The violence in India's north eastern state Manipur that has claimed six lives so far has "surprisingly" raised a major concern in Pakistan. Hundreds of users in the neighbouring country took to Twitter to comment on the issue with hashtag #ManipurBurning.

After violence flared up in Manipur on Monday evening, an indefinite curfew was imposed in the state.

Houses of a minister and other lawmakers were torched the same evening in Churachandpur town over passage of three bills in Manipur Assembly. At least eight people were reported injured in arson attacks.

#ManipurBurning has been on the top Twitter trends in Pakistan since Tuesday morning. From blaming the Modi government to the RAW chief Ajit Doval, Twitterati in Pakistan asked the Manipur residents to call for freedom from India.

Some of them even came up with a theory that most residents of Manipur have ancestors in North Korea and hence the Kim Jong Un government must come to the aide of the Indian state.

Commenting about the "overwhelming" response  from Pakistan, some Twitter handles joked that seeing the Pakistanis' concern Manipur has decided to join the country.
