“It has come to our attention that the Kukis have included some of the 251 Meitei Churches that were burned and dismantled during the current communal violence between the Meitei and Kuki communities in the list of Kuki churches,” MCCCM said in a press release.

While the Meitei Churches said the petitioner should be held responsible for any consequences that may arise from the inclusion of Meitei churches without the consent of the individual churches, it “strongly condemned MTFD’s attempt to align the Meitei churches with the Kukis in the aforementioned writ petition.”
