In as a lot as facial construction is totally different, so is the meals habits. Thus, racially or ethnically, Nagas and Indians are nowhere close to to share something comparable. Our origin of civilization can also be totally different. Whether or not we belong to backward civilization or advance civilization it doesn’t matter. Nagas are happy with their wealthy tradition and traditions. Let no drive on earth impose alien tradition on the Naga individuals. Depart us alone as we have now been for many years.

The Nagas are equally concern on cruelty to any form of animals. However to drive us to cease consuming canine meat on the bottom of cruelty to animal isn’t acceptable to us. What about different animals or birds? What to eat and what not eat isn’t anyone’s enterprise to implement or resolve. That is towards the pure freedom of alternative of meals. Our kitchen menu is of proprietor’s alternative and never one thing to come back from any authority. At this time is canine meat ban. What subsequent tomorrow? Nagaland state authorities can’t be so spineless to give up all the things to the Authorities of India with out first taking its individuals into confidence. There are different canine meat consuming nations.
