There should be many diplomatic maneuvers to not join their block and keep the labour force there. A skilled FM and diplomats should be able to pull this off. I am totally allergic to having to do anything with the Arabs. Absolutely anything and that includes pulling our labourers from there and send somewhere else or employ them at home. They are retards and hypocrites of the highest order.I also have no intention to join any block . But for the sake of argument , if Bangladesh govt will be given a choice ( Let's suppose forcibly) , I am sure they they will choose Saudi Arabia .Simply because Saudi is rich and we have lots of worker there . So if even we forget about shia and sunni , still shall Bangladesh govt choose Iran over Saudi ? I think no , simply for the sake of our remittance! You see Bangladesh was in awkward position when remain neutral to Saudi and Qatar ?
fortunately both are sunni ( now Sunni shia is obvious ) ,and in Bangladesh Saudi and other sunni countries have much more acceptance in commoners level .
We can avoid this situation, when we will have industrialization and we can create more job opportunity , and also can be self dependent , only then we can remain neutral even in hostile situations .
we are too much dependent on remittance alongside garments , and that is our draw back !
