Respectable solution for permanent peace

 Nagas were a part of the allied force in the first World War, 1914, but were forgotten, thousands of Nagas as a labour crops were taken to France. Nagas joined the allied forces willingly and participated in whatever capacity they could contribute in different fields of activities in defence of the allied forces. Nagas were never captured, subjugated or enslaved by the allied forces but Nagas participated as a partner. It is regretted that Britishers who lead the allied forces of the World War fails to acknowledge thousands of Nagas who went to Europe purely in defence of the allied forces in whatever ways leaving their country and their families sacrificing everything for the success of the British allied forces. I believe ignoring the Nagas participation in the World War history as free and independent people is a crime against the Nagas, Human Right Organisation and the International Court of Justice should come into the rescue of the Nagas for such a humiliation to the Nagas when of other race of the world are enjoying freedom and independence Nagas are made to suffer under the occupational force of India till today.

Even the Second World War was fought in the Naga country at Kohima famously know as ‘the Battle of Kohima’, 1944, in the land of the Angami Naga, where she has extended her full cooperation to the British troops in the form of intelligence, guide and the assistance whatever required helped the British defeat the Japanese in the Battle of Kohima. The Nagas support to the British in this war cannot be ignored by the British.

Nagas participated in the World War as a free people but today Nagas are struggling for its identity and her freedom of state because the responsible nations have forgotten the Nagas of her contributions in the World War.

The imbroglio between India and the Nagas continued since the British left India and the Nagas. The Nagas struggle is for its independence and it is not a secessionist movement. It is a matter of rights therefore it requires justice. India should exercise its matureness and openness as a responsible nation and do justice to the Nagas respecting her rights.

I also would like to appeal the government of India considering the fact reality of the core issue which determine the Naga peoples life and her aspiration, the Indian Government should exercise fact finding of the modus operandi for acceptable solution in the interest of both party and not to hover on the illusive imaginary rhetoric and shrill which has been displayed by various agent. The savage approach has sawfly the good intention and the impasse continued with loss of human life from both sides. Any bias attitude will not bring permanent solution but will be repressive of future peace which will be just a repeat of past accord and agreement. Respectable solution is the only way for permanent peace.
