After almost one and half months, a combined service of the Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR), NSCN (I-M), GPRN/NSCN and NNC/FGN was held Sunday at the Ao Baptist Church Dimapur which was also attended by various NGOs.
In a brief speech, NSCN (I-M) education ‘kilonser,’ Vikiye Awomi said that the group stood by the proclamation given by its chairman Isak Chishi Swu on January 13, 2007 for reconciliation. Talking about division and killing among the Nagas, Vikiye asserted that the Nagas have to forget their past animosities and work towards true reconciliation. “Are we not brothers and sisters? We have to dump our past,” he asserted.
NNC/FGN ‘kilonser of alee affairs’ Puthai Lam lauded the FNR for its ongoing reconciliatory efforts and urged the Forum to hold their ground firm whatever the circumstances might be for the sake of the Nagas. He told the FNR not to leave the Nagas halfway in the reconciliation process but take them to where they should be to achieve reconciliation. He affirmed that the stand of the NNC/FGN was achieving sovereignty and becoming independent. He urged fellow comrades to stand by the Covenant of Reconciliation signed by their respective leaders.
GPRN/NSCN finance ‘kilonser’ C. Singson in his speech urged every political group to keep up the spirit of reconciliation stating that things could go wrong anytime if they were not sincere in the reconciliation process.
“We know the issue and if we don’t unite, we also know what the consequences would be,” he articulated.
Singson pointed out that the Nagas have always been talking about oneness but queried if they have ever shown the world that they were actually one. “Let us unite and show the world that we are friends (one),” he urged all other Naga political groups.
FNR convener, Rev Dr Wati called upon members of the Naga political to accept each other and carry on the reconciliation process with renewed zeal. He said though Nagas were all one, Satan was always scheming devilish plots to let them kill one another but this, Rev Dr Wati said, could be overcome through reconciliation.
Rev Dr Wati delivered a brief sermon on the Last Supper which Jesus had with his disciples and later presided over the Holy Communion symbolizing that the Nagas were one. The Holy Communion was received by the congregation present.
Earlier, FNR member, Rev Phughoto Aye, who chaired the Church service attributed the progress in reconciliation process to the Naga political groups who demonstrated their commitment to it and urged them to continue giving the same support. Special songs were presented by NNC/FGN and NSCN (I-M).
