The NSCN-IM has reaffirmed to "uphold and protect Naga national principle at any cost" during its “Emergency National Assembly” held at General Headquarters of the Naga Army, Hebron Camp, off Dimapur on Tuesday.

Top NSCN-IM leaders from various regions participated in the Tuesday’s assembly which began at 10: 30 am and culminated around 4 pm.

 “As compelled by an unpredictable political situation, the Naga people are bound to take a national decision in order to save the future of the Nagas. Therefore, today, in this august National Assembly, before God and before the Naga people, we, the members of the National Socialist Council of Nagalim, under the leadership of Chairman Q Tuccu, Vice-Chairman Tongmeth Wangnao and General Secretary Th Muivah solemnly take this decision to uphold and protect Naga unique history and Naga National Principle at any cost,” the declaration stated.

According to the NSCN-IM, the above declaration, which is christened as “Naga National Decision”, is interpreted that, there will not or cannot be any solution without the Naga flag and the Naga constitution.

This emergency programme of the NSCN-IM was convened amidst reports that things are not going well in the peace talks with the Government of India.

Meanwhile, the venue of holding the programme at the Naga Army’s General Headquarters speaks volumes. NSCN-IM usually chooses the Council Headquarters to hold programmes.

The “Naga National Assembly” then reaffirmed the declaration of “Nagalim for Christ”.

The “Naga National Decision” further stated:

“We do believe and therefore give our reaffirmation to our Fathers' Faith that Nagalim for Christ is God's word revealed to the Nagas and the subsequent commitment of the Nagas to God.

“We do believe and therefore give our reaffirmation to our Fathers' Faith on the existence of eternal God Almighty, the Creator and Sustainer of heaven and earth.

“We do believe and therefore give our reaffirmation to our Fathers' Faith that salvation is found through faith in Jesus Christ alone.

“We do believe and therefore give our reaffirmation to our Fathers' Faith that faith is a matter of persuasion and conviction of individuals. Therefore, we are opposed to imposition of one's faith upon the other and forbid forcible conversion of faith in any manner”.

The declaration also stated that a joint resolution adopted on the basis of the expressed will of the people of all faith in Nagalim in the Naga National Prayer Summit held on October 25, 2018 at Agri Expo, Dimapur. The Council of Nagalim Churches reiterated the above adopted resolution in its conference on April 30, 2022.

The Naga National Assembly then unanimously decided that in the “year of our Lord Two Thousand and Twenty-Two at General Headquarters to designate the Third Sunday in October as Naga National Prayer Day”. “Therefore, the Collective Leadership do hereby proclaim that the third Sunday in October shall be observed as Naga National Prayer Day,” it added.
