Bangladesh army terrorize indigenous Chakma Buddhists in Khagrachari

On 5 Jan. 1989, Bangladesh army of 31 East Bengal Regiment from Kukichara camp led by Capt. Aleem and Lt. Maisuddin raided Baurapara an indigenous Buddhist village in Khagrachari.

Bangladesh army arrested following indigenous people from their houses on false allegation of helping the Shanti Bahini. Bangladesh army took them to Zonal Head Quarter at Khagrachari. Bangladesh army inhumanely tortured them during interrogation. The victims are:

  1. Mr. Kala Choga Chakma (30), son of late Nagendra Lal Chakma of Baurapara, No. 238 Gasban Mouza, Khagrachari.
  2. Mr. Kanak Baran Chakma (35), son of late Nagendra Lal Chakma, address as above.
  3. Mr. Amar Kanti Chakma (25), son of late Zuranby Chakma, address as above.

India was partitioned on the basis of religion in 1947. 98.5% of the CHT population was non-Muslim during the partition. The indigenous people of CHT opted to join either India or Burma. But Muslim League conspired with the Boundary Commission and illegally annexed CHT with East Pakistan in violation of the principle of partition. Successive Bangladesh governments have been sponsoring Muslim settlers from plain land to dilute the indigenous people of CHT.

Bangladesh army's role in CHT is to protect the Muslim settlers and carry out massacre, extra-judicial killing, torture, detention without trial, land grabbing, rape, religious persecution and ethnic cleansing against indigenous Buddhist, Hindu and Animist people in CHT.
