We are not Indian: 4 outfits call out to boycott R-Day

24 Jan 2017 - 11:32am | Syed Miraz Ahmed

In something that has become synonymous to Republic Day celebrations in Assam, 4 more outfits (KLO, NDFB, NLFT and PDCK) have taken to appeal to the masses to boycott the event this year.

The outfits consider Western South East Asia (WeSEA) to be a land of gold dust, a heaven of distinct cultures and customs and an ocean of peace wherein people have been living independently since time immemorial.

“We have waited too long for our freedom. We can no longer wait. Now is the time to intensify the struggle on all fronts. To relax our efforts now would be a mistake which generations to come will not be able to forgive. The sight of freedom looming on the horizon should encourage us to redouble our efforts. It is only
through disciplined mass action that our victory can be assured. We call on our all compatriots to join us in the shaping of a new Western South East Asia. The freedom movement is a political home for you too. We call on the international community to continue the campaign to isolate the apartheid regime,” the communiqué issued to the media stated.

They feel that India is exploiting them by draining away their economy and oppressing them by assimilating their cultures and customs and suppressing them by imposing AFSPA.

“By promulgating the AFSPA, colonialist India is creating havoc in entire WeSEA. As WeSEA is not a part of India we are not Indian and will not allow to perform the Republic Day celebration in our land,” the outfits equivocally asserted.

Terming that India is not democratic but “autocratic and kleptocratic”, the outfits called out for a total shut down on January 26, 2017 with effect from 12.01 am to 11.59 pm and to engage concerted refusal by not attending or gathering at any governmental offices, public places within 24 hours of that day.

“Let us not deceive ourselves by observing the 68th Indian Republic Day; it is like stabbing on our
back for 68 years by the colonial Indian government,” the outfits echoed.

Emergency services are however, exempted from the shut down.
