Bangladesh army tortures an indigenous Marma Buddhist in Laxmichari

On 24 March 1989, Bangladesh army of 2 EBB led by Capt. Anwar and Subedar Bashir arrested an indigenous Marma Buddhist in Laxmichari, Khagrachari district. Bangladesh army accused him of being a member of the Shanti Bahini.

Bangladesh army severely tortured him during detention. The victim is:

  1. Mr. Anu Marma, 35 yrs of Dalya Tali, Laxmichari.

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.
