Imphal, July 21:
United Chongthas while condemning the viral video that depicts the brute acts of a mob to the modesty of women said that not all the Meitei should be blamed of the tragic incident as there are some few rowdies among many. For so long the Prime Minister of India remained silent as he could not find anything to blame the Meitei for the ongoing violence. It was only after a mistake was found that the PM finally broke silent to the violence of Manipur. It was like Archimedes running out of his bath tub shouting “Eureka, Eureka”.
“It would be wrong to assume all the people as mindless because as per media reports some Meitei people have tried to rescue those victim women”, a statement by United Chongthas said. It added that there were incidents where a few personnel of the Indian Army raped, killed, and molested many women of Manipur under the shadow of the AFSPA. Even there were reports of looting valuables from lockers by the army personnel during search operations conducted against the insurgencies. Saying so it does not spoil the image of the whole Indian Army, the Chongthas said. It said that not all the Sikh communities are against India after the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was killed by two Sikhs. “When Godse shot Mahatama Gandhi he too had a reason for his act”, the Chonthas said.
The Chongthas further questioned the motive behind the uploading of the video after 2/3 months after the incident. The statement also said that the Prime Minister finally broke his silence after the surfacing of the viral video. It showed that the PM remained silent for so long as he could not find anything to blame the Meitei community since the outbreak of the violence in Manipur on May 3.
