Government of India's call to end the FMR opposed by Naga club

Kohima: The Naga Club has opposed the Government of India’s (GoI) decision to end the Free Movement Regime, calling it “murder of humanity in a sea of ​​political crisis”.
In a press statement, the Naga Club, Information and Publicity Cell, criticized India under the Modi-Shah leadership, saying “India’s decision to scrap the FMR to maintain Nehru’s legacy of arrogant aggression against the Nagas.” appears again.”
“What makes the current administration of the GoI even more cruel, inhumane and criminal is that it has allegedly done away with the FMR at the behest of Manipur Chief Minister Biren Singh who has decided, already infamous for alleged ethnic cleansing of a section of its tribal Christian population, thereby making the present ruling regime in Delhi complicit in the crime it accused the dispensation in Manipur.

The Naga Club recalled that long before India was granted Independence following a prolonged subjugated rule under British colonialism, Nagaland had submitted the Memorandum to the Simon Commission in 1929, desirous to be left alone as in ancient times of its existence as independent republics without external dominion.

This was again reiterated in the declaration of August 14, 1947 as the Naga Independence day, a day ahead of India’s Independence, in consultation with Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Indian Nation, it added.

Even as India tried to suppress and subjugate the Naga voice and its political rights, the free and indomitable Naga spirit had demonstrated its sovereignty and its desire to be left alone through the Naga Plebiscite of May 16, 1951. These three landmark events amongst many others are enough proof of the legitimacy of the Naga Political rights, it further underscored.

Coming to the present, the Naga Club said the” Nagas shall oppose any restriction of movement of its people in its indigenous ancestral lands as well as oppose the erection of any physical barrier that is built on arbitrary and imaginary lines devised to divide and separate the Naga ethnic tribals who were already in homogeneous existence long before India came into being and long before any arbitrary line was drawn by India’s Nehru and Burma’s Unu.”

“The scrapping of FMR shall only serve to push the wedge of mistrust deeper into the Indo-Naga political conflict that refuses to heal because India refuses to acknowledge the ground realities of its occupational aggression,” it further noted.

The Naga Club hoped that wisdom prevail over the leadership in Delhi, “before the so-called north-east burns again with greater intensity over a greater geographical distribution.”
