Source: Hueiyen News Service

Imphal, March 07 2013: Expressing concern over increasing crime against women all over the world today, the proscribed UG outfit, PREPAK has called for equal rights and status for women in the society on the occasion of International Women's Day.

PREPAK, in a statement signed by its Assistant Secretary, Publicity and Propaganda, Leibakngakpa Luwang, recalled that Russian women organised a mass strike on the last Sunday of February 1917 demanding Bread and Peace.

After the demonstration, the then Czar resigned from his post and a new democratic government emerged in Russia.

Following the incident, different countries in the world began observing International Women's Day.

United Nations began observing the day from March 8, 1975 .

In December 1977, the General Assembly of the UN adopted a resolution to observe International Women's Day as United Nations Day for Women's Rights and International Peace.

Meanwhile, crime against women in India has become a common incidence in India.

Rape, murder, and influencing to commit suicide are increasing day by day.

Khap Panchayat of the northern India and its rules has been keeping women in the lowest status of the society.

Keeping its tradition of gender discrimination, the India government indirectly encourages discrimination and atrocities towards women of North East by its security forces.

Since, Manipur became a part of Indian Union, crime against women have also become a part of the Manipuri society.

In the light of increasing crime rate against women, people of the state need to come forward and act sincerely against any forms of violence against women and provide equal status to women in the society, PREPAK said.

The outfit also appealed to the people of Manipur to come forward and make the society free from any form of gender based violence.
