Monitoring Desk: Though Manipur riots are considered as majority Meitei Tribe vandalized against minority Kuki Tribe, the fact-finding report shows otherwise. It has been documented that 249 churches of the Meitei Tribe were also burnt down by Meitei Hindus.  

According to data collected by Human Rights groups that completed a visit to the region, Manipur is fully a war zone, with sophisticated rifles, mortars, bombs, and massive mobilization of ordinary civilians, in which the state does nothing to restore peace, ensure justice, protect civilians, or assist people in camps in which children already are displaying signs of malnourishment; but instead is often perceived to be taking sides in what threatens to grow into a civil war. On both sides, entire villages have been razed to ashes.

   

“I searched desperately for signs of hope, of peace and healing in the immediate future. I could find this only in stories we heard in the camps of people of the “other” community who helped save lives. I grieve for our people. I grieve for our beleaguered, broken land. I rage for the malign governments that we have installed”, commented one of the members of Rights group.
