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.
