This rejoinder is against “NPMHR presentation at UN, New York (April 22 to May 3) by Neingulo Krome, Secretary General Naga People Movement for Human Rights (NPMHR) as published in local daily on April 28, 2019.
Among others, I wish to point out in paragraph four of his presentation. Where Secretary General of NPMHR stated: “Government of India entered into a 1st Ceasefire Agreement with the leaders of the Naga National movement in 1964”. From this statement of the NPMHR in the person of Neingulo Krome, it is known that he has not factually presented the historical truth on Nagaland in whichever UN forum he presented. By “a 1st Ceasefire Agreement…in 1964” I am sure he is talking about the one and only International Ceasefire Agreement signed between the two sovereign nations of the Government of India and the Federal Government of Nagaland-which was officially declared on 6th September 1964. It was not signed under a vague name “Naga National Movemnet” as Neingulo puts it. Moreover, Nagas struggle all these years is not a “movement” but a case of aggression by India on Nagaland.
I, therefore, would like to give brotherly advice to Neingulo and his tribe of human rights activists not to shy away from the historical rights and facts about the Nagas and Nagaland, be it at home or abroad. If you continue to do as your statement mentioned above, I am afraid it will confuse the outside world instead of making them understand Nagas rightful place.
