Bengali settlers rob an indigenous Buddhist house in Naniachar

On 26 June 1989, Muslim settlers robbed an indigenous Buddhist house at gun point at Shikalya Para in Naniachar, Rangamati district. The victim is:

  1. Mr. Nirode Bikash Talukdar, 45 yrs, son of Mr. Lalit Mohan Talukdar of Shikalya Para, Naniachar. Muslim settlers robbed 3 quintals of paddy, 1 quintal of pulse, 1 quintal rapeseed and cash around Taka 7000.00 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.
