Tax in the name of Christ?
Iuto Shohe Naga: Much had been said and done in Nagaland just recently but yet again the UG’s are issuing Demand slips in the heart of Dimapur. All in the name of NAGALIM OR (not FOR) CHRIST. Working under the aegis of Nationalism, is NSCN a resource of profit? Here is a demand receipt received from one of the groups as seen in the picture yesterday demanding a sum of Rs 60,000 yearly tax in a shopping complex in circular road Dimapur. Irrespective of the size of the shop every shutter is deemed to pay the said amount on or before 30/1/14. If this happens to be a foul play by some maniacs, the concerned authority should responsibly look into the matter.
Arrest all Asians if fermented Soyabean is a drug in India
Awomi SumiMac: “I NEVER KNEW AXONE (FERMENTATED SOYA BEANS), NAGA TRADITIONAL FOOD WILL MAKE ME LOOSE MY DIGNITY AND PUT ME INTO SUCH A BIG MESS/TROUBLE”.
With deep pain and anguish I am laying down this message at the NAGA BLOG, to all the intellectuals of Nagas and also to all my beloved Indians who will see this message. Specially to the Narcotic Control Bureau Bangalore.
TRADITIONAL FOOD IS NOT DRUGS and CANNOT BE CALLED DRUG, NO MATTER ITS COLOR OR SMELL. AND PLEASE I AM NOT A DRUG PEDDLER NEITHER ANY OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS DO.
My first cousin sister who (whom I always have been addressed as and will be my Sister) lives in US wanted some Local homemade food and so I inquired at the DTDC Kammanahalli Bangalore and parceled some AXONE (fermented soya beans) and chilly powder last week. But the NARCOTICS CONTROL BUREAU Bangalore suspected it to be some kind of drug, and the ironic part is they tested AXONE and found it positive for drug called HASHISH. And by the way I could not even pronounce the name “HASHISH” the first time when the officer in charge told me.
On this faithful afternoon the 25th Jan 2014 (Saturday) my wife and I were shopping in and around Kammanahalli when we got a call from DTDC Office around 4:30pm to come within 5 to 10min to collect some money which they were supposed to give us. But instead found a team of NCB and immediately as we came there, the NCB team started interrogating us and they took us to our house and searched our home. They did not find anything from my home also they could not arrest me as I am not a drug peddler. However they told me that they have found positive Hashish in the parcel, and the report has already been sent and that I had to accompany them to their office at Yelahanka Bangalore for the formalities.
The officer in charge (superintendent) told me this is the law and that I have to co-operate with them and so I have done what was told to me and signed the papers. Which I believe will be sent to the court. And the entire sample that they found and 3 different package of chilly powder and 2 different pack of fried AXONE has also been repacked, which will be send to the laboratory for the final test. The result will be notified within a month. Officer in charge also told if found +Ve they will arrest me if not I am free.
This fermented soya bean was made from Zunheboto Nagaland North East India by a mother for her daughter. Unless her mother (it could be anyone’s mother for that matter) is insane/psycho, she will not in anyways send a Drug to her daughter or son.
I am also giving the detail (Ingredients) of the Fried Axone which is with the NCB Bangalore now.
1. Soya beans
2. Mastered Oil
6. Angothi. Zanthoxylum rhetsa also called the Indian pepper. But definitely not Drug.
I am definitely not sure what machine or device they used to Test/Examine Axone. But there were no Drugs or Drug ingredients in the above.
I am posting this for awareness as I am still waiting for the final report.
I do not mean any controversial arguments on this post.
Also please do not make a bigger issue by immature/non-relevant comment.
