Pangsha Range Council slam construction of trench along Intl border

Pangsha Range Council (PRC) under Tuensang district has expressed strong condemnation against destruction of environment by the “felonious act” of both the governments of India and Myanmar of construction the ongoing trench at the International Trade Centre (ITS, Dan) that seeks to divide the same Khiamniungan Nagas who find themselves on both sides of the international border.
PRC pointed out that the construction of the trench dividing Khiamniungans was being done by cutting of forests belonging to the indigenous people besides destroying the water pipeline connection in addition to “merciless act towards the people of Wolam(Pangsha).
While condemning the Indian and Myanmar governments for the inhuman act, the PRC reiterated its belief in peaceful environment and freedom without separation of the tribe by the trench.
PRC said Khiamniungans have always lived as one community but after British colonialism, an imaginary line was drawn between India and Myanmar where blood relations found themselves separated by the trench.
In conclusion, PRC has reiterated that the community will not be divided by the imaginary line and would not have any biased feelings just because of the “egoistic motive” of those involved in construction of the dividing trench.

On Christmas eve in Manipur, quiet churches, restless stranded students

Written by Esha Roy | Imphal
NTIMES 24 Dec: It will be a dark Christmas for the residents of Imphal city. The night before Christmas eve, Tanghkhul Lane, in Chingmeirong, is pitch black and the lit Bethlehem Stars that adorn the top of every house at this time of the year are stark in their absence. The mood is sombre. Young and old are headed, under the weak streams of light thrown by their mobile phones, to the Tangkhul Lane Community Centre. The frantic activity at the centre has abated since yesterday, but a long line of applicants nevertheless snake out. They are registering themselves with the volunteers at the community centre who have promised to try help get them back home to Ukhrul district.
The road to Ukhrul has been blocked off to prevent Manipur’s Naga population from leaving Imphal city. This is a counter to the blockade called by the United Naga Council over the recent creation of new districts, which it sees as an attempt to divide the Naga people. Those stranded due to the counter-blockade have taken shelter at Imphal’s Tangkhul Lane community centre, as well as another such centre in Chingmeirong. Some have taken shelter with relatives, or been taken in by other Tangkhul families. On Thursday night, around 300 stranded Tangkhuls were given shelter at the centre. By Friday morning though, the community centre doors were locked due to the rush of those coming in.
Leishichon Rungsung, 24, is among those waiting patiently in line to be registered at the centre. By 5.30 pm, the volunteers’ notebook has 700 names. Rungsung, who is in the line with a cousin sister, admits her “desperation”. “I tried once before to leave but couldn’t manage. We couldn’t even leave the boundaries of Imphal city. I would actually have given up trying, but my parents are really forcing me to return,” says Rungsung, adding they are worried about the law and order situation in Imphal.
Rungsung came to Imphal city earlier this year to join a coaching centre, and will be appearing for civil services exams. “There is no such coaching centre back home,” she says. While her parents are telling her to return for good, Rungsung says she will come back to finish her coaching. “If I don’t manage to go back home for Christmas, I will simply stay here and attend classes if there are any,” she says.
Rungsung has four brothers and an elder sister. Only the eldest brother, who is married, stays at home with his family and parents. One brother is pursuing Masters in Bangalore, a brother and sister are in Delhi also preparing for their civil service exams, and the youngest brother is studying medicine in Russia.
While all of them were to return home for Christmas, the other four have cancelled their trip “because of the trouble”. Ngasan Shokwungnao, 33, who lives in Tangkhul Lane with his family and is volunteering at the community centre, says they are struggling to deal with the rush. “We told them to go back to their rented rooms or stay with relatives. If there is any news of convoys heading out to Ukhrul, we will inform them,” he says.
Since Saturday, when 22 vehicles headed to Ukhrul under police protection were stopped and burnt, convoys have been leaving in the dead of night. But the convoy accompanied by Assam Rifles that left carrying 1,000 such stranded residents early Friday morning had to turn back.
“As you can see, all the celebrations have been cancelled. By now, there should have been carol singing in colonies with groups moving from house to house. We are not doing it this year because of the trouble,” says Shokwunghao. The president of the All Naga Students’ Association Manipur, Seth Shatsang, says they will help “the thousands of stranded students” get home. “The Naga community is under siege, the central forces have not been effective. If we can, we will make sure everyone can go home for Christmas,” he says.
The president of the United Council of Manipur (an apex body of Meitei organisations in the valley), Johnson Elangbam, claims they have been holding peace meetings with different tribal communities as well as Meitei civil society to ensure that the situation is eased and the Naga students can go home. “We have urged our people to lift the counter-blockade,” he says, adding, “Even if the UNC does not lift the blockade, we will make sure that Christmas is held peacefully and that there are no untoward incidents.”
However, even the churches in Imphal are not taking any chances after Saturday’s attack. While the Tangkhul Baptist Church, Imphal city’s second largest church, has put up some decorations, the revellers are missing. The lights strung on the church steeple will not be lit this year “to avoid trouble”. In the compound, a large stack of hay lies bundled. It was to be converted with white fluffy cotton and buckets of talcum powder into a snowman. Outside the church, someone has stuck a poster saying that the church cannot open for worship without the locality’s permission.
Pastor Reverned Ngamlee Zimik says Meitei elders had reassured them that they could remain open. “They have condemned the incidents in which churches were attacked,” he says. However, he adds, “We are keeping it quiet, trying not to make any noise. So all the festivities around Christmas have been cancelled — the caroling, the singing competitions, the Bible quizzes etc. People can come and worship on Christmas day, but nothing more than that.”
The Manipur Baptist Church, a stone’s throw away and Imphal’s largest, is quieter still. The church was attacked last Saturday by a mob of stone-pelters. While no real damage was done, apart from a few broken window-panes, the church authorities are shaken.
Rev S R Onesima says that while Christmas will be celebrated, things will be low key. “This is the first time Christmas will be barely celebrated by any church in Imphal. We have cancelled our grand feast,” he says.
Ironically churches employ Meitei Brahmins to cook a large part of the Christmas grand feast, with popular Manipuri fish and vegetarian dishes. Indian Express

