Film of Naked Women Being Harassed by Mobs Sparks Outrage in India

Violence and Harassment in Manipur, India

A video of two women being harassed and forced to parade naked in the Indian state of Manipur has recently gone viral on social media, sparking outrage among citizens. The incident has added fuel to an already violent conflict between ethnic groups in the state.

The clip was filmed on May 4, but has only recently started to circulate. According to the BBC, the mob of men sexually harassed the women and pushed them out into a rice field, and it’s believed they were also subjected to gang rape. The Indian government has asked social media platforms to delete the video.

Meitei Demand for Recognition Leads to Violence

The violence in Manipur started when the Meitei, one of the largest ethnic groups in the state, wanted to be recognized and registered as an ethnic group. This would give them increased opportunities for land ownership, government jobs, and political representation.

Other Ethnic Groups React Strongly

Other ethnic groups reacted strongly because they felt that the Meitei already had a political majority. They feared that if the Meitei were recognized as an ethnic group, they would have even more power.

Protests Turn Violent, Leaving Hundreds Dead

It wasn’t long before protests turned violent, resulting in at least 130 deaths and thousands of injuries. Houses, churches, and temples have been burned down, and around 60,000 people have fled the area.

The violence has also forced thousands of people to flee their homes. Many have taken refuge in camps, where they are struggling to survive. The future of Manipur is uncertain, and the violence is a reminder of the challenges of ethnic coexistence.
