Ethnic conflict in Nagaland

Ethnic conflict in Nagaland

The ethnic conflict in Nagaland, in northeastern India, is an ongoing conflict, since 1993, fought between the Nagas and the Kukis.[citation needed]

Initially it started in Manipur between the Thankhuls, (who wanted to overthrow/drive away the Kukis living in Ukhrul district of Manipur) and Kukis in Manipur. The various groups involved in this conflict include, among others, several rebel groups, the "National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muivah)" aiming for a Christian religious state based on Maoism,[clarification needed] the "National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Khaplang)", aiming to establish an independent "greater Nagaland", and the "Naga National Council (Adino)".[citation needed]

The first insurgencies occurred in the early 1950s. They subsided gradually or were repressed in the early 1980s. In 1993, violence erupted again between the Nagas and the Kukis

Nagaland Rebels

There are several rebel groups operating in Nagaland. These include

  1. Naga National Council, a political organization active in late 1940s and early 1950s, that became separatist under Angami Zapu Phizo.
  2. 'National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muivah)': formed on January 31, 1980 by Isak Chishi Swu, Thuingaleng Muivah and S.S. Khaplang [1]. They aim to establish a ‘Greater Nagaland’ (‘Nagalim’ or the People’s Republic of Nagaland) based on Mao Tse Tung’s approach. ’
  3. 'National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Khaplang)': formed on April 30, 1988 because of differences among the Naga tribes. Its objective is to establish a ‘greater Nagaland’ comprising the Naga dominated areas within India, and contiguous areas in Myanmar.
