Beardie Wearing Taqiyah

Cheerful old man

His beard was white and long

Shot in the city of Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The man wearing a gorgeous gray beard was a street vendor. He also wore a cap called Taqiyah. It was said that Muhammad, the beginner of Islam, used to keep his head covered. And it was common to wear such cap here.

His appearance was a typical Islamic. The major religion in this country was Islam. When I focused on him, he started to laugh and many forehead wrinkles emerged. There were no differences based on religion when people smiled.
