May God whom we trust and sustain us comfort them at this hour of grief and sorrow,” the NSCN-IM said tonight. Saturday`s killing had come after the Naga leaders had conglomerated in Kohima from May 13 to participate in the 3-day prayer programme for the Naga reconciliation.Organised by Naga Shisha Hoho Prayer Group, leaders of the Naga Hoho, the United Naga Council (UNC), Naga Students` Federation (NSF), Naga Motherrs Association (NMA), Naga Women Union Manipur (NWUM), Eastern Naga People`s Organisation (ENPO), Eastern Naga Students` Federation (ENSF), Naga People`s Movement for Human Rights (NPMHR) and of course, Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) participated in the 3-day event.The Naga underground leaders had also attended that programme. The programme under theme, `call for the Nagas to pray for redemption` was held at Naga Shisha Hoho Prayer Centre Pruzie, Kohima.This programme had come at a time when the Naga reconciliation process initiated by Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) has been a blow-hot-blow-cold state of affairs.As recent as last month, there had been media war and occasional clashes between NSCN-K and NSCN-IM.In the month of March, NSCN-IM leaders Th Muivah and Isak Chisi Swu had arrived in Dimapur for the `highest level meeting`. However, the meeting of Naga top leaders involving Th Muivah, Isak Chisi Swu and S S Khaplang and also leaders from NNC could not take place due to some `technical` problem. After camping in Dimapur for about two weeks, Muivah and Swu went back to New Delhi. However, inspite of these developments the Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) does not lose its patience. The Forum for Naga Reconciliation is instrumental in halting the three Naga underground groups from the fierce factional clashes that were witnessed in Naga areas until the early part of 2008. The Dr Wati Aier led FNR after its formation had engaged numerous football matches involving the three warring Naga underground groups and Naga civil society bodies. Several conclaves convened by FNR had also been held both in Nagaland and abroad.
