Bangladesh Rifles tortures 4 indigenous Chakma Buddhists in Khagrachari

On 2 Feb. 1989, Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) from Dhudukchara BDR Camp arrested 4 indigenous Chakma Buddhists at Logang in Panchari, Khagrachari district.

Bangladesh Rifles took the 4 indigenous Chakma Buddhists to 203 Brigade HQ of Bangladesh army at Khagrachari and inhumanly tortured them. The victims are:

  1. Mr. Fanindra Lal Chakma, 43 yrs, son of Late Ramani Chakma, of Kamini Ranjan Para, Panchari.
  2. Mr. Anupam Chakma, 37 yrs, son of Late Rebati Ranjan Chakma, address as above
  3. Mr. Dibya Kumar Chakma, 35 yrs, son of Mr. Matulya Karbari of Matulya Karbari Para, Panchari.
  4. Mr. Rajani Kanta Chakma, 45 yrs, son of Mr. Chinta Haran 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.
