Dimapur, May 5 (EMN): Expressing deep pain and concern over the loss of lives, violence, vandalism, and burning down of churches and institutions in Manipur, the Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) has called upon the government of Manipur and the Centre to respond swiftly in an appropriate manner to settle the prevailing issues.

The council in a press release stated that the current unrest has affected the lives of many, not sparing even the children, elderly and the sick, and has caused great damage to the community.

 “We urge them (Manipur Govt. and Centre) to take necessary steps to ensure that the situation is brought under control and that the perpetrators of violence are brought to justice,” NBCC said.

The council also appealed to the whole populace of Manipur to remain calm and give a chance for better alternatives to resolve the issues.

“Violence and destruction will only lead to more suffering and chaos, and we believe that peaceful dialogue and negotiations are the only way to achieve a lasting solution,” it said.

The council further called upon all the Baptist churches under NBCC to pray for an amicable solution to the present situation.

“Pray that God will grant healing, peace and comfort to those affected by the unrest and wisdom to those involved in the negotiations and decision-making process,” it stated.

The council went on to assure that it stands in solidarity with the people of Manipur during the difficult time and that it will continue to monitor the situation closely.

“We urge everyone to work together towards a peaceful and just solution to the current crisis,” it added.
