Press statement against Patricia Mukhim

The National Socialist Council of Nagalim(NSCN) is not new to Patricia Mukhim as she is notorious for spewing derogatory comments against the Nagas in general and NSCN in particular, in social media as well in print media. Not surprisingly, she is exposing herself as the destructive agent of intelligence agencies.

This time round she has done again to make a mockery of the Naga unique history, comparing it to tribal warfare and head hunting.

Nagas are proud of our unique history. Since time immemorial, each individual Naga village was a sovereign republic. No invading forces or kings could ever exert their dominance over the entire stretch of Naga territory. Even the British post 1885 adopted the policy of non-interference of the Naga Hills after they overran Assam.

On January 10, 1929, the Naga Club on behalf of the Naga people submitted a memorandum to the Simon Commission that said,If the British Government want to throw us away, we pray that we should not be thrust to the mercy of the people who could never have conquered us themselves and to whom we were never subjected to; but to leave us alone to determine for ourselves as in ancient times”.

On 14th August, 1947, the Naga National Council (NNC) declared Naga independence and the message was sent to the King of England, Secretary General of the United Nations Organization (UNO), the offices of all embassies in New Delhi and the Government of India. On 16th May, 1951, Naga National Plebiscite was held, and the result was 99.9% in favor of Naga independence.

Nagalim was made a part of Indian Union neither by conquest nor by the consent of the Naga people. Unlike the then princely states that went to form the Indian Union, Naga leaders never agreed to be a part of India. They neither signed the Instrument of Accession nor did they ratify the India Independence Act, 1947.

This unique history of the Nagas was recognized by the Government of India on 11th July, 2002. This laid the foundation for the signing of the historic Framework Agreement on 3rd August, 2015 to form the basis for the Indo-Naga political solution that is honorable and acceptable.

Hail the Naga people who rise up boldly to face the untruth and lies spread by anti Naga people. The truth must prevail and in God we put our trust.
