Immediately deter from armed confrontation of any kind: FNR tells NPGs

Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, OCTOBER 20: The Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) has called upon all Naga Political Groups (NPGs) to immediately deter from armed confrontation of any kind and “cease the violence of idolatry of words in print and electronic media”.

In a press release, the FNR recalled that 12 years ago Naga society was gravely disrupted by violence and bloodshed, producing a society of pain, orphans and widows. But the signing of the “Covenant of Reconciliation” (CoR) on 13th June, 2009 paved the path to ending “factional” violence”, it said.
The CoR signed by late Isak Chishi Swu, Chairman, NSCN/GPRN (IM), late SS Kaplang, Chairman, NSCN/GPRN (K), and retired Brig. S Singnya, Kedaghe (President), FGN was a “divine gift to the Naga people” as it paved the path to ending “factional” violence”, it said.
The CoR reminded that since the signing of CoR Naga society is enjoying “an enormous familial and social benefit”. It said in the last 12 years, Naga society has begun moving with a spirit of peace felt by elders, commoners and joy seen in the faces of children.
Sadly, the cause and effect of violence takes no time to spiral down by turning man and woman inward against each other, it lamented.
“At this juncture, if Nagas are under threat, it will be at the “factional” and community level that we either solve the problem or fail. Needless to say, Naga future depends on how we act and remain committed to the CoR. Naga Political Groups (NPGs) and its leaders today are directly related to the CoR”, it stated.

Calling upon NPGs to immediately deter from armed confrontation of any kind, the FNR said, “CoR signed in the name of God carries a heavy responsibility. As in the past, FNR is here to listen to your stories and stand together for peace.”
