WMC campaign to Review & Rectify UN press release on Manipur issue closed

Petition Campaign organized by the World Meetei Council to Review and rectify UN Press Release on Manipur Issue closed yesterday by observing a formal closing function – online, attended by our brothers and sisters from America, Asia, Australia, and Europe.
The World Meetei Council is an organisation of the Meeteis in India and Meetei diaspora around the world, including numerous concerned individuals from various communities had launched the campaign to amplify a collective voice representing hundreds of thousands of individuals seeking a re-evaluation and amendment of the UN press release to ensure a more equitable and comprehensive understanding of the issue.
WMC expresses its profound gratitude to all our brothers sisters and friends who had made this journey meaningful by successfully recording 118,900+ online signatures from 88 countries spreading across five continents, in the midst of an active internet ban in Manipur.
A statement of the WMC said, “This shows how deeply we are concerned about the UN Human Rights Commission’s act of injustice against the indigenous people of Manipur. However, we are optimistic that the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights will now re-assess the biased press release issued by the Special Mandate Holders. Our voice must not go unheard. It is evident that the overwhelming support stems from the collective disappointment that the United Nations has seemingly endorsed the global propaganda of the Kuki community by unjustly favoring them due to their Christian religion, minority, and victimhood claim.
The WMC said that the press release lacks balance and impartiality, potentially perpetuating a divisive narrative.
The petition disputes several points raised in the press release, including the portrayal of the conflict as religious, gender-based, incited by hate speech, the characterization of the Kuki community as an ethnic minority, and their portrayal as victims. It sheds light on the complex dynamics of the conflict, emphasizing the Meetei community’s status as the indigenous and endangered community in India. The petition addresses the grave consequences of the alleged ethnic cleansing of Meeteis in ChinKuki-dominated districts on May 3, 2023, marking the onset of the ongoing Manipur violence. Additionally, it exposes the primary cause of the issue as alleged illicit plans, actions, and aggression associated with ChinKuki narco-terrorist groups, their political representatives, and militant factions operating under Suspension of Operations (SoO) agreements with the government, all motivated by the common goal of establishing a separate nation, “Zale’ngam”.
