Bangladesh army tortures indigenous Chakma Buddhists in Rangamati

On 23 June 1989, Bangladesh army of 5 EBR from Kudukchari Army Camp launched a military operation against the indigenous Buddhist villages Badalchari and Kudukchari in Rangamati. Bangladesh army arrested 2 indigenous Chakma Buddhists and subjected them to severe beating and physical tortures. The victims are:

  1. Mr. Bhusan Chakma, 32 yrs, son of Mr. Bilashwar Chakma, of Kudukchari, Rangamati.
  2. Mr. Ananda Kumar Chakma, 50 yrs, son of Mr. Nilak Chakma of Badalchari, Rangamati.

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.
