Isak Swu, Th Muivah unhappy over cadres' conduct
Source: Hueiyen News Service / Newmai News Network

Dimapur, January 31 2013: NSCN-IM leaders Isak Chisi Swu and Thuingaleng Muivah today expressed sadness over the way the outfit's cadres are behaving.

"God will never be happy with NSCN if its members keep on doing their own pleasure of works without doing the will of God," said NSCN-IM general secretary Thuingaleng Muivah while the outfit's chairman Isak Chisi Swu said, "If we do not do the will of God, we will be doomed, and the NSCN will be responsible for it" .

Swu further said, "…this is the era of NSCN.

NSCN's name sells both at home and abroad.

We cannot afford to fail this time.

We don't have to blame heaven and earth if we fail.

History says the Romans themselves brought about the downfall of the Roman Empire.

NSCN will also be pulled down by the NSCN themselves.

NSCN will fall when the spirit of 'NSCN-ism' runs out in its members; it will fall when it is not political; it will fall when the policy of its leadership is not people-based; it will fall when its approach to the world is not objective; it will fall when its members are rebellious; it will fall when there is moral degeneration in the set-up.

Above all, it will fall when its members flee from the Lord" .

Swu and Muivah were delivering their speeches on the occasion of '34th NSCN Day' celebration at Hebron, off Dimapur today.

NSCN was formed on this day in 1980 after spitting from Naga National Council (NNC).

During the course of his speech, Thuingaleng Muivah reminded the cadres that God will never be happy with NSCN-IM if its members keep on doing their own pleasure of works without doing the will of God.

"He made a direct reference to the present situation where it demands the members to take the right decision in order to save the Naga nation," said the press comunique issued by the NSCN-IM this evening.

"The world has not stopped, it keeps changing.

But when the people fail to understand the process of change they will be lost because they fail to take the right decision.

NSCN should not fail," Muivah pointedly asked the members to realise where they stand.

The NSCN-IM general secretary then fervently appeals to all the members to take the right decision before God--to forgive their waywardness and mistakes and take steps to save the 'Naga nation'.

"We have to change by taking the right decision to ask God for forgiveness, and there is no other way to save the nation", Muivah stated.

On the other hand, NSCN-IM chairman Isak Chisi Swu recalled the sequences that led to the formation of NSCN.

He said that after the failure of NNC, NSCN was formed in the national workers' meeting at Nokpa, where the historic decision to uphold the national principle of divine right to self determination was taken.

It was finally, approved by the 'national assembly' held at Tonu on this day, the 31st January 1980 .

According to Swu, the NSCN put up an undaunted resistance against the aggression of the colossal forces of the enemies who adopted ruthless means to crush the Nagas.

"Guided by their avowed neo-colonial policy, they used one Naga to fight another Naga.

Instigated one group to fight another group and incited communalism between the Nagas and others with a view to keeping the Nagas divided and suppressed perpetually.

But that could not dampen the spirit of the Nagas.

In fact, the Naga people under the banner of NSCN stood the ground in the face of those horrible situations," Isal Swu stated.

But sadly, some of us have run away and joined forces with the enemies to fight against their own people.

The preacher says, 'They killed God, the Son in the name of God" .

Likewise, those traitors killed their people in the name of people and pulled back the wheels of history in the name of revolution.

They are still working unceasingly to abort negotiations in the sweet name of unity.

These are bitter realities, the NSCN-IM chairman further stated.

"At long last, the Indian leaders of both military and politics admitted that military solution is not possible.

A political problem calls for a political solution.

The official recognition of the unique history of the Nagas by the government of India is a bold step toward solution, which should be appreciated.

The government of India should also appreciate the steps taken by the Nagas.

In course of the political negotiations, both the parties have taken the positive step to understand each other's difficulties for working out a solution that brings genuine peace between the two people," Swu said. Isak Swu then said the Naga 'national' cause is a divine cause.

"If we do not do the will of God, we will be doomed, and the NSCN will be responsible for it.

Because this is the era of NSCN.

NSCN's name sells both at home and abroad.

We cannot afford to fail this time.

We don't have to blame heaven and earth if we fail.

History says the Romans themselves brought about the downfall of the Roman Empire.

NSCN will also be pulled down by the NSCN themselves.

NSCN will fall when the spirit of 'NSCN-ism' runs out in its members; it will fall when it is not political; it will fall when the policy of its leadership is not people-based; it will fall when its approach to the world is not objective; it will fall when its members are rebellious; it will fall when there is moral degeneration in the set-up.

Above all, it will fall when its members flee from the Lord," the NSCN-IM leader cautions.

To drive home his point, Swu compares a case of a doctor treating a patient.

"As a doctor diagnoses the diseases of patients, so we too need to diagnose the social illnesses of our people," Swu opined.

He then claimed that Nagas are strong in political, military and religious fields, but weak in economy and science and technology.

"When other people look for market for selling their products, the Nagas hunger for purchase of foreign goods.

Others build our houses; others stitch our cloths and most of our goods are imports.

We are too dependent on others.

We will rise only when we build up our weak points and rebuild our damaged areas.

Everyone of us should be a productive force.

It is said, "He who does not work neither shall he eat." Our fathers lived by the bread and honey of their own make.

Let us re-inculcate the spirit of self-reliance and move forward to overtake others who are far ahead of us in many fields," Swu stated.

The NSCN-IM chairman then stated that Nagas need a secure home of their own where they decide their future by themselves" .

We cannot build our villages or cities without home.

We cannot leave our fate in the hand of others.

Our revolution is about change of fate, not change of life.

This revolution will certainly decide our future," he said.

"Last but not the least, we have done the best we could with all our available strength and means, but we have not yet reached the destination.

I strongly believe that God will renew our strength to continue our journey by His grace," he added.
