Good, this would help in highlighting the issue of Manipuri people and their struggle.
It is a great to see the story goes worldwide, but never take this as a feat. It is unfortunate that she is into this fast for last 12 years against the opression meted out to the NE Citizen of India by the Indian Govt over the last 50 years. Hope many people will come forward to support her cause. You can lend your support by joining https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/supportsharmila/.
“Menghaobi” Irom Sharmila Chanu (born March 14, 1972), also known as the Iron Lady of Manipur, is a civil rights activist, political activist, journalist and poet from the Indian state of Manipur. Since November 4, 2000, she’s been on a political fast demanding the Government of India to withdraw the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, 1958, also otherwise known as AFSPA, from Manipur and other areas of India’s north east.
Since it began in 2000, Irom Sharmila Chanu’s fast is unparalleled in the history of political protest.
Fact is INDIA was under british empire and was under pathetic conditions. so they want to imposed that kind of rules to the NE as they look different from india. This is really unfair. INDIA is more worst than British of the past
Irom Sharmila Chanu is fasting for last 12 years against the Indian Government for support to her demand for repeal of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act. This record could be a milestone…. But its shameful for the Indian Government not interested in the issue been raised. Till date…. Justice is not been done…..