CJNCSD Condemns the Communal And Ethnic Persecution Of The Nagas In Manipur

New Delhi, 20th December, 2016 – Taking serious note of the escalating communal and ethnic tension, the Joint Naga Civil Societies, Delhi (CJNCSD) today strongly condemns the unleashing of communal violence against the Naga community, wanton desecration, vandalization and torching of Churches and “surgical” implanting of improvised bombs in the Naga populated residential areas, terming the whole sequence of events as state-sponsored and a handiwork of the State Government to terrorise the Nagas.
CJNCSD cries foul of the State Government and UCM for sponsoring and triggering the menacing communal violence and dubs the State Government and UCM as rabidly communal and anti-Naga. CJNCSD, in particular, takes exception to the incendiary and anti-Naga slogans such as “There are no Nagas in Manipur”, and “If you are a Naga, go to Nagaland and the Nagas are refugees in Manipur” and terms the same as a form of ethnic persecution.
CJNCSD regrets that UCM volunteers and its cohorts have chosen the blood-path of spewing brutal communal violence against the Naga community for the last more than a week, committing daylight robbery, vandalizing, destroying and looting properties belonging to the Nagas. More than 70 private vehicles and properties including personal belongings, luggages, hand bags and valuable gifts and presents meant for the loved ones during Christmas worth crores of rupees were looted, destroyed and torched. Innocent Naga civilian passengers are still continuously being physically assaulted, harassed, looted, attacked and targeted with stones, slingshots and bottled-petrol bombs.
CJNCSD takes a jibe at the subsequent call of the Chief Minister of Manipur and UCM for communal harmony and compensation for the victims as nothing but a height of political gimmick and hypocrisy to further insult the Nagas. CJNCSD terms the inaction of the State Government of Manipur as a deliberate act and demands for immediate CBI enquiry into the whole sequence of events including the role of the State Government.
CJNCSD states that the present communal turmoil caused by Ibobi Government is the last straw for the Nagas to reaffirm its stand that total separation of the Naga areas from the valley is the only recourse to permanent solution and thus appeals the immediate intervention of the Government of India to that effect.
CJNCSD states that on 19th December, 2016, the Committee along with the UNC delegation met the Hon’ble Minister of State, Sh. Kiren Rijiju seeking immediate intervention of the Government of India and reiterated the following demands: immediate nullification of the creation of the seven new districts; unconditional release of the UNC leaders; to expedite the finalization of the Framework Agreement; imposition of President’s Rule in the State of Manipur; deployment of security forces in the Naga areas to protect the Nagas and their properties from the communal forces of the State; immediate CBI enquiry into the incident, and compensation for the victims.
Meanwhile, in view of the prevailing tense situation, CJNCSD appeals the Nagas not to panic but cautions for personal safety to avoid travelling to Imphal valley till the situation returns to normalcy.

