Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Kathmandu | Sept 13, 2015:: The political situation of Nepal is moving fast and the adoption of New Constitution in Nepal is also in an ultimate position. If you see these things meticulously, it comes very clear.
At latest, CPN-UML Vice-Chairperson Bidya Devi Bhandari said on Saturday that the much-awaited constitution would be promulgated on coming Monday, September 14. Better late than never. But CA (Constituent Assembly) members and the main parties killed much time to calculate and cherish their own political benefits, ego and futures, but now they are in their sense that killing of much time further will draw more troubles in Terai, of Madhesis and obviously by pro Hindu Rashtra people in Nepal. As the common people in Nepal are disgusted by the lengthy CA process, there is no way except the New Nepal Constitution within next 24 hours to check the people’s unrest.
In the meanwhile, through some unique developments, Indian Ambassador to Nepal Ranjit Rae called on top leaders of major three parties (Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and UCPN-Maoist) and encouraged them to deliver a new constitution with broadest possible consensus among the concerned stakeholders, including agitating Madhesi parties. As per confidential source, Rae categorically emphasized (before two out of three parties) upon the Delhi’s concern about the pro-Hindu State in Nepal and against any colonial thumping of Vatican or Beijing.
Fortunately, RPPN – the fourth largest party in Nepal has returned to CA after getting requests from other three. At the last stage of CA, pro Hindu Rashtra Party RPPN decided to boycott the Constitution making procedures pointing out the obstinate mentality of many CA members and some manmade dilemma against majority people’s demand for a Hindu Rashtra in Nepal. Through this development a clear signal goes on that the presence of RPPN, a Pro Hindu Rashtra Party in the CA is very much essential for those political parties are visibly against it. In one point of time RPPN demanded referendum in Nepal as the most suitable way to judge the people’s demand for a Hindu Rashtra.
We know that Nepal was constituted as a secular state after the endorsement of the Interim Constitution in January 2007, which was formally ratified in May 2008 under a pressure of Maoist political lobby. Till then Nepal was existed as the only Hindu Rashtra and Hindu Kingdom in the world. In the name of secularism and modernization in a fabricated ‘New Nepal’, the new entrants in the power pampered the religious minorities and culturally marginalized groups against the majority Hindus in Nepal. The politics in this phase was inculcated in various corruptions and extrusions of the Nepali people including the detrimental aggression of China and Christianity in the soil of Nepal.
In the process of a new constitution is being finalized for Nepal, numbers of Hindu groups and religious leaders are demanding that the country again be declared a Hindu Rashtra (State) maintaining a traditional respect to the Hindu Kingdom of Nepal . All the prominent Hindu groups have been organizing rallies in various cities around the country and the capital reclaiming the Hindu Rashtra statute in the new constitution. The Hindu nationalist party, Rashtriya Prajatantra Party Nepal, has also been demonstrating in numerous cities demanding a Hindu state and the removal of the term ‘secular state’ from the constitution of Nepal. so far.
Many political personalities in the Nepali Congress and the Communist Party of Nepal (United Marxist Leninist) have also opposed to a secular state identity, demanding the inclusion of ‘religious freedom’ instead of ‘secular state’ in the new statute. Retaining a Hindu state in Nepal has been marked as an effort to stop proselytisation by Christian missionaries and the cow slaughter in Nepal. It is also reported that some Muslim leaders appear to support the Hindu state identity, arguing that the country’s present secular status has increased their religious insecurity under the threat of Christian conversion.
As a matter of fact people’s struggle for a Hindu Rashtra again in Nepal is seen in a highest level through this decade. Presently, four Hindu young men have been continuing their Fast-unto-Death at Kathmandu’s Khulamanch since 31st August. There was a huge rally at Boneshwor area on Saturday in support of the four youths on fasting. The protesters warned the authorities to declare Nepal as a Hindu Rashtra and save the lives of the youth on fasting.
On the other hand, some non-Hindu groups like National Council of Churches of Nepal (NCCN), Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) – Nepal Chapter, the Nepal Buddhist Association, and many hill indigenous groups (i.e. non-Hindu Mongolian communities and some Muslims groups have repeatedly argued an unambiguously secular state not just one that endorses ‘religious freedom’. These non-Hindu groups are working under the critical influence European Union, Vatican, Chinese and Pakistani Embassy in Nepal aiming to stop the high chance of reinstating the Hindu Rashtra in Nepal in the name of multi religiosity and cultural diversity. They say, individual’s right to religious freedom is guaranteed as a fundamental right in Article 23 of the Interim Constitution, so there is no need to replace the term ‘secular state’ with another one such as ‘religious freedom’. But, the 2047 BS (1990) Constitution of Nepal is described as “a multiethnic, democratic, independent, indivisible, sovereign, Hindu and Monarchical Kingdom’.
This identity of the traditional Himalayan Kingdom has no animosity with the Nepali people. But, the power sharers in the present system and the Maoists are trying to break Nepal in the name of Federalism and Secularism. Majority people in Nepal are now disgusted with the Maoists and their collaborators and they are dead against these stigma of Federalism and Secularism only to stop Hindu State in Nepal. Maoists and other corrupts in Nepal are now totally exposed. They are good for nothing for the people in Nepal, as per majority opinion.
In democracy, majority must be granted. 80% people in Nepal are supporting the cause of a Hindu Rashtra in Nepal, this cannot be overturned with a mimic view of 20%, and otherwise a referendum is the last refuge. Without a referendum, the people’s recognition for a Hindu Rashtra in Nepal cannot be snatched anyway in the name of CA or anything else.
To avoid any further crisis in Nepal including the chance of civil war, Nepal must be declared as a Hindu state removing its artificial ‘secular’ status. Nepal is virtually a ‘religious’ Hindu state and not a ‘secular’ anyway any means.
As per a secret source, the ultra leftists in Nepal will be challenged vehemently this time by the peace loving common people in Nepal and India is to extend its all effort to keep peace and culture of Nepal intact at any cost. This gesture of India will be greeted by the people of Nepal as a sign of love and responsibility for Nepal and not as interference or intimidation anyway.
In the turning of wheel, Nepal is advancing towards a Hindu Rashtra again.
