Kohima, Nov 06 (UNI) The Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC), while reviewing the present insurgency situation prevailing in the Naga society, has lamented that it is deeply penetrating the society.
A release, issued here today by NBCC general secretary Rev Zhabu Terhuja, stated that the misuse of resources and opportunities by underground elements was provoking bitter frustration and vengeful hatred among the people.
The NBCC Executive Committee, during its recent meeting, regretted the internal strife among the Naga factions and arbitrary killings by their cadres, leaving the Naga society weaker than ever before.
The apex Church body also said the public were aware of the sacrifices of some veteran national workers and the difficulties they had to face to uphold their political position, but at the same time, the public were also equally aware of the failures and shortcomings of those conducting the Naga struggle.
It also stressed that the public expected them to be more responsible for the consequences of their denunciations and actions.
The NBCC stated that there were both individual as well as corporate shortcomings and all Naga tribes were in need of acknowledging their own mistakes and wrongs so that the leaders could find better ways to take the Naga people forward.
The NBCC, acknowledging the Church as a part of the developing society's failure in meeting the challenges and needs adequately, urged upon the Church to keep renewing its legal commitment to the society's aspirations to be a just and fair society.
