Re: Exchange Of Rohingyas Of Myanmar And The Indigenous Peoples Of Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) Of
People residing in Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) are not indigenous to this land. If there is any indigenous people in this land, they are Bengalis. Human settlement in this region started at least 4 thousand years back. CHT hill people migrated to this land driven by their own kind of people only about 400 years back. We Bengalis are very much aware of the fact that CHT hill people hate the indigenous Bengali people for their color of skin is little bit darker than that of Mongoloid origin Chakmas. Skin color of an average Bengali is darker as their origin lies in the Dravidians of South India, who are, in turn, offshoot of Negroid race who settled in the Indus Valley (Mohenjo Daro and Harappa) Anthropologically speaking even Bengalis are not indigenous to this land.
