BCM celebrates pre-Christmas

Nagaland News

Dimapur, December 22: The Bharatiya Christian Manch (BCM) Nagaland state on Tuesday celebrated pre-Christmas here at Hotel Saramati, Dimapur in the presence of BJP National Vice President and Advisor BCM Dr. M Chuba Ao and representatives of different communities of Dimapur. The event was held under the theme “For into us a child is born”.
BCM is the preamble of love, peace, and harmony among the brotherhood of India, according to Ao, who claims that it was founded five years ago by a few people with a vision of honouring India’s diversity.
He claimed that warring with other religions to prove dominance simply causes division within one’s own religion. He stated that BCM faces a herculean challenge in constructing a bridge for supremacy, peace, and harmony, and that the people of India may learn from Nagaland about how peacefully people here coexist with love, peace, and harmony.
“Good will” is the most significant factor that links people as it is transferred from one to individual as it accommodates into “Peace,” according to Fr CP Anto, Director of the Peace Channel, who also spoke during the show.
He stated that everyone is formed in God’s image, but that we receive too many labels during our lives, but that underlying all of the tags, everyone is the same, and that there is a need to celebrate diversity. He said that religious tolerance is the need of the hour, pointing out that Nagaland is the best and model state for it.
He hoped that in 2022, no one would die in the name of religion, and that everyone would rise above party politics and respect one another, thus serving as a messenger of peace and tolerance.
Rev. AT Patton delivered the Christmas message at the programme. The occasion was chaired by BCM Nagaland executive member O Atila Phom, with Dimapur Phom Baptist Church, Burma camp pastor Hamba Namdakly offering the invocation prayer.
Earlier, during welcome address BCM Nagaland convenor Er Longshi Kikon revealed that BCM was started in Nagaland in the month of March 2021. He emphasised the essential goal of BCM is to act as a bridge between people of different religions, castes, and traditions.
