Burning Homes and Broken Trust: The Fragility of Communal Harmony in Manipur

The recent incident of a radical mob allegedly burning down forest offices and homes of Hindu Meitie families in Manipur’s Christian-majority Kuki area is a disturbing reminder of the fragility of communal harmony in our country.

Such incidents not only threaten the safety and security of individuals and communities but also undermine the very fabric of our diverse society.

The imposition of Article 355 in Manipur by the central government highlights the failure of the state government in maintaining law and order in the region. It is indeed alarming to see that the government has acknowledged its inability to ensure the safety of its citizens.

However, what is more, concerning is the apparent lack of urgency and action by the Prime Minister and Home Minister in addressing this situation. It is unacceptable for them to prioritize election campaigning over the safety of citizens.

Moreover, the fact that the state government belongs to the same party as the central government raises questions about the effectiveness of the so-called ‘double engine’ of governance.

The imposition of Article 355 by the central government against its own state government is indeed unprecedented and reflects poorly on the party’s ability to govern effectively.

In times like these, it is crucial that the government takes swift and decisive action to bring the culprits to justice and provide adequate support and compensation to the affected families.

Additionally, efforts must be made to promote inter-community dialogue and understanding to prevent such incidents from recurring in the future.

As citizens, it is our responsibility to condemn such acts of violence and to stand in solidarity with those affected. We must strive towards building a society that embraces diversity and promotes peace and harmony.
