Must read

Shillong, July 21: The Khasi Jaintia Church Leaders’ Forum (KJCLF) on Friday called on the Meira Paibis of Manipur to stand true to its commitment in protecting, promoting and upholding the respect and dignity of women in society.

Condemning the recent crime against women in the violence-hit Manipur, KJCLF said, “The KJCLF deplores these ghastly acts and in the strongest terms condemns all those who are directly involved and indirectly encourages such crimes. We call on the Meira Paibis of Manipur to stand true to your commitment in protecting, promoting and upholding the respect and dignity of women in society.”

“Against the backdrop of the ongoing humanitarian tragedy in Manipur with no end in sight, it is a disgrace to see that the perpetrators of the crime against women have stooped so low and degraded themselves to display that they are nothing short of being animals – mean, savage and preying on women who cannot defend themselves against the wild and frenzied mob,” it said.

“With great dismay it is noted that Chief Minister Biren Singh has acknowledged that there are 100s of cases such as these in Manipur, and that the Prime Minister while expressing pain and anger has stated that such crimes bring shame to the whole country. Indeed the PM’s assurance is heard loud and clear ‘that the guilty persons will not be spared’ and it is expected that this commitment of Mr Modi will happen in deed, and soon,” it added.

The KJCLF also said that it greatly appreciates the statement and intervention of the Chief Justice of India, DY Chandrachud, urging the government to take immediate action. This is an assurance to the country and in particular to the victims of this crime that justice will be served.

“The KJCLF reaches out to our suffering sisters that in your anguish, trauma and delicate frame of mind, please remain strong and resilient in your spirit and be assured that you are in the embrace of our fraternity and prayerful friendship,” it said.
