‘Hindu monarchy and Hindu Rastra inseparable part of Nepal’
People’s Review | Kathmandu, Nepal | 26 Nov 2014:: Upananda Brahmachari is a strong Hindu Nationalist of Bharat and an expert on Bharat-Nepal Relations, who in the ‘All India Hindu Convention” (26 June 2014) passed a resolution with solidarities and support to declare Nepal as a Hindu Nation. Recently he visited Nepal to gear up the Hindu Rashtra and Hindu Kingdom movement spreading in Nepal.
Excerpts of an interview by Dirgha Raj Prasai to Brahmachari:
Q. How do you feel about your Kathmandu visit so far?
A. I am privileged to visit this holy Hindu land and ancient kingdom of Nepal. I feel at home and I really think this as my ancestral home. I have had the opportunity to offer prayers in Pashupatinath Temple, Gorakhkali Temple, Seat of Yogis and Supreme Guru of Nath sect – Baba Gorakhnath, Parashar and Vyas caves and many other Holy places.
The people have preserved the nature and beauty of this country which is truly mesmerizing me. The people here are very friendly, honest and gracious. I feel the people here are striving to make Nepal as a Hindu State and a Hindu Kingdom.
I have come here under the invitation of Maharaja Prithvi Narayan Shah Memorial Foundation, Nepal. This Organization is genuinely working for a Hindu state and kingdom. And as far as I am concerned, and the different people I have interacted with truly support this cause.
Apart from that my visit here has been truly remarkable.
Q. BJP is in power in India. Narendra Modi is the powerful Prime Minister of India and also known as a devout Hindu nationalist. What can we expect from him?
A. First of all, I have to say that I am not a BJP activist. I have come here as a devout Hindu activist to support the cause of the Nepalese people struggling for a Hindu state.
You know that I am the Editor of the website Hindu Existence (www.hinduexistence.org) and my purpose is to bridge the gap between the Nepali people and various groups who are struggling for the restoration of Nepal as a Hindu State.
As a political analyst, I am of the opinion that the BJP government should protect the interests of Hindus all over the world including Nepal and India.
The Indian people chose Modiji as their Prime Minister because they considered him as a strong Hindu nationalist. So, Modiji cannot ignore the interests of the Hindu people wherever they might be. Even Nepalese living in India supported and voted for Modi.
I think BJP without any question will support Nepal as a Hindu state which will help preserve Hindu tradition and culture in Nepal.
The Indian people also support the cause of Nepal as a Hindu state. Organizations like RSS, VHP and Hindu Janajagriti Samity have passed their resolutions for the re-establishment of Hindu Rashtra in Nepal time and again. I am seeing that the people here are fighting for establishment of Hindu Rashtra and Hindu Monarchy again in Nepal. I think that Hinduism and the monarchy in Nepal are inseparable and its interests should be protected at all costs.
Q. What do you think about parties who are supporting Nepal as a secular state and leading the country towards disintegration in the name of a secular and a republic state?
A. See, change in political stand points is a very difficult thing to guess and different people have different ideologies and viewpoints. But, what I have seen here is that the political mindset of the people and the parties are now changing gradually in favor of a Hindu state and Kingdom. I also met with various leaders of various parties who are also supporting this cause. They are not happy about Nepal being a secular state and international factors that are interfering and hampering the stability of the nation that was once declared a ‘Zone of Peace’.
I also vehemently condemn the role of European Union and CIA to use Nepal as a strategic geographical point for their vested interests in the region. These foreign agencies are promoting Christian Conversion through various INGOs that is hampering the harmony of this country. It is seen that some big Maoist leaders in Nepal have also embraced Christianity and running their anti-Hindu agendas. All these are very dangerous for the interests of the common Nepali people.
The thing I find very ridiculous is that agencies like European Union and CIA never oppose monarchy in UK, Norway, Holland or Japan. But they strongly oppose monarchy in Nepal. If those countries still have monarchy, then why shouldn’t Nepal also be a Kingdom?
Q. Why do you support constitutional monarchy in Nepal?
A. The Hindu view of Raja (king) denotes as Prajanuranjak (the benefactor of the people). This tradition dates back to the ancient times of King Janaka, Shivi or Harishchandra. People of Nepal will definitely support Nepal as a kingdom as the King is nothing without its people therefore it works for the best interest of the kingdom and for its people.
Q. Do you also support India as a Hindu state?
A. Yes. We (The Hindu Organizations) are working to establish India as a Hindu state.
BJP must justify the demands of Hindu people all over India.
There are more than one billion Hindu people in the world and not a single Hindu state. While Christians have 157, Muslims have 52, Buddhists have 12 and even Jews have their own country so far. If so, why not Nepal and India as Hindu nations?
It is a legitimate claim of the one billion Hindus all over the world. We will materialize that. Thank you everybody in Nepal and to all the Hindus in this world.
