somehow the Nobel committee is looking at her fast as something not very important with respect to India as a country they think they should consider giving someone else from Russia or maybe middle-east or Pakistan in a way that the prize not only acknowledge the work but to also encourage the community... this is absurd. Lets called it as a good practice to help future generation...but i still don't understand why on earth Barack Obama was given the prize (not that i am against Obama) .......

She is fighting for Basic Human rights for a long period but entire country is nothing but spectator.

What about those men in our forces who were killed brutally, or the citizen who were shot or burnt alive by the terrorists in the North East? If military is withdrawn, military movements are restricted, they would enjoy a free run. Can anyone guarantee the terrorists will also start nonviolent movement and give up their weapons? At the same time Govt of India should ensure the safety and security of general peace loving manipuri people effectively.

Sorry, I can not sign this petition. I respect her will to fight but not the cause. If AFSPA is removed, the insurgents will have a free run. So supporting this cause will weaken India
