HENB | Kathmandu | Sept 14, 2015:: Secularism will be retained in the new constitution of Nepal and not the Hindu State as it is passed today by two third majority in the Constituent Assembly in Nepal. President Ram Baran Yadav will announce the new constitution formally on coming Sunday, September 20. But, the majority Hindus are not ready to accept it.
As the Constituent Assembly resumed voting on individual articles of the constitution and amendment proposals registered on them, the CA ensured that the nation will be secular in the new constitution.
The CA rejected amendment proposals registered by Kamal Thapa, Anuradha Thapa, Deepak Bohora, Shivalal Thapa and Bishwendra Paswan among others on Article 4.
Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal’s Kamal Thapa and Rastriya Prajatantra Party’s Bohora had demanded that secularism be removed from the constitution and Hindu state be mentioned instead.
After CA Chairman Subas Chandra Nembang announced that his proposal was rejected, Kamal Thapa had demanded split voting.
As the CA Chair began split voting, only 21 CA members stood up in support of the proposal. As the CA Rules requires 61 persons to begin the split voting, the voting was not done.
The joint proposal tabled by Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and UCPN-Maoist, however, was endorsed by two-third majority. Hence, secularism was retained in the Article 4.
The erstwhile Hindu state, Nepal was declared a secular state in 2007 after the success of the gory people’s movement hatched by the Maoists in 2006 that finalised the abolition of the Hindu monarchy in Nepal.
During a public opinion collection held in July, majority of the people preferred the word “Hindu” or “religious freedom” instead of using the term “secularism” in the constitution of Nepal.
Aggrieved by this decision, protesting Hindu people carrying yellow and saffron flags clashed with security personnel at New Baneshwar area in the Capital on Monday afternoon with a demand that Nepal be declared Hindu state. Nepal has more than 90% Hindu population as believed.
Police resorted to lathi charge and used water cannon to disperse the agitating Hindu activists as the latter dismantled the barricade and tried to enter the prohibitory area near the Constituent Assembly building.
Blowing conch, the protesters wanted to march towards the CA when police intervened them.
Following the police action, an irate group vandalised a UN vehicle with blue licence plate that diplomatic missions use.
The protesting Hindu youths are still continuing the Fast-unto-Death in Khulamach in Kathmandu since last 15 days. As per latest reports, the present Govt is keeping a keen vigil upon the Hindu movements in Nepal for a Hindu Rashtra.
One youth on fasting and convenor of Rashtriya Hindu Yuva Mach, Sagar Katwal writes in his facebook timeline, “Day 15…Fast onto Death for Sanatan Hindu Rastra Nepal…After PM Sushil Koirala’s formal invitation for table talks day before,our team is back from a heated meeting scheduled today morning with our 9 point Demand..Talks team from govt. comprising PM Koirala,Krishna Sitaula,Mahesh Acharya, Narhari Acharya,Dilendra Pd.Badu faced our 9 member talks team..Day 15..This is merely a number,we are not gonna end our Fast until and unless our 9 points demand’s reached..

Prime Minister Sushil Koirala called Hindu Yuwa Amaran Ansan (fast unto death) for talk today morning. Hindu Yuwa Amaran Ansan had presented 9 points. Koirala said he can consider 7 points and 2 points he cannot.
