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.