Manipur crisis: A complete account from economic blockade to attacks on civilians

By Raymond Ronamai

Manipur may be a small state with a population of just over 25 lakh, but the divide between the people living in the valley and the hills is so wide that not a year goes by without bandhs and other protests over several disagreements. Imphal valley is predominantly inhabited by the Meiteis, and the hills are predominantly inhabited by the Nagas and Kukis.

The state is once again in turmoil with the capital city being turned into a war-like situation after the majority Meitei protesters waylaid and attacked hundreds of Naga civilians travelling to their villages for Christmas celebration on Sunday, injuring dozens of innocent commuters, and setting several vehicles aflame. The protest was held against the killing of three policemen by some unknown people last Thursday. Manipur government has held the Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagalim (Isak-Muivah) or NSCN-IM, an insurgent group which signed “peace accord” with the Narendra Modi government last year, responsible for the killing but no group has claimed responsibility so far.
The violence that erupted in the state in the last few days was a culmination of several events, displeasure and disagreements between the government of Manipur dominated by the majority community Meiteis and the Nagas (minority).

It all unfolded with the Manipur government’s decision to create two more districts — Sadar Hills and Jiribam. The United Naga Council (UNC), the apex civil organisation of the Nagas in Manipur, objected to the plan saying that it should be done only after consulting with all the tribal organisations. However, the state government didn’t pay heed and decided to go ahead with its plan without consulting the stakeholders.

This angered the UNC as creation of new districts will endanger and encroach upon the traditional land holdings of the Nagas that is protected by the constitution of India. The government argued that the creation of new districts was for administrative convenience, but the UNC expressed the sentiment of the Nagas to live together under the same administrative roof.
Left with no other choice after the state government gave a deaf ear to their plea, the UNC finally called for an indefinite economic blockade along two national highways, the lifeline of the state, on November 1 and it still stands (as of December 19).

It caused lots of hardship to the people of the state, especially those staying in state capital Imphal. Price of essential goods shot up and normal life of the people in the valley was crippled. The state security personnel managed to escort vehicles carrying goods to the valley a few times but that didn’t help much. This led to counter protests by the Meiteis, who resorted to confiscation of materials, especially vegetables that were brought in by the Nagas for sale.
At this volatile juncture, Manipur police arrested UNC President Gaidon Kamei and Publicity Secretary Sankhui Stephen on November 25 and filed FIR against them for the economic blockade that has caused sufferings to thousands of people in the state. But their arrest aggravated the Nagas even more.

As if that was not enough, Manipur Chief Minister Ibobi Singh announced not two but seven new districts — Kangpokpi, Tengnoupal, Pherzawl, Noney, Kamjong, Jiribam and Kakching — earlier this month, taking the number of districts in the state from nine to 16. Some communities welcomed the move, but it was like rubbing salt on the wounds for the Nagas.

Last week, police personnel patrolling for the inauguration function of Tengnoupal district were ambushed by unknown miscreants, killing three policemen. The state government has accused NSCN-IM for the attack, but no organisation has claimed responsibility till date.

Things took a different turn last weekend with Meitei protestors threatening Nagas staying in the valley. The Manipur Baptist Church (MBC) in Chingmeirong was attacked with stones by the valley protesters on Saturday. The mob also warned the church not to conduct Sunday services.

Meitei protestors got more violent on Sunday by attacking vehicles carrying Nagas, who were on their way to their respective villages to celebrate Christmas. Many civilians were reportedly injured due to stone pelting, and dozens of private vehicles were set ablaze. All these happened despite the vehicles were escorted by security convoy. Hundreds of innocent civilians were stranded after the vehicles on which they were travelling were either burnt, vandalised or pushed into the river.

Sensing the volatile situation that could lead to communal riot, the state government has imposed indefinite curfew in Imphal East and West districts besides suspending Internet services across the city but harm seems to have already been done, as the protesters were allowed to take law into their own hands while the state armed forces looked on. ibtimes.co.in

AFSPA be there and Educate the Armed Personnel

Let normalcy return, then we will look into it. The Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) will be not be revoked in Manipur, said Shivraj Patil… (Sunday express: 8/8/04). Even if there are not any chances to revoke the AFSPA this time in Manipur or any parts of India. Let the Armed Personnel go to school and educate themselves not to harass, rape and kill the innocent civilians taking the advantage of AFSPA.

Do you think the civilian sponsored the insurgents? Do you think the villagers feed with good food and hide them in their houses? Do you think the innocent people are happy with the insurgent problems? Do you think the state government can solve the insurgent problem in North East India? The Indian Express, Journalism of Courage, also writes, No central leaders has even initiated a dialogue with the insurgents The Union Home Minister said, We cannot force them to talk to us But the question is, Is it possible for the State government to solve the insurgent problem in Manipur or any other states in India? The innocent villagers (civilians) are helpless under insurgency threat.

