The 27th April, 2017

The Thadou Students’ Association, General Headquarters (TSA-GHQ) appreciates the Core Committee (a conglomeration of various CSOs, NGOs, Student Organizations, Meira Paibi Lups, Activists, etc.) for successfully organising the mass rally & public meeting against the Phaknung gang rape on 14 April, 2017 at Khunthokkhanbi, Thangmeiband, Imphal on 27th April, 2017.

We urge the people of Manipur to stand up in unison against this kind of heinous crime and make Manipur a safe place for all. Manipur should not be converted into a crime state thereby creating fear and insecurity for women & children. There is no excuse for rape, and TSA strongly disagrees with the recent press statement of some Meira Paibi Lups which tried to blame the victims rather than the perpetrators of the crime. Moral policing would not really help improve women safety. Sexual violence against women does happen even at home and in their own bed.

The alleged gang rape and subsequent murder of Th Manorama in 2004 that led to widespread protests across the state allegedly took place after she was picked up from her home in Imphal. Women organisations are supposed to be the ones to better empathise with rape survivors and better understand that rape does not discriminate and that rape survivors do not need to be retraumatised, but feel supported. Every possible support should be given to the victims to ensure that they are not retraumatised and justice is delivered to them in a timely and efficient manner.

The government should not undermine the sentiments of the general public and should investigate the authenticity of the claim that rapists are Juveniles by conducting an ossification test and verifying original educational certificates from class VIII through to class X or the highest qualification of the rapists. This is necessary in light of the possibility of fake birth certificates, unless actually issued at the time of birth, and other age proof documents being obtained in Manipur just to get away with the system.

We urge the police and court to expedite the case as per Prevention of Children from Sexual Offences, 2012 Act and sentence the accused as early as possible.

TSA would also like to urge the government especially the Child Welfare Committee and State Commission for Protection of Child Rights to take-up necessary rehabilitation and adequately compensate the victims as early as possible.

TSA condemns rape of two school children, calls for preventive measures.

Posted by Thadous on April 20, 2017 at 1:25 PM Comments comments (0)

PRESS RELEASE Imphal, the 20th April, 2017

TSA condemns rape of two school children, calls for preventive measures.

The Thadou Students’ Association - General Headquarters (TSA-GHQ) vehemently condemns the inhumane act of seven gang members who raped two school going students on the fateful night of Good Friday/Cheiraoba i.e, 14 April, 2017 near Lamlong Bazar in Imphal East district. TSA appreciates the Manipur police team who investigated the matter promptly and arrested the culprits. We would like to request the state authority to take up the issue with utmost attention and expedite the case within the timeframe as stated by the POCSO law in bringing timely justice. The state authority must punish the perpetrators with the most stringent action according to the law of the land, and none of them should be spared. It is laudable that Mrs Nemcha Kipgen, Hon’ble Minister for Social Welfare, Govt of Manipur, personally intervened into the matter and assured all possible support to the highly traumatised victims and their families. We would like to appeal to the public to be cautious and sensitive while discussing the incident, bearing in mind that as per POCSO law, revealing of victim’s identity is a punishable offence. It is so important that every woman and child feels safe and secure at home and outside in the community that no development can take place in any society without it, and the very purpose of education would be defeated when our women and children do not feel safe in the community and their rights violated. There is no excuse for rape and sexual assault in a civilised society, and as such every member of our society must say a big no to it, and all civil organisations and public along with the government must put up a strong fight against any form of sexual assault and violence against women and children. We would like to urge the state government to take up necessary action and work with the community to effectively bring about preventive measures or systems in the state to ensure that such incidents of sexual assault do not recur in the future.
