Manipur violence: NSCN (I-M) warns against harassing Nagas

Describing as “something very detestable” the ongoing violence between the two communities—Meiteis and Kukis—in Manipur, the NSCN (I-M) has warned against harassing Nagas in any manner.
NSCN (I-M) through its MIP stated that the attack against the place of human inhabitants (villages) was very inhuman. It also stated that burning down of places of worship (Churches) was considered as “sacrilegious acts” committed on religious lines.
NSCN (I-M) asserted that all those acts of violence were violation of human rights that were applicable to all members of human society.
NSCN (I-M) sough to put on record that the Naga minor tribes—Aimol, Chiru, Chothe, Kharam, Koireng and Kom—were part of Naga community. It stated that those minor Naga tribes have been actively involved in the “Nagas’ political struggle for their freedom from India and Myanmar till our goal is achieved.”
“Our Meitei brothers and Kukis should not take them otherwise and harass them in any manner,” NSCN (I-M) said. It expressed regret that one Kom village (Kangathei village) had come under attack by Kuki militants and the villagers were forced to vacate their village. “Such vicious violence will only aggravate the situation and this must be put to stop forthwith for the sake of humanity and peaceful coexistence,” NSCN (I-M) stated.
