*Chakmas Refugees*

So far India's outcast administration is concerned she should outline its exile law and needs to put her displaced people in various classifications, as indicated by their chronicled separation and treachery. Chakmas are such a class who go under it. Chakmas, who settled in 1964, were around five decades back, are recovering their essential human poise which they were denied on different events by the State Government and in addition common society gatherings.

The Chakmas are the tribals of the Northeastern conditions of India. They are settled essentially in the conditions of Mizoram, Tripura, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya and West Bengal. They relocated from the Chittagong Hill Tract (CHT) of East Bengal (now Bangladesh) to the Mizo slopes. It is additionally trusted that before they moved from the Champa Kingdom in Cambodia and the Lushai's called Chakmas as Tui-Chek, which implies the general population who lived close to water. Chakmas have close similarity to Mongolians of the Tibeto-Burman gatherings. Khyangtha and Thangtha are the two gatherings inside the Chakmas. They are characterized based on the spots where they live. Khyangthas live on the bank of the waterway while Thangthas likewise called Jhumias live on slope tops. Chakmas follow in Buddhism and have a dialect of Burmese stock and Sanskrit contents. Agar Tara a form of Buddhist sacred text is their most seasoned sacred writing. It is perused on the exceptional events like relational unions, funerals and so forth.
Chakmas are the Mongoloid clans most likely of the Arakanese cause. The name Chakma is sometimes spelled as 'Tsakma' Tsak or Thek in Burmese. They may have moved from a place someplace in South-East Asia. The Chakmas are the first occupants of the CHT are maybe the minimum known individuals of Asia being the inhabitants of a remote and in reverse zone which is of minimal political or financial outcome. This place has been the country of the Chakmas, especially for quite a long time. In spite of the fact that the beginning of the Chakmas is excessively dim, their history associates them with the rugged kingdom of Kapilnagar in the Himalayan extents. It is learned that from 1052 A.D onwards the Chakmas began moving from Arakan into the circumscribing zone of Bengal directly down the plain territories of Chittagong (Bangladesh) and made it their home. There is very little documentation available on the early history of the Chakmas. However, there is evidence of the mention of a place known as ‘Chacomas’ in central CHT, probably referring to the land inhabited by the Chakmas, in the 1550s where a Burmese king claims himself to be the ‘highest and most powerful king of Arakan, Tippera (Tripura), of Chacomas and of Bengala’.
In 1947 Radcliffe surrendered the CHT locale to Pakistan, when India was divided based on religion into Islamic Pakistan and mainstream India, however, the region was 98.5 percent Buddhist9. On the fifteenth of August 1947, Chakma young people under the initiative of Sneha Kumar Chakma lifted the Indian tricolor at Rangamati. After six days the Pakistanis brought down the Indian tricolor at gunpoint.
On the opposite side, Jawaharlal Nehru guaranteed Sneha Kumar Chakma, the agent of the Parbattya Chattogram Jana Samity, that the Bengal Boundary Commission had no purview over the CHT. Prior to India's autonomy, Sneha Kumar Chakma had met Sardar Patel and Jawaharlal Nehru in July 1947 and was guaranteed by both, that CHT would stay with India. On eighteenth of July 1947, when the Indian Independence Act was distributed, it demonstrated that Radcliff had not tuned in to the entries of the two Hindu individuals from the Bengal Boundary Commission, Justice Bijon Mukherjee, and Charu Biswas, that CHT ought to be with India. Sneha Kumar hurried to Delhi subsequent to raising the Indian Tricolor at Rangamati on the fifteenth of August 1947, to meet the Indian pioneers to attempt and get amended the choice of Radcliffe11. He met Sardar Patel, who disclosed to him that he was with him yet he should meet Jawaharlal Nehru. It took 50 days for Sneha Kumar Chakma to meet Nehru. When he, at last, got a group of people and told Nehru the CHT ought to be with India, and the Chakmas were prepared to battle for this and would India help with arms, Nehru got up in outrage and yelled, "Do you propose to bring India under outside control once more?" That choice sounded the passing chime for the hapless Chakmas. In this manner, the Chakmas needed to unwillingly join Pakistan.


Cheers!
