Naga support to Myanmar rebelsNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:03 am ICT by admin
The rally, called by the ‘Nagaland People’s Association for Human Rights’ saw the participation of hundreds of people protesting against the killing of monks in Myanmar.
Several protestors took part in the protest on Wednesday.
The Secretary General of the Nagaland People’s Association for Human Rights accused the military of torturing people who went against the Government . He wanted the world to support the people of the country who want to live in peace.
India shares a 1,645-km border on its east with Myanmar and relations between the two countries go back centuries, to the time Buddhism was born in the sub-continent and spread across the region.
New Delhi initially supported Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy. It, however, had to maintain cordial relationship with the military regime in the 1990s and later.
Around 3,000 people are reported to have been killed since the crack-down by the military 19 years ago.
The current protests in Yangon were sparked off against the fuel price rises, but developed into a mass uprising against 45 years of military rule, led by monks considered the moral core of the Buddhist nation. (ANI)
