The plight of Reangs of Mizoram who consider themselves Hindus

  • tags: no_tag

    • The Central and Tripura governments have asked Mizoram to resolve the long-standing deadlock on the repatriation of 35,000 Reang refugees to the state, said Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar.

      The Reang tribal refugees, locally called Bru, have also sought Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s intervention to solve the 12-year-old ethnic crisis in Mizoram, bordering Myanmar and Bangladesh.
    • The tribal refugees’ repatriation from Tripura to Mizoram has further turned complicated with violent mobs in the western Mizoram burning down around 490 houses of Reang tribals following the gunning down of a Mizo youth.

      Following the arson and subsequent ethnic trouble, around 5,000 displaced Reang tribals have taken shelter in adjacent southern Assam and in northern Tripura. Most of the displaced men, women and children are still living either in the jungle or under the open sky.

      Over 35,000 Reang tribal refugees have been living in six north Tripura camps since 1997 after they fled Mizoram following ethnic clashes with the majority Mizos after the killing of a Mizo forest official.
    • Riangs, like Kashmiri Hindus, have been hounded out of Mizoram, a Christian majority state, for refusing to convert to christianism superstitious belief and escape mainly Christian missionary-backed atrocities. In 1997, ethnic cleansing of Reangs, 45,000 were forced (Organizer) into Tripura by Christian terrorists. In this year 2009, the Christian fanatics have again forced 5,000 Reangs to flee to neighbouring Tripura.

      Media is terming this an ethnic problem but a similar ethnic problem in Kandhamal was never written as one even though it was an ethnic problem too. This is a lie, it is Christian terrorism against minority Hindus in their state which is being white washed as an ethnic problem to hide the vile agenda of Christian terrorists.
