Bangladesh army robs indigenous Chakma Buddhists in Dighinala

On 25 June 1989, Bangladesh army from the army camp at Dighipar led by Lt. Shoiab attacked the indigenous Buddhist village Indra Muni Karbari Para in Dighinala, Khagrachari district. During the attack, houses were set on fire and properties were robbed by the army personnel. The victims are:

  1. Mr. Guna Sindhu Chakma, son of Mr. Ketuka Chakma of Indramuni Karbari Para, Dighinala. The army personnel robbed 10 quintals of paddy, 1 quintal of rice, corrugated iron sheets and 12 sauce pans and cooking vessels from the victim.
  2. Mr. Shanti Ranjan Chakma, son of Mr. Ketuka Chakma, address as above. BD Army personnel robbed 12 quintals of paddy, 8 cooking vessels and clothes from the victim.

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.
