DIMAPUR — A heartwarming and solemn ‘Solidarity and prayer watch for Manipur’ was held at City Square, Chümoukedima, on Sunday (July 23) evening.

The prayer watch was organised by the Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) in cooperation with Nagaland Joint Christian Forum, Fellowship of Naga Baptist Churches and Chümoukedima Town Pastors’ Fellowship.

The event witnessed the gathering of hundreds of people who stood united in offering prayers and support for the people of Manipur, a testament to the power of community and spirit of compassion.

“We are here because we care. We are here because we love. We are here because we are children of a common humanity. We are here because we long for healing. Above all, we are here because our faith in God who creates new life out of nothing is a faith that transforms death and life, said FNR convenor Rev. Dr. Wati Aier in his message.

Aier said that God instills a unique form of hope within human beings, which is characterised by boundless and unwavering patience, and that this divine hope cannot perish.

“We are daughters and sons of God in faith. We are all one in Christ Jesus. We will live in peace and overthrow the power of hopelessness through Christ our Lord,” he shared.

The event witnessed a symbolic act as both the Meitei and Kuki communities came together and laid flowers on the ground, in remembrance of all those who have lost their lives in the Manipur conflict.

Social activist Niketu Iralu, in his speech, emphasised the significance of the event and commended FNR for facilitating the solemn moment to express solidarity with all the people of Manipur.

Iralu also said that it is imperative for everyone to condemn the ongoing events in Manipur as they have persisted for far too long and might ultimately prove destructive to all.

Expressing his concern, Iralu highlighted that the events unfolding in the neighboring state could easily transpire in Nagaland and across the “increasingly volatile” North-East region.
