A man was a stall owner. He wore a cap called Taqiyah was plying his trade on the streets of Dhaka. He also sported a fine beard. The combination of Taqiyah and beard made the man look like a typical Muslim. Bangladesh is a Muslim-majority country, so it is not unusual to see a man wearing a Taqiyah when walking around the city. I saw them everywhere, and even children wear Taqiyah.

When you walk around in Japan dressed like this, you can't help but stand out, I guess. However, if you try to blend in with the crowd in Dhaka, you may not be conspicuous if you dress like this, as opposed to Japan. After all, if you want to hide a tree, you should be in the forest.
