Bangladesh army tortures an indigenous Chakma Buddhist in Mahalchari

On 10 Oct. 1989, Lt. Col. Rukanuddin Commanding Officer of Mahalchari Camp arrested an innocent indigenous person in Mahalchari, Khagrachari district. Bangladesh army arrested the indigenous man on false allegation of being a member of the Shanti Bahini. The victim was subjected to inhuman tortures. The victim is:

  1. Mr. Jnana Jyoti Chakma, 35 yrs, son of Mr. Ashwin Kumar Chakma, of Pagajyachari, Mahalchari.

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.
