Although the bourgeois media describes the conflict in Manipur as a rivalry between different religious and ethnic groups, the struggle in Manipur actually has a strong class character. The revolutionary news website "The Red Herald" describes the background of the current conflict in an article in which it states:" Regarding the sides involved in the struggle, mainly are two:
On the one hand, there is the bureaucratic capitalist class and the big landlords, interested in take of the lands of the peasantry. They belong to the tribe Meitei and they are mainly Hindu. They have the resources of the Indian State, and they always ruled the State of Manipur, no matter with which political party, and for this, they are able to make big deployments of police forces in order to expel the peasants from their lands (...) Besides the State repressive forces, these dominant classes also have made their own militias and groups of thugs, and they are using these ones as a head of spear against the peasantry which want to expel from their lands.“ The Red Herald continous to explain:“ On the other hand, there is the peasantry, who is defending itself against the attempts of expel and the aggression of the bourgeoisie and the big landlords. The peasantry is mainly gathered in two tribal groups, the Kuki and the Naga, and they are mainly Christians. They live mainly in the hills.” Coming to the conclusion that: “We can see a main contradiction in this struggle, and is the contradiction between peasantry and feudality. The mass media are explaining this struggle as a simple tribal or religious conflict, and the State states that all the situation is returning to normalcy, and the riots has being made by troublemakers. But all of this is unmask the reality because the key of these facts is the struggle for the land, the contradiction between peasantry and bureaucratic capitalist class and big landlords. The peasant masses are struggling and resisting the attacks from the Indian State and the ruling classes, and they are confronting directly with them.”
