The GPRN has clarified reports published in some local papers in Arunachal Pradesh that NSCN (I-M) was allegedly involved in converting local people to Christianity by force.
Stating that the report was another “smear campaign” against the good name of NSCN, it said such act of unfounded allegation was done “deliberately” to create negative image of NSCN in the eye of the government of India.
MIP/GPRN in a press statement said Christians had the right to preach the teaching of Christ and the same applies to other religious groups, however it stated that it was important to differentiate between teaching and forcible conversion. Stating that no person can be truly converted if it was not supported by personal conviction, the release added that forcible conversion to Christianity also goes against the very purpose of Christ’s teaching.
Asserting that NSCN believed in freedom of religion and to indulge in “forcible conversion” was never the principle that guided the Naga’s political struggle.
