The liberation war of Bangladesh in 1971 was the outcome of the ‘ethnic-lingual nationalism’ in lieu of ‘religious nationalism’ especially ‘Muslim nationalism’, which provided the base for united Pakistan. On one hand, the role of the Arab world in the historic struggle of Bangladesh is the scar in terms of making a relationship with them. As the second-largest populated Muslim country, whenever Bangladesh has tried to make a good relation with the Arabs, this lesion has peeped in the mind of the Bangalees. On the other hand, the influence of the Arab world in the internal and foreign policy of Bangladesh is notably visible. Now, the relations with the Arab countries are going through a complexity due to mixing some policies and ideologies like secularism, socialism, the policy of look-Middle East and the policy of state religionism. So, the evaluation of the role of Arab countries in the liberation war of Bangladesh deserves an in-depth study in every respect. Many countries, including superpowers, involved in the East Pakistan crisis because it was, indeed, a part of the Cold War (1945-1991).
