Outrage over Manipur violence, ex-Army husband ashamed he couldn’t protect wife paraded naked


The husband of one of the women who was paraded naked by a mob in Manipur has said that he feels “ashamed” and “helpless” that he could not protect her. The man, who served in the Indian Army in Kargil, said that he was “shocked and disgusted” when he saw the video of the incident.

The woman, who is a member of the Kuki tribe, was abducted from her home in Kangpokpi district on May 4, along with her husband and two children. The mob also killed her father and brother. The woman was later released, but she has been traumatized by the experience.

The man said that he is “deeply saddened” by the incident, and that he hopes that the perpetrators will be brought to justice. He also said that he wants to see an end to the violence in Manipur.

The incident has sparked widespread outrage across India, and has led to calls for the government to take action to protect women from violence. The Manipur government has said that it is committed to bringing the perpetrators to justice, and that it is taking steps to improve security in the state.

The incident has also highlighted the deep-seated tensions between the Kuki and Meitei tribes in Manipur. The two tribes have a long history of conflict, and the violence in recent months has only served to further divide them.

The violence in Manipur is a reminder of the fragility of peace in the Northeast region of India. The region has been plagued by violence for decades, and the recent incidents have raised concerns about the future of peace and security in the region.
