Meitei Pangals or Muslims in the state has been continually condemning acts of terrorism perpetrated in the name of Islam, and will continue to do so while defending the pristine image and principles of the religion. This was stated in a press release signed by Ym. Latiful, General Secretary of Meira Paibi Development Association, Oinam Sawombung Imphal Barrage. Refuting the reports of one Saifulla Islam, apprehended by Imphal West police commando from Oinam Sawombung area ON 13/12 2015 of being an active member of ISI, the release further mentioned that the locality, being small, the residents are well known to one another and that the allegations are false and malicious. Raising questions as to why such a serious matter has been kept out of the reach of other media houses and the failure of the police to produce the documents alleged to have been recovered from the person, Latiful declared that no social organisations will harbour any outlaw or anti-social elements in the area, promising the help and assistance of the organisations in clearing the area of such individuals if specific informations are provided to them. He also appealed for everyone to refrain from spreading malicious rumours and false news and tarnishing the image of the small community.
