Naga Women’s Union appeals to end all forms of harassment to Naga women

The Naga Women’s Union, Manipur has appealed to all armed miscreants in Manipur to put an end to all forms of harassment committed towards the Naga women.
In a statement, the president of the Union Ch. Priscilla Thiumai said that at a time when the Christmas celebration is approaching fast and is at hand, the unbridled and unchecked prevalence of indulgence to coercive behavior by armed miscreants in various parts and localities of state disguised as taxation which is not less than extortion in the name of the existing situation is sounding a call to darker and grimmer Manipur in the times when every sane and good people is striving for the restoration of peace.
It said that in the guise of the status quo, armed malefactors and miscreants creating chaos in the valley and hills have not been spared, targeting the ladies belonging to the Naga community, physically harassing and abducting them to unknown locations by armed miscreants is not acceptable at all by human right agencies and global communities. The cases of monetary demands, threats, and abductions for ransoms on innocent civilians, especially from women are villainous acts that will not serve the larger aspiration of the state and the nation. This notoriety will lead to nowhere but deep prejudices against whatever community the armed miscreants belong to. It said the armed miscreants operating in groups or units, as reported, are undertaking a serious yet unwarranted route to calamitous doom for the state of Manipur. It is not good to be forgotten that a thing that seems good for one is harming the other. In the like manner, extortions and abductions taking place is not a sign of civilized society, the Naga Women’s Union said.
While condemning the felonious activities operating indiscriminately to the Nagas populace especially, hapless women and ladies, the Union called on all groups to put an end to those acts of breaching human rights immediately.
“Our silence doesn’t mean that we are weak. The offensive conduct of interference in work, a threat impacting the victim’s self-esteem and mental health is punishable under certain sections of IPC. When our tolerance is beyond what we can bear, do not forget that the action which is happening locally can be spread globally within a few seconds. We have been accommodating for a long time considering the situation of confronting parties. The brunt of using women in conflict is costly”, Ch. Priscilla Thiumai said.
The Union also appealed to all the Naga-organized civil societies to be more sober in the negotiation of all types of crime against women.
