‘Manipur incident can never be forgiven, guilty will not be spared’: PM on video of women being paraded naked

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said the incident of women being paraded naked in Manipur has shamed 140 crore Indians, asserting that law will act with its full might and no guilty will be spared.”My heart is full of pain and anger,” he told reporters in his remarks ahead of Parliament’s Monsoon Session, adding that what happened to daughters of Manipur can never be forgiven.

“I assure the nation, no guilty will be spared. The law will take its course with all its might,” PM Modi said.

In his remarks outside the Parliament, Modi also urged all Chief Ministers to further strengthen law and order in their states and take strictest steps to protect women.

“Today when I have come among you, standing near this temple of democracy, then my heart is full of pain, full of anger. The incident that has come to light in Manipur is a shameful incident for any civilized society,” Modi said.

He added, “How many are there who commit sins, who are they… They are at their place. But the entire country is being insulted, 140 crore countrymen are feeling ashamed. I urge all the Chief Ministers to further strengthen the law and order in their states.”

During his brief remarks, Modi also mentioned incidents of crime against women in the Congress ruled states like Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh. “Be it Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Manipur or any part of the country, maintaining law and order and respecting women should be put above any political debate,” Modi said.

He urged the Chief Ministers to take the “harshest steps especially to protect our mothers and sisters.”

Soon after the Prime Minister’s remarks, Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh said, “My hearts go out to the two women who were subjected to a deeply disrespectful and inhumane act, as shown in the distressing video that surfaced yesterday.”

“After taking a Suo-moto cognisance of the incident immediately after the video surfaced, the Manipur Police swung to action and made the first arrest this morning,” Singh said.

“A thorough investigation is currently underway and we will ensure strict action is taken against all the perpetrators, including considering the possibility of capital punishment. Let it be known, there is absolutely no place for such heinous acts in our society,” he tweeted.
