Manipur Women Case: Center Requests That Videos Not Be Shared on Twitter and Other Platforms

<p>The Centre issued a directive to Twitter and other social media sites instructing them not to post the footage after a significant outrage on the May 4 video showing two women in Manipur being paraded in their underwear. The footage was captured on May 4, a day after ethnic conflicts between the Meitei and Kuki groups broke out in the state, and it showed men from one community parading two nude women from another rival community in the Kangpokpi area.</p>
<p>In its instructions, the government made clear that it was crucial to abide by Indian law while the case was being looked at.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-85920″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/www.theindiaprint.com-prabhas-debuts-in-public-for-the-first-time-after-the-failure-of-adipurush-and-debuts-project-k-at-comic-con-in-the-us-images-2023-07-20t165815.256.jpg” alt=”” width=”1370″ height=”767″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/www.theindiaprint.com-prabhas-debuts-in-public-for-the-first-time-after-the-failure-of-adipurush-and-debuts-project-k-at-comic-con-in-the-us-images-2023-07-20t165815.256.jpg 300w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/www.theindiaprint.com-prabhas-debuts-in-public-for-the-first-time-after-the-failure-of-adipurush-and-debuts-project-k-at-comic-con-in-the-us-images-2023-07-20t165815.256-150×84.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1370px) 100vw, 1370px” /></p>
