Taking serious note of the prevailing situation in Orissa, particularly in three districts, where Christians have become victims of communal hatred, the North East India Christian Council (NEICC) has asked the Centre to intervene and defuse the prevailing tension. In a statement issued here today, the Working Committee of the NEICC also urged the Orissa government to immediately take appropriate steps to bring back normalcy, initiate confidence building measures and even bring in para-military forces to maintain law and order. Urging the Congress-led UPA government to immediately intervene and defuse the situation and remove irritants to peace and communal harmony, the Council said the National Human Rights Commission and the National Commission on Minorities should take immediate appropriate steps to prevent another genocide and that Christians in Orissa and other states do not any more fall prey to sinister communal designs. Meanwhile, NEICC also expressed its concern at the unfortunate murder of Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati, VHP leader.
