Mukroh village in Meghalaya

The Khasi Jaintia Christian Leaders Forum (KJCLF) has appealed to all members of different communities and organizations to uphold calm and restrain in their quest for a solution which cannot be obtained through violence and unruly activities.

This appeal came after Meghalaya had witnessed a series of agitations following the killing of five villagers in a firing at Mukroh village in West Jaintia Hills district on November 22.

In a statement, the KJCLF said it “shares the sad torment” of the bereaved families affected by the recent tragedies at Mukroh village and the agony of the communities and groups who have reacted in diverse ways at different locations in the past few days.

It has also noted that this anguish has led to disruptive and violent agitations.

“The KJCLF appeals to all members of different communities and organisations in our state and beyond to uphold calm and restraint in their quest for a solution – which cannot be obtained by violence and unruly activities,” the forum 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,” it added.
