On 12 Feb. 1989, Bangladesh army of 6 EBR from DP Para Army Camp led by Lt. Jamal encircled the house of a primary school teacher at Baghaichari Mukh in Dighinala, Khagrachari district.

Bangladesh army shot the indigenous Buddhist teacher and seriously wounded him. The victim had to be amputated and has become crippled for life. The victim is:

  1. Mr. Ananda May Chakma, 32 yrs, son of Mr. Chitrajit Chakma, of Baghaichari Mukh, Dighinala.

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 withou trial, land grab, rape, religious persecution and ethnic cleansing against indigenous Buddhist, Hindu and Animist people in CHT.
