Imphal, Aug 25: The August 16 bomb blast at the Mani Mandir of ISKCON, Imphal in which five persons were killed and over 50 persons were injured as well as the August 20 firing at a Church in Churachandpur district killing one worshipper on the spot and injuring five others continue to be flayed by many.

In a heart touching statement, Kuki Baptist Convention (KBC), one of the largest Christian organisations of the Kuki community, said such attacks at religious places could have never been carried out by any religious persons.

The main mission in life of the religious people is to guide and lead the people on the right path.

It is their duties to win over the heart of the people with good advice and wisdom.

But the manner of attacking religious places and killing innocent believers shows that perpetrators of the crimes do not any human emotion in their heart, the statement signed by mission secretary of KBC, Imphal Dr P Chongloi said.

While pointing out the recent attack at ISKCON and at a Church in Venguam area of Churchandpur district are not the first instances of its kind, the statement appealed to the perpetrators of the crime for sanity and leave the religious places in peace.

Meanwhile, in condemnation of the terror attack at ISKCON, Maharaj Garibaniwaj Memorial Club, Wangkhei Ningthem Pukhri Mapal organised a sit-in-protest demonstration in front of the office of the club from 10 am to 3.30 pm today.

Around 300 people including local Meira Paibis, volunteers of LCP and CBSED and students of Royal Academy of Science participated in the protest.

Kangabam Leikai Apunba Nupi Marup and Young Development Union Club, Wangoi also staged similar protest demonstration in their respective local areas to protest the attack at religious places.

In condemnation of the attack at ISKCON, Nupee Chaokhat Thourang Lup, Sunusiphai also organised a protest session along with Samchetsabam Manglembi Devi and Haobijam Premila Devi who were among those who sustained injuries in the attack.

The session also condoled the death of five innocent devotees in the attack.
