MSF reacts to RSS leader statement


IMPHAL, December 12: The MSF strongly disagrees and rejects the statement, “As far as the situation in Manipur is concerned, the presence of the Army is necessary for the sake of security of common people. Manipur needs the Army until militants are neutralized” made by Arun Kumar, the National Executive Member of Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) to the Sunday Times of India, Guwahati on December 8th, 2013 regarding his views on the repeal of AFSPA 1958 from Manipur.

According to a press release of the Manipuri Students’ Federation (MSF) issued by its publicity secretary MA Wakil Alsari, it is further said that the statement of Arum Kumar is a barbaric and biased statement against the people of Manipur, and added that the RSS leader’s statement is manipulative or racist tactics which displays his racist and hooligan mindset.

It further continued that the RSS leader, Arun Kumar should know it is a law with just six sections granting special powers to the armed forces in what the act terms as “disturbed areas”.
