Dimapur, Oct. 16 (EMN): Amid controversy around the proposed “Anglo-Kuki War 1917-19” centenary commemoration in Manipur, the Naga Students’ Union Delhi (NSUD) has issued a press release stating that a few organisations in Manipur are “repetitively distorting the history” and claiming to be indigenous people of the state.

NSUD stated that it is not against the centenary celebration but “distorting of history with a malafide intention to create communal tension under the concocted nomenclature ‘the Anglo-Kuki War 1917-19’ and the proposed inscription “in defense of our ancestral land and freedom” with the intention of grabbing the ancestral land of the aboriginal communities living in the state of Manipur is a major issue which is anti-thesis to the peaceful co-existence. It added that the union won’t allow the event to take place.

Taking cognizance of the possibility of social tension and unrest which will affect the peaceful co-existence of many communities in Manipur, the Government of Manipur has asked the organisers to delete the line: “in defense of our ancestral land and freedom” inscribed in the memorial stone of the centenary commemoration of Anglo-Kuki War 1917-19, said the statement.

While thanking Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh for taking timely action, the student body reiterated that “any move to infringe on the land and identity of the Nagas will not be tolerated.
