Reacting to a news agency report “174 terrorist, insurgent groups in India” that appeared in a section of local dailies on October 31, the Naga National Council (NNC) has termed the report, which included NNC among the terrorist/insurgent groups, as “outrageous” and far from the truth. Stating that to the Nagas, the Government of India was the terrorist and not NNC, joint secretary, NNC, W Shapwon in a press release clarified that since time immemorial, Nagaland had never been a part of India.“Therefore, the Nagas can never be an insurgent or a terrorist group in India. And the Nagas are not terrorizing India, but only defending the sovereignty of Nagaland since India shamefully invaded Nagaland in 1954,” NNC said. Maintaining that Nagas did not kill any Indian civilian or burn down Indian villages, NNC however said India had been terrorizing the Nagas in the form of burning down Naga villages, committing mass massacres, raping Naga women, destroying Naga properties and torturing the Nagas inhumanly for the past more than half a century. NNC further reminded that till India withdraws her Armed Forces from Nagaland, the Nagas would have no peace, and that Nagas would continue to fight against India’s “illegal occupation of our country.”
