Dimapur August 05: Expressing “shock and regret” over the recent declaration of the NSCN (I-M) banning the Sumi Hoho and Western Sumi Hoho, the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has appealed the NSCN (I-M) to re-consider its stance taken against the two Sumi frontal hohos in the larger interest of Naga people.
“While respecting the sentiments of both the NSCN (IM) and the two Sumi Hohos, we sincerely believe that any differences under any circumstances have to be resolved through mutual respect and understanding,” NSF president Imchatoba Imchen in a press release said. Stating that anything that lacked mutual respect would not serve any purpose, NSF added “our society is too small and such actions will only further make us smaller and weaker. We cannot afford to lessen and devastate our already weak and torn apart society any further.”
