Devotees overcrowd trains for the Biswa Ijtema

Bangladeshi Muslim devotees go en masse to pray at the World Congregation of Muslims, or Biswa Ijtema in the outskirts of Dhaka, Bangladesh. In order to catch a train, they overcrowd stations and train cars beyond imagination, climbing on roofs or hanging on any protrusion at their reach. Safety of passengers becomes an obvious issue under these insecure conditions and the rate of accidents is high during commuting.
