Bengali settlers rape an indigenous woman in Ramgarh

On 20 March 2016, a Muslim settler raped an indigenous woman at Patachara in Ramgarh, Khagrachari district. The 28 year old indigenous womman is a divorcee and lives with her mother in the village of Paklapara in Ramgarh.

A Muslim settler named Nurul Huda (31) son of late Abu Taher lured her and took her into a roadside jungle and raped her. When informed, the local people went there and nabbed Nurul on the spot.

Later 4 pickup loads of Bangladesh army personnel arrived there. Bangladesh army officer settled the issue by making Nurul to agree to pay the victim Taka 20,000 as 'compensation'. Bangladesh army then took him into their ‘custody’.

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, land grab, rape, religious persecution and ethnic cleansing against indigenous Buddhist, Hindu and Animist people in CHT.

Bangladesh army and Muslim settlers use rape as a tool to terrorize the indigenous people of Chittagong Hill Tracts. Bangladesh army is involved in rape, murder, torture and land grabbing in Chittagong Hill Tracts. Bangladesh army is driving out indigenous people from Chittagong Hill Tracts and settling Muslim settlers in their villages. Their aim is to Islamize Chittagong Hill Tracts by rape and terror.

Bangladesh army restricts access to Chittagong Hill Tracts to foreign media and tourists. According to IWGIA, Bangladesh army and DGFI train and harbour Islamic extremists in CHT to launch terrorist attack against Myanmar.
