  • What is happening in Manipur for the last many years has now been proven by the pictures of Thelka. How can the Indian govt.be just a silent spactator. Is’nt India supposed to be the world’s largest democracy?? would it be wrong now if the people of Manipur demand their right to self determination?? The Indian govt must take appropriate action against the concerned authorities now so ththat the people are not further alienated. The chief minister must resign and owe moral responsibilities.

  • The United Nations should look into the atrocities commited by the Indian security forces on the people of the NORTH EAST especially in the state of Manipur.India seems to have forgotten that Manipur is also a part of itself.
    Every Indian should condemn the atrocities committed by the Indian security forces against the people of Manipur in the name of combating insurgency.Killing will only alienate the people further. India must look into the matter in a more humane way.
