NSCN/GPRN-K (Niki) comes out against recent LGBTQ+ conclave

Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, MARCH 3: The NSCN/GPRN-K (Niki) has come out strongly against the recent first ever LGBTQ+ conclave held in Nagaland (Dimapur) on February 29 last, and directed those who had come from outside Nagaland to propagate and encourage LGBTQ in the State to leave Naga inhabited areas within 3 days time.
“The NSCN/GPRN shall not be held responsible for any negative reaction that may occur owing to failure to comply with the directive”, it warned in a press release issued today.
The Nagaland Advocacy Conclave was held as part of the “Rainbow Dialogues: All in this Together” project, and aimed to initiate discussions on social acceptance, inclusion and employment opportunities for the LGBTQ+ community.
“Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ), alien to the Naga society and something that was never heard of among the Naga people, is trying make a foothold in Naga society to corrupt and tow away the minds of Naga people especially the younger generation from our cultural and religious beliefs. The intent of evil is and ever has been to deceive and to get someone to call it good”, it said.
Stating that such event is not only posing a serious threat to the moral ethics of the Nagas, but is also against the teachings of Christianity, the NSCN/GPRN said it shall not be blinded and allow external elements to replace our traditional and religious values with unrighteous and unethical ways of life.
“The Nagas, as Christians, shall not tolerate people (non-locals) coming from elsewhere trying to destroy the fabric of our society. Nagas including the churches must be ever vigilant about such evil forces trying to destroy the existence of our society and also educate and counsel the younger generation who are potentially vulnerable to such bad influences”, it added.
