This fire of hatred and violence wants to burn the entire Manipur to ashes. This fire can be stopped from spreading. But for this, the wall of trust between the Meitei and Kuki communities needs to be restored first.

Manipur, the green beautiful state of Northeast, is smoldering in the fire of violence and hatred and this fire is not taking the name of stopping. Since last May 3, the Meitei and Kuki communities are at loggerheads over the issue of reservation. The Kuki community lives in the mountainous areas, while the Meitei community lives in the foothills of the mountains. There is a dispute between the two communities regarding whether or not to include them in the Scheduled Tribes. The Kuki community believes that the Meitei community should not be included in the Scheduled Tribes. There was a demonstration on this issue in Manipur's Churachandpur on May 3, after which the period of violence that started is still continuing.

Why is the violence not stopping in Manipur?

Let us tell you that since May 3, more than 100 people have been killed in the state while more than 50 thousand people have been forced to leave their homes. Curfew is in force in most of the districts of the state and more than 10,000 soldiers of Army and Assam Rifles have been deployed there to stop the violence. Whereas more than 7 thousand soldiers of CRPF and BSF are also deployed in Manipur. Apart from this, 52 companies of CRPF, 10 companies of Rapid Action Force, 43 companies of BSF, 4 companies of ITBP and five companies of SSB have been deployed to maintain law and order.

Claim of entry of militant organizations

But after this, neither the violence is stopping nor the number of deaths, two days back, 9 people lost their lives while more than 10 were injured in an attack by suspected extremists in a village there. In this dispute between the two communities, now the entry of extremist organizations is also being claimed. According to the state government, around 300 armed militants have entered Manipur's Bishnupur from Myanmar and are moving towards Kuki-populated Churachandpur.

What is the stand of the army?

State Chief Minister N. Biren Singh is also blaming these infiltrators and militants for the violence, according to him, the violence is the result of a fight between the Kuki militants and the security forces. However, the army's stand on this issue is just opposite to theirs, as the army has already said that the current violence in Manipur has nothing to do with militancy and is a conflict between two castes.

This thing came out in the ground report

But when Media reached the ground to decode these claims, it was realized that Kuki and Meitei are badly divided and the wall of hatred between them is getting bigger every day. The situation is so tense that the Kukis are afraid to come to Meitei-dominated Imphal, while the people of the Meitei community are avoiding going to the Kuki area. Even the police and the army are being accused of bias. While the people of the Kuki community, Chief Minister N. While raising questions on Biren Singh and his police, the people of the Meitei community are blaming the Assam Rifles.
