“Rapists by their own actions cease to be a father, husband, son, brother, relative, friend or a neighbor,” the GPRN/NSCN said on Sunday while condemning the recent rape and murder cases which had “traumatized” the Naga society. Publicity cell of the GPRN/NSCN asked if the Nagas should allow the female populace to remain at the mercy of rapists and killers and that if they should simply condemn the incidents and go quiet. It mentioned some instances of rape and murder such as: The rape and murder of Anukamba Dhan, a class IX student of Carmel Higher Secondary School, Dimapur on April 17, 2008; the brutal gang rape of a pregnant woman near Old Showuba Village, Dimapur on August 28, 2008; the gang rape of a daughter on the night of March 25, 2009 at Darogapathar, Dimapur; the rape of a teenager in Zunheboto on April 11, 2009 and the rape and murder of Gaipuilu Ganmei in Delhi on April 17, 2009. The GPRN/NSCN said these tragic incidents were indications that the society was spiraling out of control and that it was high time for a society which claimed to cherish its women with profound respect and honor so dearly, to declare and pronounce highest punishment to those who snuff out dreams and hopes of women through animalistic behavior. The GPRN/NSCN also said the highest degree of physical violation of the fairer sex must be responded equally with highest degree of punishment. It called upon the guardians of Naga society to rise up from the slumber and identify “rapist-killers” to ensure that Naga women were not reduced to becoming perpetual victims in their own backyard. It asserted that allowing these beasts to roam the towns and villages was a complete humiliation of the political, social, cultural, moral and ethical pursuits. With this trend, the GPRN/NSCN said, dehumanization of Christian Naga society would be “final?” very soon and revolutionary ideals completely abused. It said that unless a stern law was promulgated against rapists and their kind, all Naga customary laws stood dysfunctional, redundant and impractical against this menace. The GPRN/NSCN in a strong worded statement said any lawyer, legal team defending the action of the rapists must face the “wrath of a traumatized Naga society.”
