Dimapur, August 12 (EMN): Tangkhul Christian Fellowship Delhi (TCFD) through its Chairman R. A. Worso Zimik stated “it has compelled to come out with this statement after learning the sad incident of the denial of burial of late Rita Haorei at her native village, Leingangching. Zimik said it was unfortunate to see the growing religious intolerance in the Tangkhul society even after having embraced Christianity for more than a century.
‘That instead of upholding Christian values of tolerance, brotherhood, sorority and mutual respect, the recent incident at Leingangching has revealed the ugly face of the monster in us’, he added. The Fellowship said that having parochial tenets of “One village one Religion/Denomination” negates the very principles of secular, democratic and progressive society. It must be reiterated that the denial of decent burial to a fellow human being reflects the utter disregard and disrespect for the basic and inherent human dignity and rights. The Fellowship has condemned the present incident and urge upon every right thinking individual to rise above sectarian and parochial mind-set and respect one’s right to freedom of conscience. The Fellowship further stated that it was a call to every prudent Tangkhul to transcend “the narrow domestic walls” that has engulfed their society.
