Bangladesh army tortures 2 indigenous Chakma Buddhists in Rangamati

On 13 July, 1989 - Bangladesh army arrested 2 indigenous Chakma Buddhists at Duluchari village in Rangamati. Bangladesh army took the victims to Kudukchari Camp where the victims were subjected to inhuman tortures. The victims are:

  1. Mr. Barchoga Chakma, 50 yrs, son of Shubamani Chakma of Duluchari, Rangamati.
  2. Mr. Nishi Kumar Chakma, 27 yrs, son of Mr. Barchoga Chakma, address as above.

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.
