After Brinda, Babloo Loitongbam apologize

A day after former IPS Th. Brinda had tendered an apology to the Arambai Tenggol and the Meitei Leepun, Human Rights activist Babloo Loitongbam also said sorry in connection to his statement in a news portal interview.
Babloo uploaded his clarification through a video clip recorded by him after his residential office of Human Rights Alert (HA) at Kwaikeithel Thiyam Leikai was vandalized by a group of unknown persons at around 6 p.m. yesterday. Earlier yesterday, a large number of people belonging to the Meitei Leepun and the Arambai Tenggol thronged to the residence of Thounaojam Brinda at Yaiskul Janmasthan in Imphal West and made her tender apology in connection with her speech at which she points finger to Meitei Leepun and Arambai Tenggol as the main organization that incites the ongoing conflict.
Babloo Loitongbam in his video stated that he had wrongly stated that Meitei Leepun and the Arambai Tenggol as a new organization working in the line of the RSS. He said that he had unverified reports of the two organizations and that he said that his statement in a news portal ‘newclick’ was withdrawn. He also said that he had wrongly stated that all churches in Imphal had been destroyed adding that there are many churches belonging to Naga that still stand in Imphal.
Mentioned may be made that around 20 to 30 people came in two four-wheeler vehicles at around 6 pm to the official residence of Babloo Loitongbam and vandalized the office along with a four-vehicle parked inside his premises. That time Babloo is out of the station. Police had taken up a suo moto case in connection with the attack.
Earlier, the Meitei Leepun had banned both Th. Brinda and Babloo Loitongbam from speaking in public till the ongoing crisis between the Kuki and the Meitei is over.
Meanwhile, the UN Human Rights Council has urged the government authority to protect Babloo Loitngbam, his family and his home. In a message at X (Twitter) the UN Human Rights wrote – “#India: We are alarmed by threats to human rights defender Babloo Loitongbam by Meitei Leepun & Arambai Tenggol groups in #Manipur for speaking out on inter-communal violence since May. We urge authorities to protect him, his family & home, & hold perpetrators accountable.”
