Dimapur, August 13: The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has extended Naga Independence Day greetings to Naga people living in different parts of the world.
“Today marks the 73rd year of the founding father of the great Naga nation declaring the length and breadth of Nagalim free from any occupational and imperialist forces and the NSF joins the Naga people in taking forward and upholding this historic day. Today’s celebration is not a sign of defiance of any forces on earth but a peaceful assertion of our legitimate rights based on historical facts,” the NSF stated in a message issued by its president, Ninoto Awomi and general secretary, Liremo R Kikon.
The NSF saluted all the brave-hearts who had laid down their lives in the line of duty for the cause of Nagalim and to everyone who is continuing to carry forward the baton of Naga nationalism.
As Nagalim celebrates its 73rd birthday, the NSF called upon the Naga youths and students in particular and the entire Naga populace in general to remain united in all aspects, be steadfast in upholding the peoples’ movement and be unwavering in ensuring that the ideals of our nation’s founding fathers are kept alive in our thoughts, words and deeds.
Taking this opportunity, the NSF also appealed to Naga people to be mindful and watchful of the policies and actions of “our enemies” who are leaving no stones unturned to divide the Naga people.
“Let us all rise above our isms, love each other unconditionally, accept each other’s weaknesses and together with God strive towards our ultimate destination,” it appealed.
