Indigenous Tribal Leaders’ Forum Condemns Horrific Molestation and Gang-Rape of Zomi-Kuki Tribal Women in Manipur
Manipur | In a shocking incident that has sent shockwaves across the nation, a distressing video has surfaced on social media, revealing the horrifying molestation and subsequent gang-rape of two Zomi-Kuki tribal women in Manipur. The Indigenous Tribal Leaders’ Forum (ITLF) has vehemently condemned the heinous act and called for immediate justice and peace for the affected community.
The incident, which took place on May 4 in the Kangpokpi district, exposes the appalling behavior of a radical group within the Meitei community. In the video, a large mob can be seen parading the two Kuki-Zo sisters naked towards a paddy field, where they were subjected to unspeakable acts of violence. The victims’ helplessness is evident as they are surrounded by more than 20 individuals who engaged in inhumane behavior, including inappropriate touching.
The trauma inflicted upon these innocent women is beyond comprehension. Such acts of brutality raise serious questions about the perpetrators’ humanity and the need for urgent action to prevent further violence against marginalized communities. The pain experienced by the victims and their families is unimaginable, and it is our collective responsibility to stand against such atrocities.
The Indigenous Tribal Leaders’ Forum has strongly condemned the incident, emphasizing the need for immediate intervention by the central and state governments, the National Commission for Women, and the National Commission for Scheduled Tribes. The ITLF demands that the authorities take swift action to identify and apprehend the culprits responsible for this heinous crime.
Furthermore, the ITLF calls for a united front against the radical and inhumane elements within the Meitei community. This incident has highlighted the urgent need for separate administration for the Zomi-Kuki tribe, as coexistence with such individuals has become increasingly untenable. The demand for a separate administration is now stronger than ever, as it promises to ensure the safety, security, and well-being of the affected community.
The Indigenous Tribal Leaders’ Forum urges the central and state governments to take cognizance of this brutal offense and bring the perpetrators to justice swiftly. The sharing of the video on social media, which exposes the identity of the victims, further exacerbates the ordeal suffered by these innocent women. The privacy and dignity of the survivors must be protected, and the dissemination of such distressing content should be strictly prohibited.
In the face of this appalling act, it is essential that society unites to condemn violence and discrimination against marginalized communities. Let us raise our voices collectively to demand justice, peace, and an end to such atrocities. It is only through unity and solidarity that we can hope to create a society where every individual is treated with respect, dignity, and equality.
The ITLF stands firm in its commitment to supporting the Zomi-Kuki community during this challenging time and will continue to advocate for their rights, safety, and well-being. Together, let us strive for a society free from violence and injustice, where all individuals can live with peace and harmony.