In the same situation, the State Govt. also helpless to deal with the insurgents and they have not even authority to grant the demand from the insurgencies. The Armed Personnel easily beaten up, rape and kill the innocent civilians taking the advantage of AFSPA. The innocent villagers are helpless when the insurgents with sophisticated weapons demanded to give food or shelter. Like the Armed Personnel, the insurgent takes away like chicken, pig etc without paying a single penny. How long the innocent villagers can feed the insurgents? Do you think that the innocent villagers love to feed and hide the insurgents? If the insurgent forced to take shelter or food in your house what will be your reaction?

Is it your life more important or losing your one-day meal or sleepless night? It would be good to ponder yourself if you are in such situation. The underground generally lives in the forest. As they also human being and they take food. When they are hungry, they go to the villagers for food and if the villagers refused to give the food, they are sure to get gun butt or any big stick around them. The civilians are always helpless and in dilemma. The Cinema halls are closed down in Manipur. Even the local journalists are helpless. The local polices are helpless. Yes what the police with Rifle can do. The insurgents have sophisticated weapons. When the Armed personnel come to learn the insurgent taking food or hidden in the villages. The Indian Army especially the Assam Rifles easily beaten up, rapes and kills the innocent villagers. It is the innocent villagers who give 

Food and shelter to the insurgents but they would give only when threat comes from the insurgents. Not one works and lives for other people. After my matriculation, once one of my friend and I were forcefully taken to the jungle as a ransom for the villagers for not giving money to the insurgents. Bu later we were released after the payment to the insurgent. Please do not blame the innocent villagers. When any of the paramilitary is going to North East India, they give a special training and instruction about the N.E. people.

The Indian paramilitaries are taught and impaled the strong idea against the insurgents by saying that they are your enemies. But the fact is that the insurgents are not against the Indian paramilitary forces but they have their own demand from the central government and it needs to be solved through peaceful dialogue with the insurgents. Be a good soldier and fight against the Indian enemies but do not harass, rape and kill the innocent people. Most of the Indian paramilitary forces have just pass Class VIII and they have no much knowledge to analyze about the critical situation. But since the army officers are educated and they should teach their children not to harass, rape and kill the innocent people.

The Indian Army also human being like, any other human being. They have their own children and wife to feed and want to live in this world. They are not the suicide squad. Why forcing the Indian armies to fight against the insurgents? Armies are easily killed in ambush. All the citizens of India should appeal the Indian government to take initiative to solve the insurgency problems so that our fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters who are in Indian armed force are not sacrifice as a ransom for not taking the initiative by the central govt. to solve the insurgency problem. Many armed forces do not want to die simply and they are angry when their officers send them to fight against the insurgents in the village.

And when they could not find the insurgents in the village, their anger leave on the villagers as if the innocent villagers had done something wrong to them. But they should always remember that it is not the villagers who create problem but the insurgents. The Union Home Minister said that they cannot force the insurgent to talk to them but how can peaceful solution can bring forth without a peaceful dialogue with the insurgents. Will you not say anything to your black sheep in your family before the whole family is defamed and destroyed? If you think so, let the insurgents continue to growth in North East and other parts of India till they are strong enough to disturb or destroy the whole India. Otherwise it is high time for the Home Minister to take initiative to solve the insurgent problem in India and educate the armed personnel not to harass, rape and kill the innocent people.

New Year thoughts: To become a better neighbor in 2016

  1. Your status in 2016: Instead of sharing and showing off what you did and what you are in your Status update in Facebook, it would be much better to share what others did for you and for others as the other people will be benefited from that unless what you did or what you are is going to inspire or help someone. Sometime, we may need to reveal what we did for others and who we are but it may be no necessary to reveal every time unless it is demanded.
  1. Share information and knowledge: Those who come to know any information news (news article) related job opportunities, health, wealth, safety, education or anything that will be beneficial to your friends in Facebook and other social media (and neighbors in real world), should share with others unless we are too selfish and always eager to have it for ourselves.

I sincerely hope and pray that in 2016 everyone ( and readers of this thought) may start to share more information with others to help each other. Otherwise, we shall become quite selfish and learning ourselves keeping secret from others. There are abundant of information available in google world and other medias, but due to lack of time and other reasons, not one is able to have all the information or data with us. Therefore sharing information with your friends would be great help to your friends and loved ones.

