Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) has said that the movement for Prohibition of Liquor launched by the pioneering Church leaders would be upheld with all sincerity to protect the people from the evils of alcohol.
In view of this, the NBCC said that the government of Nagaland would be urged to implement the Nagaland Liquor Total Prohibition (NLTP) Act 1989 in letter and in spirit, and also to amend the loopholes in some of the Act. The Church appreciated the honest government officials, specially from the excise and police departments, for their contributions in upholding the law.
The NBCC also informed that prayer and fasting would be held in all the Churches from 6:00 a.m to 12 noon on July 25, to pray to God to free the land from all social evils particularly to free family, village, colony, town, society and State from the evils of liquor.
The Churches have been directed to launch out more aggressively the caring ministry for the alcoholics, drug addicts, HIV and AIDS and other needy people with Christian love and action. It has appealed all citizens to abide by the Prohibition Law and to do away from the use, consumption, sale and manufacture of liquor which is injurious to health (of the body, mind and soul), leading to family and social disorder.
The NBCC said the mentioned statements were approved to publicize among the churches and general public during an emergency joint meeting of the executive committee and the Liquor Prohibition Committee of the NBCC on July 15. The statement was issued by Rev. Kuzierang Thou, Rev. Dr. L. Anjo Keikung and Rev. L. Kari Longchar.
