Prohibiting Naga Peace negotiators from leaving country to attend General Assembly of UNPO is a violation of human rights

21 December 2012, New Delhi:



Democratic India and its violation of human rights
Prohibiting Naga Peace negotiators from leaving the country to attend the general Assembly of UNPO is a violation of human rights

Nagas are members of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization based in The Hague, the Netherlands. When en route to Geneva, Switzerland, they were stopped by immigration on order of the National Investigation Agency, NIA, the same agency which is responsible for the arrest and subsequent charges, procuring arms to wage war against the state of India, which were upheld by a court. This Naga, Anthony Shimray, acted on behalf of the Naga leaders who are conducting peace talks with their Indian counterparts. Consequently, if these charges can be taken seriously then obviously these leaders should have been arrested and been served the same sentence as S. Shimray.

In relation to this case two Naga representatives were questioned and were cautioned to not be involved with International agencies.

This is not all! A few days later most of the Naga leadership was summoned by the same NIA to be questioned. So now the Naga International Support Center, NISC, states:

- Nagas do not wage war against India but since 1954 instead are occupied by the Indian Armed Forces
- Nagas do not fight on Indian soil but defend themselves against invaders in their own land
- Peace talks are recognized, by both parties, to be between two nations, meaning that in this continuing conflict India is the invader
- Nagas have nothing against India but its leadership which has proven to be insincere, untrustworthy, arrogant and possessive

Due to the many human rights violations NISC calls on the International community, United Nations, its agencies to protect human rights of the Naga Peoples and urges all concerned to:
- Check on human rights violations by India committed against Nagaland
- Advice the Indian Government to take the peace talks meant to end this almost 60 years old war seriously
- Remind the Indian Government that the right to self determination is a universal right which it has signed as a member of the United Nations
- Urge the Indian Authorities not to drag indigenous peoples into war again
