Condemns violence by ‘radical elements’ on CAA protesters

Tenyimi Students’ Union Dimapur (TSUD) has strongly condemned the continuing violence against students and innocent protestors across the country and universities by “radical elements and State-sponsored groups” during their protests against Citizenship Amendment Act and National Register of Citizens.

The student body called for a symbolic protest and urged all its constituent units to hoist black flags at their respective offices or hoho offices as a sign of anguish and solidarity from 8 a.m. on Wednesday.

Inviting all student bodies and other civil society organisations, irrespective of tribes, to join the symbolic protest, the students’ union said it would be hoisting black flag at its office premises and requested all its leaders and well-wishers to attend the same.

It said black flags could also be collected from its office from 9 a.m. on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, condemning CAA as “diabolical” and against the very tenets of Indian constitution, the basis of which was equal rights and opportunities to all citizens irrespective of their religion or caste, Tenyimi Students’ Union Dimapur  pointed out that the continued autocratic form of governance without listening to the people was a matter of grave concern and undermined the democratic and secular principles of the country. 

The frightening similarity of CAA with the Nuremberg Act of 1935 should be an eye opener for all, it added. Reminding the people that silence was not always the answer, the union said the deafening silence of European countries in the face of initial actions of Hitler had led to the tragic holocaust during the World War II. “God forbid such a thing should happen again,” it cautioned.

Tenyimi Students’ Union Dimapur  also condemned Naga MPs who did a U-turn after so much assurance to the people and voting in favour of the Bill. 

This was stated in a press release by its president Rukewezo Wetsah and finance secretary Pechesin Bukh.
