Imphal, August 29:

Zeliangrong United Front (ZUF) today observed the 91st Jadonang Martyr’s Day today.
In connection with the observance Chairman of ZUF, Jenchui Kamei, in his message said that Haipou Jadonang as a patriot with an indomitable spirit, who stood up to confront and defy, when the land was in turmoil and engrossed in deep and dark battle with the foreigners, 91 years ago.
He stated that Haipou Jadonang was recognised by the British as a potential rebel leader of the people. His rebellion was termed as Naga revolt or also known as Naga Raj. However, his revolt was for Makaam mei; people of the land. The consciousness of Zeliangrong or any other tribe or even India was not perceived by Jadonang except the people of the region he often called Makaam mei. Therefore, concluded that the people of the region were not only Zeliangrong but other people whose culture and tradition are identical to the people of Jadonang. The term Zeliangrong was later inferred to Zeliangrong movement by some writers and scholars as Zeliangrong movement. The fact is, Jadonang’s rebellion was a mass movement of the people irrespective of tribes. He proclaimed that Makaam people will rule over the land and region. The reign of the Foreigners; the British will soon come to an end. This proclamation was a direct threat to British supremacy. It was with this reason that Jadonang was hunted, captured and executed by the British. The British policy has it that the real cause of his death was to conceal and implicate him of a murder case. But the truth cannot be left under-covered. The real caused of his death is not justified by act of implication, therefore the case is criminal offence committed by the British. So, Government of India is morally obliged to deliver justice to the deprived and the deserving people of the land. It was on the dark day of 29th August 1931 that his martyrdom took place and the light of revolution was shown upon the people which later permeate beyond the Makaam region and influence the rest of the Nagas.
“The Day is remembered as the martyr’s Day and not just a day of death anniversary. We observe this day in deep resentment and sorrow over the killing of our patriot under wrong implication and to prove that his death was the death of a freedom fighter and of martyrdom. His martyrdom was not the end of the movement but succeeded with greater influenced by Haipei Rani Gaidinliu. Who later develop the movement into full-fledged Zeliangrong Political Movement,” the ZUF chairman said adding that “our freedom in our land is our birth right for which we set behind us, all comforts, pleasures and loved ones at homes that we may gain it by the price of our sacrifices. Our freedom is the greatest price for which we dare to risk our lives to sacrifice. May our people be awakened and rise up to strive to attain our homeland. May this Day ring the bell of freedom for all to hear and act in time when the call for final countdown comes”.
