Four other Bangladeshi world records

On December 12, it was announced that a new album called Amader 71, featuring 71 different Bangladeshi bands performing songs that uphold the spirit of the Liberation War, broke the world record for the most number of artists on a single album.

Mak Yuree, a Bangladeshi martial artist and expert in more than 40 fighting styles, holds the world record for breaking the largest number of wooden baseball bats with a single shin-kick.

The record currently stands at three.

According to scientific research, Yuree’s shin bones have become unusually dense, as a reaction to the stress he has put them through.

He has also a keen gamer, having completed over 300 video games in his short life.

Singer Momtaz Begum holds the record for the largest number of published albums, currently she has released over 700. She is also a member of the Bangladesh parliament.

After initially financing her own releases, she has now achieved worldwide fame, sometimes recording two albums in a single day.

Among her other achievements, Momtaz has provided funding for an eye hospital in her village of Joymontop.
