Nagaland Women Commission (NWC) has expressed “grave concern” over the insecurity of Naga girls and women in Delhi. NWC chairperson, Sano Vamuzo in a letter addressed to National Commission for Women (NCW) said the atrocities and crimes particularly rape and molestation of Northeast/Naga girls and women has turned out to be daily occurrence, especially with the “most shocking and atrocious” rape and murder of six-year-old girl. However, she felt that justice was a far cry, as so many cases reported were not given proper investigation nor proper trials pronounced. “It seems to us that the authorities are less concerned for such atrocities being committed against our Naga citizens,” state women commission president bewailed. NWC further pleaded National Commission for Women to intervene and take up issue with the responsible authorities to bring the culprits to book while ensure harshest punishment be awarded to the culprits. It expressed confidence that NCW would take up its grievances with earnest and deliver justice in particular to recent case. In another statement Peren Town Women Welfare Organisation (PTWWO) “in the strongest term” has condemned the rape and murder of Gaipuilu Gangmei. PTWWO president, Apeuna and secretary, Hailamrang asserted that the incident signified women and children of Northeast were not secure in National capital. The women leaders also implored upon the authorities to take appropriate action and bring the culprits to book and award befitting punishment. Further conveying condolences to the bereaved family, PTWWO has prayed for departed soul rest in peace. Naga National Council (NNC) has “vehemently” condemned all the rape cases in the Naga “country” which occurred recently. Asserting that all those occurrences were despicable acts against human decency and civilised world, NNC information and publicity wing in a press note said these are totally against the rich culture and tradition of the Naga people and totally against Christianity which is our main religion in the Homeland.” Urging Naga people not to allow such act of despicable and inhuman behaviour in the Naga society, NNC insisted that rapists should be punished severely so that they become handicapped. It particularly condemned “most inhuman and devilish act” of rape and murder of a six-year-old Naga girl in Delhi. NCC said Delhi has become the main centre of inhuman and gruesome action of rape and murder in the world today. “The Capital City (Powered Centre) of India called the largest democracy and champion of non-violence country in the World is the main centre of inhuman and gruesome action of rape and murder in the World now,” NNC charged. Asserting that because of such action of cruelty, atrocities, killing, the Naga people do not like to live with Indians, NNC maintained that generally the North East people also do not like to live with Indians because of their nature of racial discrimination, hate, cruelty, killing, etc. “The North East people have to unite and separate themselves with Indians now,” NNC advocated.
