The video has circulated online, shocking many around the world whose idea of ​​a packed train is a far cry from what was seen in the South Asian country.

‘So if the train has a terrible accident, how many people are injured? Like 5,000? one person commented on Reddit.

“I can’t imagine living in that environment,” added a second person.

Another said: ‘I can’t understand how this is even a thing.’

One noted that this is like ‘everyday stuff’ for those who come to Dhaka (the capital city) for work.

“Any holiday like Eid basically means all the main roads in Dhaka are blocked. You can’t even go anywhere,’ they said.

Eid al-Fitr is the first of two official holidays celebrated in Islam.

There was no free place to sit on the train, and travelers found themselves clinging to the front, sides, and roof of the carriages.

Muslims around the world celebrate the religious holiday because it marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan from sunrise to sunset.

The images contrast sharply with what is seen on Australia’s rail network system, where passenger safety is the number one priority.

Australian passengers are encouraged to remain seated when the train is in motion, and those unable to sit are told to hold on to handles hanging from the ceiling.

If a car is full, passengers waiting to board will have to wait for the next train to avoid overcrowding.
