Reconciliation must take place at highest level The two-day Naga Convention for Peace and Reconciliation resolved that the Naga reconciliation must take place at the highest level of all Naga political groups and that any political process that sought to realise and exercise Naga rights must be inclusive in nature. The convention held under the theme “Let My People Go” and organized by the Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) concluded at Kohima local ground today. The resolutions adopted in the form of a four-point “statement of commitment” were endorsed by all the representatives of all the Naga national political groups (factions), tribal Hohos, NGOs, church leaders and other organizations present in the convention. “Nagas yearned to see their people reconciled and free from all internal and external conditions that suppressed our dignity for which the commitment was taken,” the statement of commitment stated. While stating that reconciliation was a “praxis” of the being and doing, the convention urged all the Naga people and organizations to genuinely and honestly implement the values of reconciliation. “Reconciliation is about renewal and to enable healing at all levels of society and must take place at the highest level of all Naga political group based on the historical and political rights of the Nagas,” it observed . Also explaining that human search for solution and the human need for reconciliation were simultaneous process, the convention asserted that the realization of Naga reconciliation would hasten the will of the people and said it was the responsibility of all Nagas to sensibly respond and demonstrate their active solidarity and participation for Naga reconciliation. The convention also stressed that the desire of the Nagas to enable “A Common Hope” for all people to walk hand in hand together to create a shared future was paramount. It said the time for callous talks was over and it was time for active and decisive steps towards reconciliation for the Nagas to build a future of hope for coming generations. The statement of commitment was dedicated and prayed upon by the collective ordained reverends present in the function.
