Country ashamed on Women paraded naked in Manipur, PM Modi

The video of two women purportedly being paraded naked in public by a group of men in Manipur has been viral in social media since Wednesday.

People within and beyond India are infuriated over such heinous crime. The women seen in the video had also allegedly been raped.

Commenting on a video a day after, Narndra Modi, Prime Minister of India said “The incident that has come to light in Manipur is a shameful incident for any civilized society. The entire country is shamed… all the 140 crore people are feeling ashamed due to this. I appeal to all chief ministers across the country to strengthen laws to take stringent action against crime, especially against our mothers and daughters”, according to The Print.

Speaking at the outset of the monsoon session of Parliament, PM Modi has for the first time broken his silence over the ongoing Manipur row. However, he made no mention of the ethnic clashes, it said further.

‘Ethnic clashes between Manipur’s tribal Kuki and non-tribal Meitei communities erupted on 3 May, following a ‘Tribal Solidarity March’ taken out to oppose the demand for inclusion of Meiteis in the Scheduled Tribe (ST) category and for what was described as an effort to secure the rights and constitutional safeguards of the ethnic Kuki and their sub-tribes. According to police data, the violence has so far claimed over 157 lives and displaced more than 50,000’.
