In Manipur, the case of two women being paraded naked has come to light.

The government has taken a tough stand on the case of two women being paraded naked in Manipur. The government has ordered not to share the video on Twitter and other social media platforms. Also asked all social media platforms to follow the laws. The government says that the matter is still under investigation. In such a situation, no person should share the video related to this matter on social media.

May 4th event

Actually, Manipur is in the grip of ethnic violence these days, but now tension has spread in the hilly areas of Manipur over a video, in which two women are being paraded naked. According to reports, the video is from May 4 and both the women are from the Kuki community, while the men who are parading the women naked are all from the Meitei community. Tribal organization Indigenous Tribal Leaders Forum has demanded action against the culprits.

Rape and murder case registered

A case of kidnapping, gangrape and murder has been registered at Nongpok Sekmai police station in Thoubal district against unidentified armed miscreants, police said.

The opposition has become very active in this matter. The Congress on Thursday criticized the Center and asked when will the Narendra Modi government stop behaving like 'all is well'. Also wanted to know when Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh would be replaced.

77 days have passed since the horrific incident

Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh said it has been 78 days since the large-scale violence broke out in Manipur, while it has been 77 days since the horrific incident of women being paraded naked and allegedly raped. Ramesh further said that it has been more than two months since the FIR was registered against unknown persons and the culprits are still at large.

People unaware due to internet shutdown

He said that due to internet shutdown in the state, the people of the country had no idea that such a terrible incident had happened in Manipur. He said that it is absolutely unforgivable that the Women and Child Development Minister waited for 76 days to speak to the Manipur CM or make a statement on the matter.

Congress fired questions

The Congress leader further questioned whether the Central Government, the Home Minister or the Prime Minister were not aware of this? When will the Modi government stop pretending that ALL IS WELL? When will the Chief Minister of Manipur be removed? How many more such incidents have been suppressed? He said that the monsoon session is starting from today. INDIA will seek answers in this matter. Ramesh further said that break the silence, Prime Minister.

Rahul did this tweet

Regarding the viral video, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said on Wednesday that India's views are being attacked regarding the situation in Manipur and India will not remain silent. Rahul Gandhi tweeted that the Prime Minister's silence and inaction pushed Manipur towards anarchy. India's thoughts are being attacked, India will not remain silent. We are with the people of Manipur. We stand with them. Peace is the only way forward.

Now understand the whole controversy

Ethnic violence has been raging in Manipur since May 3. More than 150 people have lost their lives in the violence that has been going on for almost two and a half months. Whereas, many people are injured. In fact, the Meitei community is demanding Scheduled Tribe (ST) status, due to which the Kuki and Meitei communities have clashed. The Meitei people account for about 53 percent of Manipur's population and live mostly in the Imphal Valley, while the tribals, including the Nagas and Kukis, constitute 40 percent and live mostly in the hill districts.
