‘Hindu Meitie Families’ Homes Burned Down in Alleged Communal Attack in Christian Majority Kuki Area of Manipur

In a shocking incident that has sent shockwaves across Manipur, a radical mob allegedly burnt down forest offices and homes of Hindu Meitie families in the Christian-majority Kuki area. The incident, which took place on May 5, has left the affected families in a state of utter shock and despair.

According to eyewitnesses, the mob believed to be Kuki militants, went on a rampage and set ablaze the forest offices and homes of the Hindu Meitie families in retaliation for some alleged dispute. The locals have reported that the police, who were present at the scene, did not intervene to stop the mob and simply watched the horrific events unfold.

The incident has sparked outrage and condemnation from all quarters, with many people drawing parallels with the exodus of Hindus from Kashmir in 1990. The Hindu community in Manipur has been left feeling vulnerable and insecure following the attack.

Speaking to reporters, one of the affected families said, “We are devastated by what has happened. We have lost everything we had, and we feel like we have been abandoned by the authorities. We appeal to the government to take immediate action and ensure the safety and security of our community.”

The incident has also led to calls for stricter action against such communal violence and radicalism in the region. Political leaders and civil society organizations have called for an impartial inquiry into the matter and have demanded that the perpetrators be brought to justice.

The incident has also raised concerns about the safety and security of minority communities in the region. The authorities have been urged to take all necessary steps to ensure that such incidents do not happen again and to provide adequate protection to all communities living in the area.
