Solemn Declaration of the Existence
National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN)
The Naga National Council has failed to carry through its solemn national
trust ad finem. It did not condemn the acts of treason of the downright
traitors, nay, it has deliberately worked in collaboration with them
and treacherously reacted to the genuine stand taken by the competent
people and patriots in the front. Nagaland is left skating on thin ice.
Truly, the sovereign existence of Nagaland is more at peril than ever
before. Where is the organisation that will safeguard the freedom of
Nagaland from the failure of the NNC? Where is the way to save Nagaland
from the treacherous impasse the Naga National Council had led the people
into? We are revolutionary patriots; we shall never relinquish our country
to any force. To us, our faith in God, the freedom of Nagaland and Salvation
of the people in Socialism, are external and unquestionable; we have
chosen them and can never part with these realities. It is because life
has meaning and that is in freedom alone. Indeed, our Nagaland will
forever refuse sit perish together with any leadership or organisation
that has failed and betrayed her cause, that has no promise of future
for her people. We, therefore, make this solemn declaration of the existence
of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland with its manifesto in
We stand for the unquestionable sovereign right of the Naga people
over every inch of Naga territory wherever it may be and admit of no
other existence whatever.
We stand for the principle of people's supremacy, that is, the dictatorship
of the people through the National Socialist Council and the practice
of Democracy within the organisation.
We stand for Socialism. Because it is the only social and economic
system that does away with exploitation and ensures fair equality to
all the people.
We stand for the faith in God and the salvation of mankind in Jesus,
the Christ, alone that is… "Nagaland for Christ." However, the individual
freedom of religion shall be safeguarded and the imposition of the faith
on the others is strictly forbidden.
We rule out the illusion of saying Nagaland through peaceful means.
It is arms and arms again that save our nation and ensure freedom to
