Dimapur, July 12 (EMN): The Naga Hoho has appealed to ‘Naga people of all ages and professions to rise above any negativity or fictitious apprehensions’, saying that the Naga political solution must be for lasting peace in Naga homeland.

“The prevailing dispensation of groupism, tribalism and regionalism has no future and cannot bring about any tangible solution towards common aspirations. The common goal should not be interpreted to suit ones political group’s interest as it will only help succeed the schemes of the adversaries to delegitimise our legitimate right,” it said.

Maintaining that the “rambling noises emanating from our own land are polarising the Naga social fabric and created an environment of fear and uncertainty especially to the younger generations”, it said the young Nagas deserve a peaceful environment to grow and progress in line with the rest of the world.

The Naga Hoho also made a ‘sincere appeal’ to all the political groups and civil society organisations to avoid further counter press statements targeting each other but sit across the table and hammer out the differences to bring about a lasting political solution.

It opined that ‘Nagas must take into account the emerging political dynamic across the globe and the realities of geo politics evolving in the Asian theatre and explore new thinking to realise the common aspiration for dignity’.

“The Naga people’s hope for political solution is for inclusive and honourable settlement at the earliest. We must learn from the past mistakes which must make us wiser today,” it said while citing the adage: “When two brothers fight to death, a stranger inherits their property.”

It said the Nagas must not fall into the trap of the enemy despite “misunderstanding and disagreement among the families”.

“Today, the adversarial forces has exerted more influences and flexing its muscle through their hegemonic neo-imperialist agenda of cultural entrapment and inducement not because Nagas have lost sight of our political history and rights but because of the disunity and divisions created within our society by the prolonged adversarial strategies that has complicated the complex Naga political issue,” it said.

Reminding that Nagas are one people, the Naga Hoho said no authority on earth should be allowed to divide the Nagas, either emotionally or physically.

“Nagas are bound to be together till eternity as it is God’s given natural right and aspiration. Therefore, we must collectively find out a way for unity of purpose so that lasting peace with acceptable political solution to our land is ushered in,” it stated.

It also appealed to all the Nagas ‘to contribute their intellect and resources towards inclusive unity of all the Nagas across the length and breadth of the Naga homeland to bring about lasting peace’.
