From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bineshwar Brahma (1946- August 19, 2000 Bodo: बिनेश्वर ब्रह्मा) was the president of the Bodo Sahitya Sabha ('Bodo Literary Union') in Assam, India.



In Bodo language issues, Brahma opposed writing Bodo in Roman script. Instead he advocated the use of Devanagari for writing Bodo, putting him at odds with Christian Bodo groups, like the National Democratic Front of Bodoland.

He also worked on peace efforts between the Assam state government, the Indian Government and various Bodo groups.[1]


He was murdered by the NDFB in Guwahati on August 19, 2000.[1] The NDFB later claimed responsibility for the act, charging that Brahma had been 'an agent of the Bharatiya Janata Party' and that BSS was a front for the rival militant group BLT.[2]
