The United Naga Council (UNC), in the strongest term, condemned the "most barbaric act of killing more than 13 peaceful Naga civilians by the Indian security forces (Assam Rifles) on December 4, 2021, at Oting village of Mon district, Nagaland".
The UNC said that it was "most unfortunate" in the recent history of the Nagas. "Such a condemnable act of terrorism caused upon the innocent villagers is in no way pardonable under any circumstances," said the UNC.
"Todays’ insane action of the security forces critically unfolded their hypocrisy to the slogan of Friends of the Hill People," the UNC pointed out. It further said that Nagas need to rethink "their intentional attitudes of cruelty and savagery behaviour".
It then said, "We will not be deterred by any amount of such bruits and barbarism till our political goal is achieved," the UNC asserted.
The Naga body then "shares the grief and pains of the bereaved families, relatives and their near and dear ones and also pray that their souls rest in peace". The UNC also said that it "prays and wishes" all the injured a speedy recovery.
