Taking on Twitter, the official page of North American Manipur Tribal Association announced that, “NAMTA invites you to join the fight for Justice in Manipur! Tribal Solidarity Against Ethnic Cleansing in #Manipur #India”
The tribal body even attacked the Meitei community, accusing them of allowing extreme forces who purportedly belonged to the Meitei community to seize freedom of religion, the right to life, physical integrity, freedom of movement, domicile, and security.
According to the official statement, The Kuki-Zomi community's displaced members are living in appalling conditions, with neither the State Government of Manipur nor the Central Government of India providing anything in the way of humanitarian relief.
The tribal association even targeted the community, claiming that since May 3, 2023, attacks on the Kuki-Zomi villages have reportedly been carried out by terrorists who are primarily Meitei with the assistance of state police commandos.
Meanwhile, Uddhav Thackeray, the leader of the Shiv Sena (UBT), questioned on Monday why Prime Minister Narendra Modi does not shine over acts of violence if his fans believe he is like the Sun.questioned his journey to the US at a time when ethnic conflict is raging in the north-eastern state of Manipur, having ravaged Manipur.
The ethnic violence in Manipur that broke out over a month ago between members of the Meitei and Kuki communities resulted in extensive home burnings and the deaths of over 100 persons.
Army and paramilitary personnel have been sent to the northeastern state to reestablish peace. Attacks on Hindus, according to Thackeray, demonstrate the Hindutva ideology of the BJP's failure.
