Bangladesh army tortures an indigenous Chakma Buddhist in Khagrachari

On 11 Jan. 1989, Bangladesh army personnel from 31 EBR of Khagrachari Zone encircled the house of an indigenous person who was brought out of his house and subjected him to severe beating and tortures. As a result, the victim has become almost crippled. The victim is:

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.
