Bangladesh Association Glasgow (BAG) was established in 1971 during the war of independence of Bangladesh. For decades, Bangladeshis in Glasgow have been participating in activities involving not only the Bangla speaking community but the greater Scottish community.

There are various different organisations amongst Bangladeshis in Glasgow working together to represent both Bangladeshi and Scottish culture. Dawatul Islam is a religious organisation providing the Islamic religious activities in Glasgow. Bangla Biddya Niketon is another Bangla language school in South Glasgow. BAG aims to foster cooperation and unity among these organisations to enhance social cohesion and build connections with the mainstream Scottish society.
