NH acknowledges FNR on  10th anniversary of CoR

Dimapur, June 12: The Naga Hoho (NH) has acknowledged the Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) on the 10th anniversary of the signing of the Covenant of Reconciliation.
“The Naga Hoho joins the 10th Anniversary, the signing of Covenant of Reconciliation and acknowledges the struggle of FNR members in particular for leading the Naga people thus far towards the path of peace and reconciliation among the rival groups,” NH said in a communiqué issued by its communication cell.
With the exception of people who were born post cease-fire period, Naga people have witnessed horrific killings among different Naga political rival groups (factions) alongside the bloody war between the Indian occupational forces and Naga Armies which was a harrowing nightmare and a memory never to be forgotten, it said.
NH recalled that in such an unprecedented situation ten years back, the Naga civil societies unanimously resolved to form a body called Forum for Naga Reconciliation with a view to strive for unity and reconciliation among different Naga political groups. “Under their efforts, the fratricidal killings could come to an end in the best interest of entire Naga people.”
“Significantly, the Covenant of Reconciliation was signed by all the top ranking Naga political groups on June 13, 2009 under the banner of FNR which was an epoch making event in the annals of Naga political history,” it said.
Stating that being minorities in the sub-continent, fear and apprehensions are looming in the minds of Naga people of what destiny holds, the NH said amicable political settlement is the only hope which is possible once we are united and reconciled. It appealed to all Naga political rival groups to renew their vision and implement the Covenant of Reconciliation in letter and spirit for the common Naga cause. (Page News Service)
