The banned militant organisation of Manipur UNLF (United National Liberation Front) has cautioned all the people collaborating with the Indian security forces. UNLF is one of the largest militant group active in Manipur, a North East Indian state.
A statement issued by the outfit’s senior publicity officer Ksh Yoiheiba, appreciated activities of WIGC (Women’s Income Generation Centre) aimed at promoting crafts of the land but opposed to invitation of top officials of Assam Rifles to the inaugural function of a ‘Craft Bazar’ at Thoubal recently.
But the recent collaboration between WIGC, its secretary Indira Oinam and security forces was not only an act of bargaining their own dignity but also an open act of demeaning the self-respect of the womenfolk of Manipur.
Stating that it would be impossible to bring economic well being of the Manipuri nation under the alien rule, the outfit cautioned WIGC and its secretary.
The UNLF is well aware of the Indian rulers; and their security agencies’ ploy to breed reactionaries against the liberation movement by offering some monetary benefits.
It would be an utopian dream to compensate for the lives killed by security forces and their bestial acts of outraging modesty of women with such measures as sponsoring education tours of children, distribution of some material benefits or by developing some play grounds.
Reminding about the brutal murder of Thangjam Manorama and the subsequent nude protest in front of Kangla, the outfit cautioned all individuals, and NGOs particularly WIGC and its secretary to be wary of the designs of Indian security forces.
