Responding to the clarification issued by Padmashree Sentila T Yanger of INTACH on May 11 last, the Dimapur Molungkimong Senso Union (DMSU) queried on how the ‘first ever Christian Church building constructed by Dr E W Clark’ as stated on March 13 had been nonchalantly replaced to ‘church site dedication by Dr E W Clark’ in their July 1 clarification without any appended explanation. The union further reminded that their real concern has been and is still over the misleading and historically distorting claim made by INATCH and MBA.
DMSU further reiterated that the first ever church site dedication and construction was made by Rev Dr E W Clark in 1872 at Molungkimong, four years prior to the church site dedication at Molungyimsen.
Expressing disappointment, DMSU added that the INTACH has failed to give proper clarification over their previous presentation of false fact. They also stated that it was an apparent insincerity and collaborative motive of INTACH Nagaland Chapter with some vested interest people to wipe out the genuine historical facts of the advent of Christianity to Nagaland, which cannot be tolerated.
