Turkey has always had close and warm ties to pakistan. It's irrational to think they'd give it up for a relationship with Bangladesh instead. They can invest in both our countries.

I've seen the link you sent earlier about Dacca on skyscrappercity. Found it to be great and very modern. Bangladesh is doing great. Below is a link about our capital city Islamabad. You will find it interesting.
