Constitutional recognition of indigenous people demanded

Staff Correspondent

Speakers at a discussion yesterday demanded constitutional recognition of the indigenous people for establishing a non-communal Bangladesh.

The recognition is a must to end discrimination and repression against the indigenous communities in the country, they said also demanding full implementation of Chittagong Hill Tracts Peace Accord-1997.

The discussion on ''Constitutional recognition of the indigenous people and Manabendra Narayan Larma's struggle'' was organised at RC Majumdar Auditorium at Dhaka University.

A special committee on MN Larma, former president of Parbatya Chattagram Jana Sanghati Samity (PCJSS), arranged the programme to mark Larma's 27th death anniversary.

Justice Gholam Rabbani, who presided over the discussion, said the Adivasis should have the right of self-determination for their social, political, cultural, and economic development.

''We want to establish Bangladesh as the country of a nation comprised of people from diverse communities,'' he said.
''So constitutional recognition of the people from different indigenous communities is a must to protect their civic rights.''

Since the Liberation War, policymakers of the state have been behaving in an autocratic manner with the Adivasis, which is similar to that of Pakistani rulers, said Prof Syed Anwar Husain.
