Bangladesh: Fr. Valentine Talang, OMI, Visits Chittagong Hill Tracts

October 10th, 2018

Fr. Valentine Talang, OMI, recently paid a pastoral visit to a Tripura village in the Chittagong hill tracts at Bandarban district of Bangladesh that borders Myanmar and India.

Chittagong Hill Tracts has a long political history in Bangladesh. It covers 3 districts (Rangamati, Khakrachory and Bandarban) and most of these areas are mountainous. There are 13 indigenous tribes and Bengali people who live in the Chittagong Hill Tracts. The Oblates are working in two parishes namely Lama and Alikodom, under Bandarban district. I am working at Alikodom parish as an assistant priest and a member of the JPIC team in the Bangladesh Delegation.
