IMPHAL, Sept 1: Boxing star M C Mary Kom has sought the
intervention of Union Home Minister Amit Shah to ensure
“security forces prevent both warring groups from intrusion to
Kom villages in Manipur.”
In a letter to Shah on Thursday she said the Kom community is
an indigenous tribe of Manipur and one of the smallest among
the minorities.
“We are all dispersed between the two rivalling communities…
there are always speculations and doubts against my
community from both sides, and are caught in the middle of all
problems… due to weak internal administration and tiny size as
a community among the minority tribes, we have not been able
to stand against any forces that intrude into our jurisdiction.
“We seek the help of the security forces to prevent both
warring groups from intrusion into Kom villages,” the Padma
Vibhushan awardee said.
The former Rajya Sabha member requested all the deployed
members of the Indian Army, Paramilitary, and state forces to
be impartial in carrying out their responsibilities to safeguard
the population and to be successful in maintaining peace and
normalcy in the state.

Kom also urged everyone in Manipur especially Meiteis and
Kuki Zo to join together, set aside their differences and restore
peace and normalcy to the state.
“We all need to co-exist, so let’s put our differences and
wounds aside,” she added. (PTI)
