New Delhi: In view of the ongoing communal clashes in Lower Assam, the Hmar Students’ Association (HSA) in a press release expressed deep concern on the escalation of ethnic violence between the Bodo tribals and Muslim community in Lower Assam since last week. The ethnic violence has already resulted in the lost of many innocent lives, destruction of property, uprooting of many homes and displacing thousands of persons.

The student body also appeals to both sides to show utmost restraint and to try to resolve the ethnic conflict on humanitarian considerations.

The Information Secretary, Mr. Lalremlien Hmar said “violence is never a lasting solution, we earnestly appeal for an amicable settlement of the conflict”.

He also further stated that, “apart from emphasizing the urgent need for providing food and shelter, rehabilitation and resettlement of those affected by the conflict, the Hmar Students’ Association (HSA) also urges the Government of Assam and the Government of India to immediately take pro-active steps to stop not only the ethnic conflict but also to effectively address the factors that triggered the mayhem”.
