Indian Confederation of Ingenious and Tribal Peoples North East Zone (ICITP-NEZ) Nagaland State Level Committee (NSLC) has expressed deep shock over the recent ongoing community violence in Assam in the districts of Udalguri and Darrang, mostly populated by indigenous Bodo community, wherein more than 40 people were killed, about 100 injured and more than 150000 were displaced. A joint press release issued by the president Kolhi Weisah, general secretary Philip Lotha and treasurer Francis Kikon termed the incident as 'very unfortunate' that some 'unwanted alien-migrants' from neighboring country are trying to create havoc among the Bodo people and appealed the Government of Assam to take necessary measures to prevent further violence and also to provide relief, rehabilitation and compensation to the victims of the communal violence. The Indian Confederation also expressed its solidarity to those victimized during the course of the violence, and prayed for peace to prevail in the community. Further expressing shock over the 'subjugation and discrimination' against the Christians meted by some vested organization across the country during the last few months, the Confederation has also expressed regret that despite constitutional right to religion, many have fail to obliged by the fundamental duties and expressed sympathy to the victims under going the trauma.
