Appeal for Peace in Manipur

We, the undersigned academicians, research scholars and students in various institutions, express our deep concern at the recent news of violence that has been unleashed in Manipur. There are multiple reports of breaking of communal peace as well as utter failure of law and order in as many as eight districts of Manipur. This humanitarian crisis unfolding in Manipur is a matter of great concern for all of us. The reason of this violence is clearly the politics of divide and hatred that has been spreading all over India in recent times. This politics of hate can only be defeated with a greater solidarity for peace and humanism.

By the time of the drafting of the letter, article 355 has been already invoked in Manipur. As signatories of the letter, the following are our appeal to the government as well as the people.

We appeal to the Union government of India to take humane measures to stop the violence as well as ensure peace amongst various communities.

We appeal to the administration to secure the lives and properties of all citizens.

We appeal for communities to desist from targeting one another.

We request that there be a moratorium on contentious acts.

We request our community elders, church leader and members of civil society to initiate the process of dialogue in Manipur.
