Imphal, Mar 13:

Members of the Extra-Judicial Execution Victims Families Association (EEVFAM) have expressed profound grief and concern over the recent events unfolding in Manipur. In response to the ongoing crisis, the association has issued a heartfelt appeal to address the pressing issues affecting the state.
Comprising widows, mothers, and relatives of victims of extrajudicial killings, EEVFAM members have conveyed their firsthand experiences of the pain and trauma endured by those impacted by post-May 3, 2023 violence. They have highlighted the significant challenges faced in their quest for survival and dignity, particularly as single parents supporting their children.
Addressing the multi-faceted nature of violence, EEVFAM members have emphasized that many find themselves as “double or triple-time victims,” irrespective of their community affiliations. They stress that violence transcends community boundaries, affecting individuals regardless of their background. Despite these challenges, they assert a unified opposition to the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), advocating for its repeal in Manipur.
EEVFAM has called for an end to all forms of violence, including state-sponsored and vested interest-triggered violence. They urge both the Union and State governments to devise peaceful resolutions to conflict-ridden situations, emphasizing the collective suffering endured by the people of Manipur.
Recognizing progress in their advocacy efforts, EEVFAM cites the landmark judgment delivered by the Supreme Court of India on July 8, 2016, in the EEVFAM versus Union of India case. This pivotal case highlighted alleged extrajudicial killings by security forces in Manipur, prompting calls for accountability and challenging military impunity.
EEVFAM’s unwavering commitment underscores their determination to seek justice and bring an end to violence in Manipur. Their efforts aim to safeguard the well-being and rights of all affected individuals and communities in the region.
