In this editorial episode, Mr. Sujit Nair talks about the migration of the Meitei community from Mizoram due to the escalating violence in Manipur. The PAMRA, which represents the erstwhile Mizo National Party’s underground armed wing, has issued a statement urging Meiteis residing in Mizoram to leave the state for their own safety. The situation has become tense due to violent acts committed by certain individuals in Manipur, which have deeply hurt the sentiments of the Mizo community. The PAMRA emphasized that if any violence were to happen to Meiteis in Mizoram, they themselves would be held responsible. The appeal is not intended as a warning, but rather a normal request to avoid any unfortunate incidents. The appeal comes in the aftermath of a disturbing incident in Manipur that garnered widespread outrage after a video of two Kuki women allegedly being paraded naked and molested by Meitei mobs went viral. Despite the reassurances, some Meiteis have already decided to leave Mizoram. Notably, 65 individuals departed for Manipur by flight, and all tickets for the next Aizawl-Imphal flight on Monday have been booked. The situation remains delicate as efforts are being made to pacify the unrest and ensure the safety of all communities involved. The Mizos of Mizoram share a close ethnic bond with the Kuki-Zomis of Manipur and have been closely monitoring the situation in the neighboring state. Since the violence began on May 3, around 12,584 Kuki-Zomi people from Manipur have sought refuge in Mizoram. There are approximately 2,000 Meitei individuals residing in Aizawl, including government employees, students, and workers.
