Press Release

23th April 2012


Whatever have been and will be said or written about the 19th April, 2012 incident at Hebron, the Council Headquarters of NSCN , it was actually an outrageous trespass of the Notorious  Assam Rifles to the NSCN Camp. No amount of excuses or explanations by the Assam Rifles and other Indian government agencies can justify or cover the crime. It was a flagrant violation of Cease-fire ground rules and the spirit of the widely known Cease-fire agreement between the NSCN and the Government of India. It was a planned and deliberate act of provocation.

The Assam Rifles are the instruments and the real actor was / is either the GoI or the Indian Army top establishments which have dangerous differences with their Government. Undeterred betrayal actions of Assam Rifles clearly indicate that there is a powerful back-up from the so-called High Command. In the midst of 14 years of political dialogue, these crimes had been committed from the Indian side. Such actions show how GoI is sincere and committed as per their words. As a big nation like India stooped to such a low standard which is fighting for a permanent member in the UNO Security Council??

In Such a deepening crises when anything can be happened, the so-called Chairman of the Cease-fire Monitoring group, Maj.Gen.George awkwardly trying to shy away his neutral and unprejudicial responsibilities. Much more, Nagaland state as a powerful unit in the India Federation, and the government which holds the law and order subject is maintaining death silence. The NPF Government in Nagaland boastfully claims as a facilitator in the peace process between the NSCN and the GoI. But during such crisis and uncertainty what the Nagaland State government is doing? The NSCN is a political group only. But the dangerous consequence is threatening the entire population of the Nagas. So that Naga people may ask the reasons why the State Government does not raise a voice in such a critical situation? If any undesirable situation is created from today’s crisis, the Government of Nagaland state should be squarely blamed by the Nagas.

More than 95% Nagas desire freedom from want and oppressions. They have witnessed how GoI and its leaders are acting in political dialogue and the April 19th 2012 incident at Hebron is a good lesson for all the Nagas. The other factions are talking about political dialogue with India, but they will certainly experience the same insincerity and false diplomacies from the GoI. The said incident should be an eye opener for all sections of the Naga people. The system of dictatorship and authoritarianism, oppression and suppression is speedily losing ground from the face of the world. The Nagas are united in our desire for freedom and dignity of life. Therefore, let us again unite as before and fight with whatever is available at our command. Let us not loss heart but be strengthen with difficult situations we are facing now.

From today’s incident Naga people have learned the real intention of India and so we should get prepared for any eventualities.
