The number of people killed or displaced on either side is itself a contentious issue between the two groups. Nearly two decades later, the significance of Black Day now evokes different responses. The Kuki Inpi Manipur KIMthe apex Kuki civil body in Manipur, for instance, believes that observing the day is the least that can be done for the victims in the absence of any redress by the Central or State governments.
The two apex bodies met twice on March 29, and on April 4, On the other hand, a section of the Kuki population including an armed group, the United Kuki Liberation Front UKLFhas demanded that the annual commemoration must stop. In the last few years, the UKLF has publicly stated that the commemoration brings more harm than good to the society.
In a statement released on September 6, the UKLF once again appealed "to the Kuki brethren not to observe September 13 as Kuki Black Day since [this] will only prolong the remembrance of those ugly days and it can affect permanent peace in the society. For instance, the Meitieis, the majority ethnic group of Manipur, observe June 18 every year as "The Great June Uprising of ," to remember the death of 18 people at the hands of security forces for the cause of Manipur's territorial integrity.
Similarly, the Nagas have begun the annual commemoration of the death of two students on May 6,in a clash with Manipur security forces along the Nagaland border during a protest against the Manipur government's refusal to permit NSCN-IM leader Thuingaleng Muivah's plan to visit his home in Somtal village in Ukhrul district.
Though the three incidents are different, the fundamental issue common to all is the question of territory. The Kukis and the Nagas want their own territories carved out of Manipur, which the Meiteis oppose. Since the Central government is engaged with both Kuki and Naga armed groups at different levels, it has the leverage and resources to facilitate such dialogue between the two ethnic groups.
Shambhu Singh, Joint Secretary North EastMinistry of Home Affairs, and in-charge of the Union government's talks with the Kuki armed groups, was the District Commissioner of Tamenglong district during the time of the September 13 violence; he must be well aware of the complexities of the situation.
Black Day is largely a consequence of violent and competing identity politics and overlapping ethnic territorial claims. Addressing one group's problem at the expense of the other's can only exacerbate the conundrum.
