Brushes dripping red to expunge saffronization

50 paintings under the theme “Brushes dripping red to expunge saffronization” were showcased by the students of Government College of Fine Arts, Periyamedu, Chennai, to condemn the fascistic brutality that took place in Manipur.

The events occurring in Manipur for the past three months have been excruciating the people of India. On May 3, 2023, the indigenous Kuki and Naga tribes rallied for their rights. Violence erupted when racists of the Meitei community attacked the tribal solidarity rally.

The bloodthirsty Meitei racists stripped 3 Kuki women naked, paraded and sexually assaulted them on the streets. This horrific incident appeared on the internet only after 77 days. It shocked and devastated people around the globe. One of the Kuki survivors exposed that the policemen acted as the fifth column by handing them over to the Meitei racists. Arambai Tenggol and Meitei Leepun were used by the BJP-RSS fascists to set ablaze the ethnic violence and genocide in Manipur.

The Prime Minister enquired immediately about the injury of cricketer Shikhar Dhawan on twitter. But he opened his mouth on the sexual assault of the Kuki women and shed crocodile tears only after 79 days, just as a tactic to counter the opposition from questioning him in the parliament.

Condemning the heinous events in Manipur, protests have erupted throughout India, demanding that the perpetrators be brought to justice. Particularly, college students from Tamilnadu have ferociously raised their voices against these horrific events. The rail blockade by the students of Jain College, Chennai sparked a wave of protests. Students of Presidency College, Madras University, Nandanam Government Arts College, New College, Loyola College and Dr. Ambedkar Government Law College in Chennai registered their protests.

On July 31, 2023 students from the Kumbakonam Government College of Fine Arts protested against the violence in Manipur through their paintings. Following this, students from the Chennai Government College of Fine Arts showcased more than 50 paintings themed “Brushes dripping red to expunge saffronisation” on August 1, 2023 in opposition to the Manipur violence.
