sylhet

In 1301, Sylhet was conquered by Shamsu’d-Din Firuz, a Bengali enterprising governer

A messianic Muslim saint, Shah Jalal, arrived in Sylhet in 1303 from Mecca via Delhi and Dhaka with the instructions for aiding Sikhander Khan Ghazi in defeating Govinda of Gaur. Shah Jalal was also joined by Shah Paran (nephew) who was also a renowned Sufi saint, in their expedition. After the conquest of Sylhet, Shah Paran established a khanqah at Khadim Nagar in Dakshingarh Pargana, a few kilometers away from Sylhet town, where he started Sufi spiritual practices and activities. He played a significant role in propagating Islam and establishing Muslim rule in the Sylhet region.

Shortly thereafter, Sylhet became a center of Islam in Bengal. In the official documents and historical papers, Sylhet was often referred to as Jalalabad during the era of the Muslim rule.

British Rule
The 17th century started the British rule in the Indian subcontinent. During the period the British East India Company employed Indian lascars which included Sylhetis. In the late 18th century, the British East India Company became interested in Sylhet and saw it as an area of strategic importance in the war against Burma.

Sylethi Migration to UK and serving in World Wars
For the next centuries thousands of young Sylhetis started to serve on British merchant ships, cooking curry for their sailors. The numbers of lascars grew during the wars, some ending up on the docks of London and Liverpool temporary, other however established themselves in the communities and married English women

Referendum to join Bengal/East Pakistan

After the British administrative reorganization of India, Sylhet was eventually incorporated into Assam. It remained a part of Assam for the rest of the era of British rule. In 1947, following a referendum, almost all of erstwhile Sylhet became a part of East Pakistan, barring the Karimganj subdivision which was incorporated into the new Indian state of Assam.

The referundum was held on 3 July 1947, there were a total of 546,815 votes cast on 239 polling stations, a majority of 43.8 per cent voted in favour of being part of East Bengal. The referendum was acknowledged by Article 3 of the India Independence Act of 18 July 1947. In 1971, Sylhet became part of the newly formed independent country of Bangladesh.

I don’t know how true this is..

But when I went to BD some of the elders said the name Sylhet came from Hazrath Shah Jalal?

He was the one that gave that name and later on everyone called it Sylhet?

So you can see how Sylhet was historically part of Assam. But later through a referendum decided to join East Pakistan (which later became Bangladesh)
