Tuensang case: To save nine better stitch in time

[dropcap]C[/dropcap]omplications often crop up due to untimely treating of any problem. Major problems we witness today are built from molehills. In fact, such are the cases created due to late stitches. They failed to save nine.
So, regarding the Tuensang issue, all should contribute their efforts to end the conflict before things turn into something else. The case of Tuensang has the potential to destroy the social fabric of the Naga society. We should not leave the problem to the administration alone now. Civil society organizations and the Church can play effective roles to douse the highly charged atmosphere.Let the administration continue its bounded duty of tackling the situation. But in the same time the Naga tribal hohos should also think it is their bounded duty too to resolve the conflict. In a situation like this the tribal frontal organizations should physically indulge and engage to find a solution. This is not the time of merely appealing through media.
One humble suggestion this column can give is that there should be a joint platform of the Naga frontal organizations specifically to tackle the Tuensang problem. These frontal bodies should somehow persuade the apex bodies of the warring tribes of Yimchunger and Chang to have a continuous engagement under the aegis of the former. We should ensure that this effort should penetrate down to the village level.
For the Church, all the Christian organizations should turn towards the trouble torn district of Nagaland and invest their Good Samaritan services. These Christian bodies should engage with every church in the affected areas.
In addition to these efforts, women and student organizations should too engage with their units in Tuensang district concertedly.
When this strategy is adopted definitely the atmosphere of the district will be changed.
