Sama Odhikar Andolon holds seminar to conceal its recent barbaric activities

On 11 May 2008 military-backed extreme Bengali nationalist and fanatic organisation of the Bengali settlers so-called ‘Sama Odhikar Andolon’ (Equal Rights Movement) organizes a seminar at National Press Club in Dhaka. As it is, the speakers of this seminar urged the caretaker government to re-set up army camp at all sensitive spots in CHT areas for establishing so-called equal rights for Bengali settlers.

Kapaeeng Watch believes that this seminar is nothing but to conceal recent arson attack on 7 indigenous villages at Sajek union under Baghaichari upazila in Rangamati district of Chittagong Hill Tracts region led by the leaders of Sama Odhikar Andolon Mr. Selim Bahari, President of Baghaichari branch and Mr. Golam Molla, President of Baghaihat branch with the direct support of military forces of Baghaihat army zone of 33 East Bengali Regiment (2) led by commanding officer Lt. Col. Sajid Imtiaz last 20 April. In this attack, around 76 houses of indigenous Jumma villagers of 7 villages were completely burnt down.

The Sama Odhikar Andolon under the leadership of detained BNP lawmaker Abdul Wadud Bhuiyan is active communal and fanatic activities and opposition of the CHT Peace Accord since its inception on 15 February 2004.
