Opposition furious over video of women being paraded naked in Manipur, said- PM Modi’s silence is shameful
The fire of violence in Manipur has not cooled down yet that a video of two Kuki tribal women being paraded naked is going viral on social media. Many leaders including Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra have given their response on this. This viral video is being told of May 4.
It is located in Kangpokpi district, 35 km from Imphal, the capital of Manipur. Action is being demanded after the video surfaced. In the case, the police say that the accused will be arrested soon, an FIR has been registered.
At the same time, in this case, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra tweeted that the pictures of sexual violence against women coming from Manipur are heart-wrenching. The amount of condemnation of this horrific incident of violence against women is less. Women and children have to bear the maximum brunt of violence in the society. We must all condemn the violence in one voice while furthering the efforts for peace in Manipur. Why is the Central Government, the Prime Minister sitting blind to the violent incidents in Manipur? Do such pictures and violent incidents not disturb them?
On this matter, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that the silence of PM Narendra Modi on Manipur is creating chaos. India will not remain silent till the Idea of India is attacked. We stand with the people of Manipur. Peace is the only way forward.
At the same time, Pradyot Bikram Deb Burma, President of Tripura Party Motha, said that this matter is disturbing. Mobs carrying away naked women, hatred has won in Manipur.
Shiv Sena UBT Rajya Sabha MP Priyanka Chaturvedi said on this video that came in Manipur that she just saw a disturbing scene of a woman being paraded naked in Manipur. This silence on the ongoing violence and caste based insults is absolutely shameful. The PM did not speak, will the WCD minister do?
What is Manipur violence after all?
Let us tell you that since May 3, ethnic clashes broke out between two tribal communities Meitei and Kuki in Manipur. There are some special laws regarding tribals in Manipur, under which they can live in hilly areas. On the other hand, due to non-availability of Scheduled Tribe status to Meitei community, they cannot settle in hilly areas. For which the Meitei community is demanding to get itself a Scheduled Caste status.
