Bangladesh was part of the State of Bengal until Muslim East Bengal was created in 1905. It was separated from Hindu West Bengal and reunited in 1911. It was partitioned again in 1947 when West Bengal remained in India and East Bengal formed East Pakistan. A rebellion in 1971 led to independence as the People's Republic of Bangladesh. Postage stamps have been issued since 1971
