Imphal, Feb 20:
The North East Dialogue Forum has expressed strong condemnation to hurling a hand grenade at the Governor’s residence at the main gate of Raj Bhawan, Imphal on 19th January 2021 at around 4:15 PM.
The organization said that the Forum is also shocked by the series of bomb attacks to Poknapham daily newspaper office on 13th Feb 2021 at around 6:30 PM and at Moreh ward No.7 on 17th Feb 2021 at 9:30 PM by unknown persons.
A statement issued by the Forum said that such kind of grave threat, intimidation, and harassment is not uncommon in the lives of the people in Manipur and other states of North East India which is believed to be organized under the political environment of AFSPA. Such an Inhumane act of violence is a threat to the civilian population with grave concern.
“With serious concern, we extend our solidarity to the journalists. We also received information from credible sources that some members of the armed group are roaming around with small arms at one part of Tengnaopal District. Allowing to operate two separate factions of UGs in Moreh which are suspected to be backed by the members of security forces deployed in Manipur for counter-insurgency operation. There was a report of killing one member of UG  and injuring one civilian in Moreh on 23 January 2021 at around 11.30 am which was during the brought daylight. We are surprised how this kind of activity which is a threat to the peace is allowed to happen in towns where a lot of security and intelligence agencies are operating”, the statement said.
The statement further added that for the counter-insurgency response both state and central government empower Indian Army, paramilitary forces especially Assam Rifle and Police Commandos to check such kind of issue challenging to human rights under Armed Conflict and AFSPA.  Bomb attacks at public places, media, markets, hospitals, etc are war crimes. Such acts of violence are challenging the citizens of India and the constitution of the country. The concerned authorities need to take this continuous violence seriously. Such kind of inhuman acts committed by unknown persons seems to be not possible without the backing of powerful people or agencies or institutions.
The forum urged all the concerned authorities, institutions of security forces, investigating agencies, legal authorities to act seriously against such acts against humanity.
It also urged the Government of India to fully protect the lives of the civilians in Manipur because we are the victims of armed conflict for many decades without significant reason.
The forum also urged the government and India to review the security situation in Manipur and India to review the security situation in Manipur by an independent, impartial commission to find out the people who committed such an act of violence.
