NSCN-IM Insurgency Instigated By China

China Flag.

NSCN-IM has a lot to answer and with it, New Delhi too owes the nation some explanation. Why has the NSCN-IM thought it necessary to station a permanent representative in China even as peace talks with the Indian Government are supposed to be at an advanced stage?

National Socialist Council of Nagaland – Isak & Muivah (NSCN-IM) was founded in China in 1980 under deep influence of Chinese communism and when Th. Muivah, SS Khaplang and Isak Chisi Swu returned to Bharat, they demolished nearly 300 churches and killed hundreds of church leaders, pastors, deacons and evangelists. Earlier, it helped the militants of Naga National Council (NCC) under Phizo. China has great design to slit Siliguri neck and have its control over whole northeast region. But, of late, China appears to be working overtime to back insurgents, even take time off from its monstrous economic pursuits since Delhi has gained ground in reaching possible peace agreements.

NSCN-IM’s chief arms procurer Anthony Shimray was arrested by National Investigation Agency (NIA) from Patna on October 2, 2010. This terrorist leader confessed that NSCN-IM’s general secretary Thuingaleng Muivah had written a letter to senior Chinese intelligence officials nominating a 60-years old Kholse Swu Sumi as NSCN-IM’s ‘Permanent Representative’ to China. The Chinese accepted Muivah’s request and hosted Sumi, thereby, signaling the formalization of the relationship.

Further elusive United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA)’s military chief Paresh Baruah who is currently based in China’s Yunnan province close to the border with Myanmar is provided all logistic support by China. The chief of Manipur insurgent group, United National Liberation Front (UNLF), Sana Yaima alias Raj Kumar Meghen, who is in jail, has also confirmed meeting Paresh Baruah in Yunnan in 2009. What is more surprising and disturbing are the reports of Chinese agents offering to sell surface to air missiles to the rebels of Northeast Bharat. As per reports, a deal with one million US dollar was struck in December 2009 at Chengdu, the capital of China’s Sichuan province and the package included not just supply of the missiles but training in their use.

A 39 year old Quing Wang-the Beijing resident masquerading as a journalist and a Timber company Executive, was picked up by the Dimapur Police from Dimapur Railway Station on January 16 last year. She was on her way to Camp Hebron, the NSCN-IM’s over ground headquarters, 30 km east of Dimapur town. The lady did not possess Restricted Area Permit (RAP) to visit Nagaland and was, therefore, detained and sent back to New Delhi. Quing Wang, the Chinese spy, wanted to meet

NSCN-IM’s top bosses in camp Hebron. It is a mysterious story that Delhi was in hurry to pack her off to China on board a Chinese Eastern Airlines flight on January 21. Her photographs with

NSCN-IM general secretary Th. Muivah, Nepal Maoist Supremo Prachanda and many others which are not so simple pictures found from her lap-top, are an interesting revelation. The spy lady had a four hour long interview with Muivah in Delhi on January 4.

NSCN-IM has a lot to answer and with it, New Delhi too owes the nation some explanation.

  • Why has the NSCN-IM thought it necessary to station a permanent representative in China even as peace talks with the Indian Government are supposed to be at an advanced stage?
  • Why did the NSCN-IM chairman Isak Chisi Swu himself visit China?
  • Has the NSCN-IM kept the Indian peace interlocutors informed of its linkages with Beijing?
  • What is the content of Muivah’s long conversation with the Chinese spy Quing Wang who is said to belong to the People’s Security Bureau, a Chinese intelligence outfit?
  • If Muivah thinks he was giving an interview to Quing Wang as she identified herself as a journalists from Hong Kong, will he be willing to speak at length to an Indian journalist and clarify things?
  • And a question to New Delhi-what was the hurry in deporting Quing Wang?
  • Would China have treated an Indian nabbed in similar circumstances the same way?

As per on-line survey conducted by Nagaland Post, a local daily, 94 per cent Naga wish all sections of Nagas to be included in the peace talk, NSCN-IM leaders are not accepted as the role representative of Nagas. Moreover, Muivah is an outsider. He is a Tangkhul Naga and hails from Ukhrul district of Manipur.

The four districts of Nagaland- i) Mon (Konyak), ii) Kiphire (Yimchunger), iii) Tuensang (Chang, Kiamungan, Sangtam & Yimchuger), and iv) Longleng (Phom) have formed Eastern Naga People’s Organization (ENPO) and students have formed Eastern Naga Student Federation (ENSF). This ENPO and ENSF are demanding secession from Nagaland to form a separate state.

The Naga civil society wants to live with Bharat. NSCN-IM cadres are surrendering to Bharatiya Army. They want to march at par with other developing states of the country. This side, Muivah and his lieutenants are meddling with China and other enemy countries. The dubious role of NSCN-IM is harming the peace dialogue.
