Nagaland: Angami Students’ Union Reaffirms Stand Against Indian Armed Forces and AFSPA

Northeast Desk, 18th May: In solidarity with the Naga Students’ Federation, the Angami Students’ Union has reiterated its unwavering stance against extending cooperation to the Indian armed or paramilitary forces.

Strongly denouncing the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) of 1958, the Union labeled it as a draconian measure imposed on their homeland. They emphasized that despite the enduring suffering inflicted by the armed forces, the peace-loving Naga community continues to strive for tranquility.

Demanding the immediate repeal of AFSPA, the Union urged the apex court to restore the human rights of the Nagas by abolishing the Act.

To ensure strict adherence to their directives, the Angami Students’ Union issued clear guidelines:

  1. Reject any form of aid from the Indian armed forces.
  2. Avoid inviting the armed forces to any event or participating in their official events within the jurisdiction.

Furthermore, the Union cautioned all Indian armed forces in Angami-inhabited areas to refrain from actions that could provoke situations contrary to their directives. They affirmed their commitment to mobilize their networks to ensure strict compliance and prevent any violations by individuals, groups, or armed forces.
