THE SILENT PEACE RALLY IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE OF MANIPUR ON FRIDAY, 1ST SEPTEMBER, 2023

1st September, 2023, Kolkata:

Bengal Christian Council, under the aegis of the National Council of Churches in India, is deeply pained and concerned about the ongoing ethnic violence that flared up in May 2023 in India’s north-eastern State of Manipur, involving the Meitei community and the Naga and Kuki tribal communities. Many lives have been lost, many injured and thousands of people have been evacuated and encamped under military protection. Several Churches have been burnt and destroyed.

Bengal Christian Council strongly condemns the violence, appeals to all parties to refrain from further attacks, and urges the State and Central Governments to continue the steps taken to restore normalcy, take appropriate non-violent measures to restore peace and normalcy by engaging the affected communities in meaningful dialogue in a spirit of camaraderie as they have been living in Manipur, thus far, for so many years. Sustainable peace is however far more than the mere absence of violence, and ultimately only justice and reconciliation can bring lasting peace.

At this time of crisis, Bengal Christian Council stands in solidarity with the affected communities, particularly with the Churches that have faced the brunt of the ethnic violence. May the peace of the Resurrected Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ be with all those who are affected by this violence, and with us all.

We pray God Almighty looks favourably upon the situation in Manipur and blesses all efforts to bring healing and reconciliation among the people of Manipur and Peace in the region.

Reports reveal the tragic nature of the devastation caused, especially the heavy loss of innocent lives in the clashes. Worship places and houses were attacked and burned, and heavy damages inflicted on public and private properties. In this context, we urge the communities to refrain from mindless acts of violence, arson, looting, and abuse of women as that is not the answer to such issues. We also urge the communities to support the authorities in bringing lasting peace and normalcy to the region.

“Blessed Are the Peacemakers”
