Naga International Support Center

Those in Nagaland responsible for committing these Crimes against Humanity must be apprehended; those responsible for harboring the culprits must be held accountable
In sharp contrast to Peoples themselves the Government of India is convinced that the Nagas of the states of Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Manipur are part and parcel of India. With respect to that the Government of India is responsible for upholding justice and peace. Yet, it tolerates designated camps of fighters with which it has agreed to a cease fire and let them operate freely; even if these fighters openly declare war on an entire tribe.
The Khaplang Group served the Tangkhul Tribe with a quit notice and in the wake of that many a Tangkhul and members of other tribes have been mercilessly killed. Because the designated camps of the Khaplang group are protected by Government Forces both the state Governments of the stated mentioned as well as the Central Government of India in Delhi are directly accountable for tolerating these culprits to operate in this despicable manner.
The Naga International Support Center urges the Government of India to drastically change its policies, to severe its ties with those it has protected and to restore law and order in the land of the Nagas.
The Naga International Support Center also calls on the Security Council of the United Nations Organization and stresses imminent intervention is needed. Even though a relatively small conflict this conflict, due to crimes against humanity being committed, will spin out of control with insurmountable repercussions long term psychological as a result. And this with a decade old peace talks aimed at reaching an honorable solution.
When the Government of India does not control the horrific situation Crimes against Humanity will persist and long lasting psychological scars will be the heritage of future generations Nagas; ethnic cleansing and indiscriminate killing are Crimes against Humanity.
