The Global Naga Forum (GNF) has called upon the chairman of NSCN/GPRN and convener of Working Committee, 7 NNPGs to uphold the non-negotiable political rights of the Nagas for an honorable political solution.
The GNF is a common platform of the patriotic Nagas from different walks of life with members drawn from across the world.
The organization in a statement on Monday acknowledged the sacrifice made by various Naga political groups but appealed them to respectfully recognize the need to acknowledge that countless ordinary patriotic Naga men and women have paid a heavy price in one way or the other in the struggle for our common aspiration towards self-determination.
“We believe that there are well-meaning patriotic Naga public, professionals and intellectuals whose goodwill and voices should be recognized, accepted and tapped as resources for the progressive realization of the common aspiration,” GNF said.
“We are living in a historic moment with a golden opportunity to either create a harmonious future collectively or regress into chaos, utter confusion and internecine conflicts of mutual destruction of self and others. To avoid the return of violence by finding peaceful political solution through the present political dialogues, we sincerely beseech all the different Naga political groups to reconcile with each other for unity in common purpose through dialogue, mutual respect, trust and accommodative spirit,” it added.
The GNF also expressed their apprehension and concerns about the hovering air of uncertainty, confusion and differences within the Naga political groups.
The organisation alleged that some unseen hands of hawkish elements are working with a systematic design of divide and destroy policy of deliberate and willful splitting of the ranks and files of the Naga political groups, pitching groups against each other by constructing and implanting divisive narratives so as to exploit the confusion, ethnic fault lines and fear for manufacturing consent to force the most deceptive piecemeal packages as solutions to the Nagas’ aspiration to live as a people with peace and dignity.
