Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, DECEMBER 3: The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has reaffirmed its earlier resolution to extend non-cooperation to the Indian Armed Forces until AFSPA is repealed from Naga homeland. This was resolved in its 4th federal assembly held at Boro Henam village, Dima Hasao, Haflong on December 2 last.
Demanding that the draconian law, AFSPA, be repealed once and for all and that human rights are restored in the Naga homeland, NSF in a press release said, “The Federation sees no rationale as to why the Naga homeland within India is tagged as ‘disturbed areas’ and the repressive AFSPA is thrust upon its people when the Indo-Naga political dialogue’s been held at the Prime Minister’s level is at a very crucial stage. It is only because of AFSPA that the Indian armed forces continue to operate with impunity in complete disregard of all humane values & virtues.”
Paying homage to the departed souls whose lives were brutally massacred on December 4, 2021 by the para military forces at Tiru/Oting village area under Mon district, the Federation condemned the cowardly act of the Indian Armed forces shielded by the AFSPA regime, which have been causing terror in the hearts and minds of the Naga people for the past several decades. It demanded the Government of India that justice is delivered to the victims and family members of the gruesome Oting incident and to all the pending cases related to the excesses committed by the Indian armed forces without further ado.
The Federation also appealed to all its federating units to symbolically observe December 4 in remembrance of the victims of the Oting massacre at their respective Oking.
