Imphal, July 15: A hate mongering video which went viral on social networking site Facebook and WhatsApp is likely to breach bondage of brotherhood between majority Meitei and the minority Muslim community in the state. The video was seen uploaded some few months back but no government authority including the Cyber Crime Unit of the state government has taken up any suo motto case despite knowing that such video has the tendency to incite communal enmity between the two communities. This was confirmed by Imphal Times reporter, when inquired to the officials of the Cyber Crime Unit Imphal West as well as to the Officer-in-Charge of Lilong police station.
The video is suspected to have been uploaded from an area which is under the jurisdiction of Lilong Police Station. 
In the 6 minutes, 2 Second long video, a Muslim (Meitei Pangaal) girl who had eloped with a boy belonging to another community (probably) Meitei community was seen brutally assaulted using a cane by a cleric of Muslim belonging to civil body ANJUMAN.
The video also showed the Muslim cleric rebuking the girl terming the act of eloping with a Meitei Kafir by overlooking ‘the beautiful Islam religion’ terming it as for her ‘sinful’.
The Muslim cleric, who donned a loincloth and banyan, also said that as per the doctrines of Islam she could be killed for eloping with her lover who allegedly belongs to Meitei community of Manipur.
After delivering some religious values to the girls, he demanded apology from the girl and she was beaten up while other males were seen seating around her inside a room.
In this connection, Imphal Times contacted Cyber Crime Branch Department of Manipur Police enquiring about any investigation about the video. However, it has been informed that no case has been registered till today, said In-charge of Cyber Crime Branch of Manipur Police, Imphal West District, S Ibomcha.
Meanwhile, social activist Neken Seram, in a Facebook post reacted that Manipur Police acted very swift, and even bypassed legal procedure in the case of JCILPS Convenor Khomdram Ratan. On the basis of a photograph uploaded in Social Media, the State Police not only filed an FIR, but also announced cash rewards for a person who was not absconding at the moment. Now, in this video, a woman is being harassed for eloping to a Meitei.
“The video mongers communal ideas,  undemocratic, violates human right and amounts to cruelty to woman, said the activist while adding that it is likely to create enmity between religious groups and against Constitution of India”, Neken, a member of CWC Imphal East and former editor of Hueiyen Lanpao English Daily wrote.
He also demanded that why the Manipur Government does not take up a suo-motto case against the perpetrators on the basis of this video?
Other commentator’s condemn the act and some even started targeting the Muslim brethren after witnessing the inhuman assault.
Imphal Times had earlier brought up the issue through our Editorial column under the title “Macabre Messiah” on June 24, 2016.
