Bangladesh army tortures indigenous Chakma Buddhists in Longadu

On 27 Jan. 1989, Bangladesh army of 14 EBR from Karalyachari Army Camp led by Major Atiyar raided an indigenous Buddhist village Dane Atarakchara in Longadu, Rangamati district.

Bangladesh army arrested 4 indigenous Chakma Buddhists and inhumanly tortured them. The victims are:

  1. Mr. Deba Ranjan Chakma, 23 yrs, son of Mr. Attyaram Chakma, of Dane Atarakchara, Longadu.
  2. Mr. Prabhat Chakma, 40 yrs, son of Mr. Prabin Chandra, address as above.
  3. Mr. Shanti Ranjan Chakma, 29 yrs, son of Mr. Hriday Chandra Chakma, address as above.
  4. Mr. Murati Mohan Chakma, 25 yrs, son of Mr. Ratna Kumar 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.
