The Genocide
 The 1992 Mallya Massacre of indeginous tribal at Chittagong Hill Tract.

Since its independence in 1971, Bangladesh has ignored the fundamental rights of minorities and slowly made the minorities as the second class citizen of the country. The direct state sponsored discrimination become noticeable right after the birth of the country. In 1972, the then president of Bangladesh enacted “Vested Property Act” by changing the name of Pakistan’s black law of 1965 “The Enemy Property Act”. The then East Pakistan from which Bangladesh was born as an independent country enacted the “Enemy Property Act” in 1965 to confiscate the land of Hindu minorities which is an act by state to annihilate minorities of the then East Pakistan. It is well known fact that East Pakistan was involved in state sponsored genocidal crime against minorities since 1947 when it breakaway from British India.

The atrocity and persecution endured by the minorities in East Pakistan finds no difference in their plights even after the independence of Bangladesh. Some argues that country’s minority has suffered severely during 1971 independence movement of Bangladesh and sustained the diabolical pestle hoping for the best in the newly born country. Instead they were turned down again and again by government of Bangladesh. Amnesty’s rightful stating, “All government has let down minorities in Bangladesh” is the indication of the hindered truth.
