Mizoram Church Leaders Urges People not to Observe Yoga Day

Aizawl (northeasttoday): A conglomeration of Mizoram’s church leaders has appealed to all Mizo Christians not to observe the International Day of Yoga, planned for this Sunday. A brief statement from the Mizoram Kohhran Hruaitu Committee (Mizoram Church Leader’s Committee) or MKHC said it finds it extremely regrettable that the day has been scheduled to clash with a holy day for Christians.

“We appeal to all Mizo Christians to not observe the International Day of Yoga,” the MKHC said. Church leaders in Mizoram had earlier submitted a memorandum to BJP President Amit Shah when he visited the state in mid-April.

In that memorandum, the MKHC protested against the designation of December 25 (Christmas) as Good Governance Day and the calling of a meeting of various Judges of the Supreme Court and High Courts on Good Friday, which this year fell on April
