The Khasi Jaintia Christian Leaders Forum has appealed for calm and restraint from members of all communities and organisations following the tragedy of the Mukroh Massacre.
The KJCLF said through a press release today that it “shares the sad torment of the bereaved families affected by the recent tragedies at Mukhroh village and the agony of the communities and groups who have reacted in diverse ways at different locations in the past few days.”
People looking for an explanation, solution and justice must understand that these “cannot be obtained by violence and unruly activities,” KJCLF secretary Rev EH Kharkongor said. “Great unease has been caused to normal livelihood activities and especially to students with their studies and exams. Those miscreants who taint and spoil the name and dignity of the movements for justice should be brought to book.”
At the same time, the KJCLF also called on the state government to show its efficiency and compassion as it follows up on the solutions to bring back normalcy as quickly as possible.
