Till when the fire of Manipur will be extinguished, the common people are again burning in the violence of discrimination and revenge

Mainly three communities of people live in Manipur. Among them, Naga and Kuki are the recognized tribal communities and they occupy about ninety percent of the protected hill area there. The Meitei community is almost twice the population of these two tribes, but only ten percent of the territory is free for them.

Violence broke out once again in Manipur. Again the army had to be deployed there. Internet services had to be suspended for five days. When the violence broke out about a fortnight ago, many houses were set on fire, many people were killed. Then about ten thousand people had to be evacuated from the violence-hit areas. At that time, the government had ordered to shoot the miscreants on sight. After that there was no disturbance for about ten days, but on Monday, once again violence erupted in Imphal area. It is being told that people of the Meitei community were forced to close shops there, due to which violence broke out.

many houses were set on fire

This time it is a matter of pride that there is no news of any casualty. But some houses were set on fire this time also. In such a situation, there is a question that till when this fire of Manipur will calm down. The controversy actually started after the High Court there ordered the state government to consider the ten-year-old demand of granting Scheduled Tribe status to the Meitei community. This raised apprehensions among the recognized tribal communities that the government may accord tribe status to the Meitei community and they may start encroaching on their protected territory.

Mainly three communities of people live in Manipur. Among them, Naga and Kuki are the recognized tribal communities and they occupy about ninety percent of the protected hill area there. The Meitei community is almost twice the population of these two tribes, but only ten percent of the territory is free for them. Thus they are mainly confined to the Imphal area. But the Meitei community is impressive in every sense. This community has more MLAs in politics, forty out of sixty.

Then they have dominance in the administration as well. They have been demanding for years that they too should be given the status of a tribal community. If this happens, the Meitei community may also get the right to enter the protected area of ​​the tribes. That is why the recognized tribes remain apprehensive. The government there is not unaware of this fact, but it never tried to solve this issue seriously.

Ever since the new government has come there, there has been apprehension among the tribal people that it is patronizing the Meitei community. Their apprehension turned to indignation when a drive to evict illegal settlers from protected hill areas was launched in February this year. The government maintained that outsiders had settled there, while the tribal communities claimed that they were their own people. After that, when the order of the High Court came, their anger exploded and they went on arson.

Now the battle there is turning into a battle of supremacy. One of those arrested in the latest violence is also a former MLA, who has links with the ruling party. If the government there continues to try to stop the disharmony between the communities in an ad hoc manner instead of permanently, then this fire will hardly calm down soon.
