Join us on this gripping journey as we follow thousands of Bangladeshi Muslims embarking on the religious pilgrimage to Dhaka. The six-hour journey is a harrowing experience that requires travelers to navigate an overcrowded and scorching hot train. The danger escalates for those who seek space on the roof, where passengers must constantly navigate treacherous bridges and avoid falling to their deaths.
The risks faced by these pilgrims are unimaginable. “If you die, no one cares and you are eaten by the dogs,” one traveler laments. Despite the dangers, the pilgrimage continues to be a vital part of Bangladeshi Muslim culture.
We encourage you to watch our documentary to learn more about this breathtaking journey and those who make it every year.
