New Delhi: Strongly condemning the gruesome attacks by Kuki militants on Meitei Samaj and their places of worship in Manipur, the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) called for peace in Manipur and for restoration of the damaged temples.

While releasing district wise list of selected grand temples of Meitei samaj in Manipur hills, either burnt or destroyed during the clashes, the national secretary general of VHP Milind Parande demanded action against the anti national forces. He said here on Monday that the VHP was already serving the affected people and called upon the Hindu society to come forward to rebuild these temples.

Appealing for peace in the area, he warned against spreading false narrative that only the Churches had been attacked and released the list of 11 big temples that have been destroyed, comprising 4 temples of Tengaupal and Morech, 3 of Tipaimukh Churchanpur and 4 of Chingoi Ching Imphal East, is not the exhaustive one.

Milind Parande also said that during the unfortunate clashes between the two communities, many State properties have been destroyed. 

VHP appealed that Peace and restraint must be exercised and the anti-national and anti-social elements must be controlled. Elements and organisations trying to disrupt peace in the region must be taken to task strictly, he quipped.
