National Flag Code 2022: Har Ghar Tiranga campaign – Know the rules and right way to hoist Tricolour
0 Comments

The Angami Students’ Union (ASU) has termed the Deputy Commissioner, Kohima, ordering the mandatory hoisting of the Tricolour in every house as dictatorial in nature. A press release from the ASU said the directive was unacceptable to the Nagas as “we cannot be told to follow something which is extraterrestrial to our culture and natural existence.”

The ASU stated that “the Naga flag, recognized from near and afar, and many lives have been lost defending it for 76 years” and asserted that it is “our determination in proclaiming to the world that we shall strive to be a free nation, free from being dictated of how we should celebrate freedom.”

It therefore asked the Deputy Commissioner, Kohima, to refrain from imposing mandatory purchase of National flag in Angami homeland. ASU questioned “why each and every citizen are forced to purchase the Indian national flag supposedly through deduction of government fund meant for the villagers as well as forcible sale in business establishments.” The union opined that, if at all the Indian national flag should be hoisted for three days, it should be at one’s liberty and not forceful imposition.
