According to the Office For National Statistics UK, more than 451,529 Bangladeshi people are living in the United Kingdom (UK). This is a survey data from 2011. So I guess, the population already been almost doubled from the past 9 years as more Bangladeshi people are being interested in migrating to the UK these days.
As their root is Bangladesh, they still love to read Bengali newspapers available in Bangla. Even they speak in Bengali within the Bengali community and whenever it’s possible.
Lots of them find either all Bangla newspapers online (those are directly being published from Bangladesh) or they buy the local UK based Bangla papers.
In today’s post, I am going to enlist some popular and renowned Bangla Newspaper in the UK. Let’s dive in –
BBC Bangla – http://www.bbc.co.uk/bengali/ BBC Bangla is not just famous in the
Bangla Sanglap – http://www.banglasanglap.co.uk/ A very good going online newspaper in Bangla in UK. Covers almost everything happening in Britain and in Bangla community.
