Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) today expressed serious concern over the August 12 clash between Assam Rifles and NSCN (I-M) in Ukhrul, in which some NSCN (I-M) activists were killed. The NSF president Mutsikhoyo Yhobu while expressing resentment over the action meted out by “occupational forces” termed the incident as “violation of human rights and break down of cease-fire ground rules”. He maintained that such action signified “random functioning of the forces”. Also, the NSF pointed out that in the process of negotiating peace and maintaining tranquility by various responsible and individuals through dialogue such action would bring no solution for “Indo-Naga” problem rather sabotage the cease-fire and peace process. “In a democratic society, every individuals or group of likeminded have their own right to protect and safeguard its own land and jurisdiction,” the federation asserted, adding that it considered “occupational forces as lack of understanding.” Further, the NSF has urged upon the “occupational forces” to restrain and not to sabotage the long aspiration of the Naga in bringing about rightful and just peace process and early settlement of the “Indo-Naga” problem. It may be mentioned that in the wake of August 12 clash, the apex Naga organizations in Manipur including UNC, All Naga Students’ Association Manipur and Naga Women Union Manipur have demanded Centre to withdraw all Assam Rifles/Para-military forces from Naga areas and redress human rights violation allegedly perpetrated upon the “innocent” Naga people.
