Silchar: The Barak Manipur Friendship Association strongly condemned the inhuman killing of two young souls Hijam Linthoingambi and Phijam Hemanjit, said a press note issued by its president Biswadeep Gupta. It further said the heinous crime was committed by those people who have no basic humanity in them.
Calling on the security agencies to nab the culprits at the earliest, it said that those responsible should be given a befitting punishment in accordance with the law of the land and the investigating agencies should nab the culprit at the earliest.
It has become very clear that such an act cannot be committed by any ‘Indian’ national whatever may be their criminal mindset set be but was committed as a part of a pogrom designed by illegal immigrants intended to occupy and infiltrate the land of this great nation called ‘Bharat’.
“We also understand and sympathise with our bright student community who have come out in large numbers in Imphal and adjoining valley area to protest against this ghastly act of these ‘cowards’. Our student community has all the right to protest against the happening and it is but only a normal process in democracy”, it continued.
It is a matter of great concern for us what we witnessed in the last few days, the brutal force used by security forces to control the protest demonstration by students. The use of excessive force, as well as pallets guns, and live bullets, that too from close range speaks volumes of insensitivity and lack of strategic techniques by our security forces.
“We strongly condemn such ghastly action by security forces, and consider it as ‘suppression of our basic democratic rights’. Either the force is ‘ill trained’ to handle the situation or has ‘ill intention’ to suppress people’s voices”.
Calling on both Central and State Governments to introspect, investigate and give compensation for the incident it said the government must ensure that such acts are not repeated upon any citizen of this country.
“We strongly once again condemn the failure of governance and shall be bound to take democratic steps as our future course of action.
