Abstract

This paper analyzes the contestations pertaining to identity, nationalism and citizenship that have arisen during the struggles of indigenous peoples of the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) of Bangladesh against ethnic domination backed by the state.¹ The region has been a part of the British Indian empire and the post-colonial state of Pakistan, and is currently within the state of Bangladesh. Even though the latter has a multi-ethnic population with multiple languages and cultures, where ethnic Bengalis speaking the Bengali language are numerically and politically dominant, there has been a systematic reluctance to acknowledge the plural and heterogeneous nature of society within a tolerant legal-constitutional framework.
