comment India airports post-immigration xray check purpose?
Adding to the answer by @jpatokal, i also want to add an point. OP's question is about arriving finishing the travel. If someone is to pose security threat by carrying arms, explosives, or whatever, he would do it while on the plane, not (usually) on the destination. That's the reason of reluctance about the person crossing the arch-metal-detector while making it beeping. So, now the subject of interest is his/her luggage, not him.

comment Is it possible to bring electronics as gift from US to Bangladesh?
@JoErNanO in context of Bangladesh, it is a case of "you are thinking too much". i can't talk much about around the world. But, in context of Bangladesh, "smuggling" means bringing something legal in bulk, e.g. more than 5 piece of same stuff; and, bringing in something illegal e.g. narcotics, weapons etc. in any amount. And, yes, bringing in lot of electronic gifts is a very common scenario in Bangladesh airports.

comment Is an IDP required to drive on an American license in Bangladesh?
Besides legality, if you are not used to drive in any developing country (& China), just don't think about it. You will definitely run into big mess.

comment What is the LEAST visited country by tourists?
due to religious constrains, only the city of Mecca and Medina is restricted to non-Muslims. Other than that, no issue. but yes, i can't say exact official procedure though.

comment Are there any standard clothing restrictions when visiting mosques?
I would like to add a relevant fact with this good answer. rather than religious identity, entrance to mosques mainly depends on the "taharah (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taharah )" of the person in question. for example, muslim women (while on period) & men when they in need of mandatory shower are strictly prohibited to enter any mosque. hence, for men, a good shower is enough, whereas for women the fact will vary wildly depending on the location (while from scholar POV, well-showered and not-on-period is well enough).
