Kohima: Nagas residing in Delhi observed a candlelight vigil at Nagaland House, New Delhi on Monday night to show solidarity with those killed in Mon district.
The Naga Students Union Delhi (NSUD), the Delhi Eastern Nagaland Union (DENSU) and the Naga Peoples Movement for Human Rights Delhi (NPMHR) jointly organised the vigil, condemning the brutal “massacre” of 14 civilians by security forces.
“The murder of these innocent lives is a bleak reminder of the decades long-suffering and suppression of the Nagas under the draconian rule of AFSPA,” a joint update said.
As it condemned the “inhumane act” of the Paramilitary commandos and Assam Rifles, it reasserted their “unflinching support” to the families of the victims, and the Konyak people.
“We are together in this fight for justice,” the statement added.
Further, it condemned the barbarity of the Indian Armed Forces, and sought that the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) be revoked.
