Sylhet was originally a part of India under British Rule. After the end of British Rule win 1947 Sylhet became a part of Pakistan and later Bangladesh. Sylhet came under East Pakistan (Now Bangladesh) after a criticized referendum. As it has Muslim Majority most voted to be a part of East Pakistan.
