CNC to hold prayer and fasting programme
Dimapur, Sep. 4 (EMN): Council of Nagalim Churches (CNC) has decided to organise a two-day national fasting and prayer programme on September 7 and 8 on the theme “Repentance for healing” (2 Chronicle7:14).
CNC general secretary, Rev. Seksim Kasar, has appealed to all the NSCN (IM) members both civil and army set-ups in all the regions and army brigades, battalions and units to set aside their works and hold fasting and prayer on the aforesaid days. Kasar has also directed all pastors, chaplains, commanders, CAOs/ Caretakers and political organisers are to take the responsibility to implement the programme.
“Now, whether one may accept it or not, it is a matter of fact before the Lord and in the eyes of the world that NSCN would naturally be the reason for the Nagas either to be destroyed or established their nationhood,” Kasar stated in a press release.
He cautioned that in the event of breakdown of Indo-Naga political peace process of NSCN and GOI, Nagas would experience the life of blood path all over again, adding midnight knock or surprise day-time intrusion into any suspected house would be an everyday affairs.
“Taking someone away from the sight of wives, children, parents, brothers and sisters never to see him/ her again will be the fate of many. News of gunfight on the front pages of newspapers will be first thing you will see in the morning. Nagalim will bleed again like never seen before in recent history. Abuse, molestation, rape, torture, etc. would be the order of the day. You will not be an exception to the situation,” the statement warned.
As the Indian government has expressed their hearts to impose the Indian Constitution on the Nagas in three months’ time, it claimed that anti- Naga nationals are dancing to the tune of Indian music adding some Naga civil societies/ organisations (CSOs) and reckless individuals have been scheming evil projects for the worse against the NSCN.
In the light of the above stated circumstances, CNC earnestly urged all the Nagas to pray and seek forgiveness from God so that He will revive and heal the land.
