Manipur: Why Tangkhul Nagas are protesting the commemoration of the ‘Anglo-Kuki War’
By Scroll 15-Oct-2019
- The centenary commemoration of the Anglo-Kuki War, has run into trouble with Tangkhul Naga groups.
- The Tangkhul NagaLong has said the inscription was “objectionable and unacceptable” as the Kukis were not “indigenous” to Manipur.
- The Kukis and the Tangkhuls, one of the 16 major Naga tribes, have long had an antagonistic relationship.
- Large swathes of what the Kukis claim to be their homeland overlap with Greater Nagaland or Nagalim.
- On October 13, Manipur’s chief secretary wrote to the police, asking for the “objectionable memorials” to be “removed immediately”.
