Bangladesh army tortures 2 indigenous Tripura Hindus in Matiranga

On 22 August 1989, Bangladesh army personnel from Bizitola Camp tortured 2 indigenous Tripura Hindus in Matiranga, Khagrachari district on a false allegation of helping the Shanti Bahini. The victims are:

  1. Mr. Jananta Tripura, 45 yrs, son of Mr. Kamal Chandra Tripura, of Molatoi Takluk Para, No. 200 Toimatai Mouza, Matiranga.
  2. Mr. Bhang Kumar Karbari of Toimathai Para, No. 200 Toimatai Mouza, Matiranga.

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.
