India celebrates its 70th Independence day as it attained Independence from the British rule on August 15,1947 the struggle for Independence was a long and arduous battle during which only two weapons were used truth and non-violence but what we see in today's scenario people are way away from these two words the very meaning of the word Independence seems to have lost nowdays,we see a lot of hatred, unjust behaviour,a lot of violence,intolerence,etc prevailing in our country which seems to be impossible to tolerate.India ,our country is free from British rule but some of us are misusing it's Independence in all the possible ways ,Now India is in the hands of powerful Indian citizens like us who wish to celebrate each day as being independent as it comes.
Manipur activist Irom Sharmila the "Iron Lady" of Manipur who has been an international icon for her crusade against the controversial Armed Forces (Special Power) Act AFSPA since 2000 has put an end to her fast now. But unfortunately she receives a negative response from the people of Manipur itself. It is shocking to see this response from the people who actually supported her strongly throughout this 16 year long struggle, though her decision of entering politics remains the same to repel the draconian law and her fight will still continue for the people. Hence National Women's Front appreciates the initiative taken by this icon Irom Sharmila to end her 16 long year fast which is the first longest hunger strike to enter politics through which we hope she brings about a positive difference to the people of Manipur.Hoping that people do as well accept her decision and support her in this cause like they always have been doing .
National Women's Front has decided to mark the World day for prevention of child abuse in their annual calendar. The theme of the day would be 'Make their future bright, shape their future right'.

New Delhi: National Women’s Front president Shahida Aslam in a statement issued today has hailed the decision of the writer and Nehru’s niece Nayantra Saghal to return her Sahaitya Academy Award as a protest against assault on freedom of expression and Indian diversity, as a bold move. Shahida said that Nayantara Sahgal represents the remaining brave voices among Indian women against fascism.
Constitutionally guaranteed rights have come under attack in our country like never before. People are being killed for freely expressing their views or consuming their likes. The sudden increase in the number of such attacks and government failure to prevent them has created a valid suspicion and insecurity in the minds of people. Either the government has failed in ensuring security to minorities and of those who are opposed to fascist ideology of Sangh Parivar, or it is completely unconcerned of the problems. This is why Nayantara Sahgal’s decision becomes highly relevant.
