MSAD's statement on Police action at General Secretary's residence

23rd December, 2018

Today morning, Police came to the home of Keinou Javed Mehedi, General Secretary, MSAD to nab him as per directed from the State Government. They asked Veewon Thokchom (President of MSAD) and Damudor Arambam (Advisor to MSAD) too. They asked all his details and intimidate his family as much as possible. And it is a time when we speak too much against the arbitrary arrest of journalist Wangkhemcha Wangthoi.

Way back, MSAD’s plan to organize a protest march in New Delhi, against the arbitrary arrest of Wangkhemcha Wangthoi, was foiled by Delhi Police following the directives of Manipur CM. First in MSAD’s history, all the protestors were detained even before the Protest.

Three days before the Protest, they were in search of the General Secretary impersonating themselves as TOI and Zee news reporters. Since then we have been vociferous against the state undemocratic approaches and conducts to gag the voices of the masses. He has been a strong critic against the arbitrary and conspired arrest of Wangthoi.

Today, his turn has come and the state authority is using all its might to gag him. This inability to take criticism clearly shows their misconducts.

Friends, we don’t need to afraid anyone. This authoritarian misuse of power and intimidation will not go long if we unite and fight back. If we don’t fight back, yesterday was Wangthoi’s turn, today is our turn and tomorrow might be your turn.

We are in a sorry state of authoritarian regime that anybody can be arbitrarily arrested and killed anytime at anywhere under NSA and AFSPA, if the government does not want you. (recently we have seen in Wangthoi’s arrest under NSA & the state inability to question the army in Gaffar’s killing).

Nobody can poke nose into this draconian Acts imposed over us. We are under such state of oppression. If we don’t wake up and fight back at this right time for the mankind, justice and truth, our next generation will judge us. We were not born to be oppressed. And our silence will create more violence in future.

MSAD strongly condemns such an act of intimidation and MSAD will not stay silent on this. We appeal to all the Manipuri population to stay strong and fight back.

Yawolna Yaiphare!
Apunbana Yaiphare!
