Imphal, Jan 13,
A sit in protest was staged today against the detention of Wangkhem Kishorechandra under NSA at Kwakeithel Mayai Koibi.
Renowned Human Rights activists Babloo Loitongbam, who attended the protest appealed the people to ponder upon on why Kishorechandra had used such an aggressive words in the viral video which he had uploaded.
“People need to question the reason behind the aggressive words which Kishorechandra had uploaded in social media”, Babloo said.
The sit-in-protest staged was organized jointly by Pakhangba Cultural Club (PCC), Mayai Koibi Development Association, Mayai Koibi Mamang Leikai Development Association and the Meira Paibis of the area.
Babloo further said that even though Kishorechandra spoke in vulgar way the quantum of punishment that he receives is way beyond what he deserves.
He added that the habitual mistakes done by the Chief Minister of the state will surely hurt rational being and will have a natural reaction against him. He also recalled the controversial speech of CM in Madhavpur at which he connected the region with Mahabarata distorting the history of Manipur.
He further said that the agenda of the RSS, the core of BJP, is its Hindutva where small groups of indigenous people were made to submerge into one culture or religion.
“Political leaders of the state were also trapped in this ideology of Hindi, Hindu and Hindustan”, Babloo added that the reason behind the aggressive words of Kishorechandra will surely be a loathing expression against the domination of smaller community by larger ones.
Even though reasonable restriction is added in the freedom of expression, the restriction should be proportionate and necessity, he added that.
“National Security Act is a draconian and a black law which is against the humanitarian law”, the Human Rights activist said
He finally appealed the masses to start a movement against this black law where anyone can be arrested arbitrarily and added that the case of Kishorchandra’s detention should be made an issue in the upcoming Lok Sabha election.
Vice President of MSAD Furkan Makakmayum said that the government is for the people and they should hear the voices of the many or else they should step aside, the people have also that right. The people should also ask questions against them. And also he questions what kinds of democracy it is where thousands were killed by the previous Congress government and many were arrested even for speaking and giving criticism in this BJP led government.
He also appealed the masses and the women folks to put in the agenda for the election to stand against such injustice.