Sharing information with others is always good; it also shows our inner heart: One thing I want to share with you about sharing news or information with others: As a creator and Admin. of Nagalim Times and some others… I need to and have to share some informative news and other interesting article with other people (members). And to share or doing this, I have to first read and share, and thus helped me more (myself more) than others. Because, some people may no even read or like it , but you, as you have read and shared with others, it helps you a lot. In one word: those who help others help themselves and broaden their mind.

Not only sharing informative news or article with others, we should also share our knowledge and wisdom with others. There are two advantages of sharing your knowledge and wisdom with others – it helps you to sharpen (increase) your knowledge and wisdom. And other people will be benefited learning from you. The disadvantages are – without sharing (in any form) the knowledge with others, your knowledge will gradually vanish with pace of time and other people (friends or neighbors) will never be benefited from you.

  1. Sharing worldly materials: Through our activities in social networking, many a times our virtual-world attitude and heart reveal our real-world heart. You know that there are some people who love to share their things with others. You know that there are also some people who do not want to share with others what they have. You know that there are some children do not want to share their sweet – candy with their peers. If you do not want to share any informative news or information with others in virtual world, I do not believe that you can be a good neighbor too in real world, and you have the heart to share your food and vegetables with your neighbors. Life is always a part of learning, and we learn a lots through our own experiences or from others. I hope that we start learning to share with others and experience the joy of sharing with others – may be any informative news ( or knowledge and wisdom) or any worldly materials that we have in real world.

Delhi Police back to back up the North East people in Delhi

22 Dec. 2015: After the infamous booklet published by the Delhi police on “Dos and don’t” for NE students in July 2007, now the Delhi police is back to back up the North East India people in Delhi. The booklet on ‘Dos and Don’t’ went viral in social networking site and in all the local and national news paper. The good intention of the Delhi Police was assumed (turned out) to be a direct attack to the NE people by many NE people, and believe that the booklet was a discrimination, alienation from NE, prejudice, divisive policy etc.

Today the Delhi police is helping many NE people in Delhi and other cities too.  Their good Samaritan work is now vividly seen and published in many social media and other printed media.  In recent Delhi police recruitment especially for the NE people is encourageable, and it is believe that more NE people recruitment into Delhi police will be able to tackle the various problems encounter by the NE people in Delhi.

A special credit goes to IGP Robin Hibu IPS Nodal Officer for North East Region,  and his team for helping the NE people in Delhii and working out to bring justice for the NE people.

Unwise Delhi Police divisive policy on NE people

By: R.B. Thohe Pou *

We are happy that we have an IPS in Delhi from North East India. He is from Northeast and people from NE may feel good because there is some one from NE who can fight justice for the NE people. But bringing out the booklet, “Security tips for the Northeast students/visitors in Delhi” is unwise booklet, which brings more insecure and division to the NE people from the mainstream India.

Today, there is a booklet on, Security tips for the NE students in Delhi, but I am afraid that tomorrow there may be many such similar booklets for each community living in different parts of India. In every city or town there are some minority people and if we make a separate rule for the minority group with the interest of the majority people, the minority people will have no place to live. Bringing the booklet on, Security tips for the northeast students in Delhi is one of the most unwise booklets.

I am indeed sad to learn that IPS who seems to be educated person is trying to divide the NE people, and divert the NE people from the mainstream Indian. We know that there are many politicians trying their best to bring unity in diversity in India. But he is just enjoying writing to divide the people. Most of the NE people want to have their own state/nation as we observed in last 30-50 decades. So trying to divide and make such kind of discrimination would be added another chance or encourage to go ahead with their agenda to live a separate nation.

I am sure that it is not wise to make rule for some specific people. I think we should always take precaution in writing very critical view or making such of separate rule for those insurgent dominated region. If they are hurt, law is nothing to do and the gun/sword what they have in their hand may be used to find the justice.

I am sad because the Delhi Moral Police is treating us unwisely also they are indirectly destroying the good work of last 20-30 decades of our politicians. Mr. IPS from Arunachal Pradesh might have gone out of his head. How can he insist to make separate rule for the NE and divide the northeast people from mainland India when many politicians are trying to bring the whole northeast people under the mainstream of India, if he continues to insist on his writing, thinking that “Pen is mightier than sword”, I am afraid that some of the insurgents from NE may teach a new lesson that “Sword is mightier than Pen” in this modern world.

We all need to know that in this modern world, no one is the boss to dictate. It is becoming very difficult to use force without the concern of the people. Let’s learn to live together peacefully and share the problems to solve the problems for there is no any human problem, which is too difficult to solve.
