Why was the tribal district of Chittagong Hill Tracts with over 97% non-Muslim population awarded to East Pakistan during the partition of India despite the three Buddhist Rajas and people desiring to join India? This book is an investigation into this question. It unearths, for the first time, the circumstances under which the Chittagong Hill Tracts was unjustly awarded to East Pakistan and the actors who were involved in that decision. Was the Chittagong Hill Tracts victim of a British conspiracy? Were the Indian leaders involved in it?
