Celebrities Speak Out Against Horrific Violence Against Women in Manipur
In recent news, Bollywood actors Akshay Kumar, Richa Chadha, Renuka Shahane, and comedian Vir Das have expressed their outrage and disgust over a horrific incident that took place in Manipur. The incident involved two women from the Kuki-Zomi community who were subjected to heinous acts of violence, including being paraded naked and sexually assaulted by a mob of men.

Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar, known for his strong stance on social issues, took to Twitter to express his disgust upon seeing the video. He hoped that the perpetrators would face such severe punishment that it would serve as a deterrent for anyone considering committing such horrifying acts in the future.
Shaken, disgusted to see the video of violence against women in Manipur. I hope the culprits get such a harsh punishment that no one ever thinks of doing a horrifying thing like this again.

Comedian Vir Das raised questions about the inaction of political leaders, suggesting that they were likely aware of the incident long before it became viral on social media. He criticized the tendency of leaders to respond only when faced with online outrage, rather than prioritizing the well-being of the people they represent.

The video that surfaced on Twitter showed two women, one in her 20s and the other in her 40s, being forced to walk naked down a road and towards a field by a mob of men. The incident took place in the Kuki-Zomi dominated hill district of Kangpokpi in Manipur. The women were subjected to physical assault, including being groped against their will, as they were dragged towards the field.
Why don't u ask your Idols to raise voice over this heinous act??

A senior police official confirmed the incident’s occurrence on May 4 in Thoubal district and reported that a zero FIR had been registered in the matter on May 18 in Kangpokpi district. However, despite the registration of the FIR, which includes charges of abduction, gangrape, and murder against “unknown armed miscreants,” no arrests have been made so far.
Is there no one to stop the atrocities in Manipur? If you are not shaken to the core by that disturbing video of two women, is it even right to call oneself human, let alone Bharatiya or Indian!

The incident has also sparked conversations about the need for stricter laws and more efficient enforcement to prevent such heinous acts from recurring. Many are calling for the legal system to deliver a swift and severe punishment to the perpetrators, setting a precedent that would deter others from committing similar crimes.
When the so-called popular leader @narendramodi doesn't say a word, why do Indians still vote for him.
