Renewed Hope & Naga Reconciliation

The Forum for Naga Reconciliation appreciates the positive attitude and forward-looking step taken by the NSCN/GPRN cabinet who has resolved to endorse the FNR appeal to re-strengthen the reconciliation process to Chairman SS Khaplang for his final approval. This decisive move brings renewed hope to the Naga people and FNR remains optimistic that Chairman SS Khaplang will respond to the people’s desire for Naga Reconciliation in the same spirit that he signed the Covenant of Reconciliation in 2009.

It is however very saddening to hear that a cadre of the NSCN/GPRN was killed today at Ahthibung. The FNR once again pleads to the concerned groups to issue an immediate order to their army commanders to stand down and to refrain from any acts of violence and provocation. It is also learnt that two cadres of the GPRN/NSCN is under the custody of NSCN/GPRN in Mon. The FNR urges the NSCN/GPRN to immediately release them in the larger interest of Naga Reconciliation. For the sake of real peace and genuine reconciliation, we strongly urge the leaders to demonstrate their able leadership to stop their cadres from indulging in violence once and for all.

Furthermore, the FNR encourages the NSCN/GPRN cabinet to uphold their resolve to restrain its army commanders from launching any offensive or aggressive campaign in order to facilitate conducive atmosphere for the “Naga Reconciliation Meeting” on February 29. The Forum for Naga Reconciliation applauds this courageous decision taken by the cabinet members of the NSCN/GPRN under the leadership of Chairman SS Khaplang and believes that it will provide new opportunities to strengthen the process towards Naga Reconciliation and enrich the sense of NagaHood.

The Forum for Naga Reconciliation takes this opportunity to once again extend warm invitation to Chairman SS Khaplang and the leaders of all the Naga groups to attend the Naga Reconciliation Meeting on February 29, 2012. The Naga people implore the presence of all the leaders so that they may listen to your position on Naga Reconciliation and your vision for the Naga people.

At this juncture it is pertinent for the FNR to appeal to reasonable people not to be confused, nor try to create confusion. The thirst for Naga Reconciliation is undeniable. The very basis for the formation of the Forum for Naga Reconciliation in 2008 was to facilitate a process to enable the Naga groups to meet, dialogue and create a pathway to Reconciliation. Under the theme “Naga Reconciliation: A Journey of Common Hope” the Forum for Naga Reconciliation and the Naga groups have travelled to a third country, and to various Naga towns and village and have met over a hundred times to strengthen Naga Reconciliation. Despite hurdles and setbacks, FNR has not wavered in our commitment to Naga Reconciliation of all.

Today, the FNR once again appeals to the Naga people for your understanding, patience and support and we urge that no individual or organizations should politicize the Naga reconciliation process for their own personal interest or benefit.
