A Chin sub-tribe group called Sukte in Tidim township, Chin state and other Chin sub-tribe group in Champhai, Mizoram northeast state of India were erected a pillar of reconciliation for the chaos of their ancestors’ period. A report said that the pillar was erected on 25 November 2015 in Khuangleng village, in order to reconcile between Laitui villagers in Tidim township and Khuangleng villagers in Champhai district.


In 1871, Sukte tribe Chief Pu Zapauva killed women villagers of Khuangleng and burnt their houses while their men villagers fighting with Indian invaders on the river bank of Tuirial, to protect their homeland. Khuangleng Chief Lal Thanhranga lost his wife and children on the hand of Pu Zapauva, Chief of Sukte tribe.


Laitui villagers believed that because of unfair deeds of Sukte tribe ancestors, Laitui village and its near villagers had faced rising dead in accident, rising death rate of youths, no educated youths and existing many social evils in the village till date, highlighted on Mizo speical report facebook.


Sukte tribe leaders, therefore, met with Khuangleng village leaders on 31st March 2015 to give forgiveness on their ancestors’ wrong deeds. Although the village leaders of Khuangleng had replied that they had already forgot the incident, they had agreed the request to erect a pillar of reconciliation between the two tribes made by Sukte tribes, and then they had erected the pillar in Khuangleng village.
