Excerpt
Excerpt: May I take this opportunity to introduce myself -- my name is Ramendu Shekhar Dewan and I am a Chakma from the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT), the south-eastern region of Bangladesh. The CHT is the traditional homeland of ten ethnic groups -- Chakma, Marma, Tripura, Chak, Khyang, Khumi, Murung, Lushai, Bawm and Pankho. All these indigenous people are also popularly known as Jumma people or Jumma Nation. They are totally different from the majority community of Bangladesh in race, religion and culture. The British recognised their distinct identity by creating the CHT as an Excluded Area and administered it under a separate edict called the Chittagong Hill Tracts Regulation of 1900 in order to protect constitutionally their political, economic and cultural rights.
