Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | New Delhi | April 1, 2022:: A senior minister in the Nepal government on Thursday extended his support to a demand to declare Nepal a Hindu state, saying if the majority of the population are in favour, it can be done through a referendum.
Minister for Tourism and Culture Prem Ale, addressing the opening of the two-day Executive Council meeting of the World Hindu Federation in Kathmandu, said the demand to declare Nepal a Hindu state can be considered and if such demand comes he “will play a constructive role”.
Minister Ale was responding to the demand raised by the World Hindu Federation here during the programme. More than 150 representatives from 12 countries, including Nepal, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, United States, Germany and UK, are attending the two-day Executive Council Meeting.
“As the present five-party coalition government enjoys close to two third majority in Parliament, the demand to declare Nepal a Hindu state can be put into referendum,” he pointed out.
Interestingly, amid the demand over declaring Nepal a Hindu state, Nepal PM Sher Bahadur Deuba is now in India and likely to meet his Indian counterpart PM Modi on Saturday. Deuba is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday at Hyderabad House, besides other engagements. The Nepal PM is also expected to visit Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh. As per media reports, Deuba already met BJP Chief J P Nadda and Indian External Affairs Minister Jaishankar.
In a press statement, the Union ministry of external affairs said, India and Nepal enjoy age-old special ties of friendship and cooperation.
“Pleased to call on PM @SherBDeuba of Nepal during his official visit to India. Confident that this visit will further strengthen our close neighborly relations,” Jaishankar said in a tweet.
BJP Chief Jagat Prasad Nadda also expressed his pleasure after meeting Nepal PM Deuba mentioning India-Nepal’s age old close relationship on religion, culture, language and history.
Nadda tweeted, “नेपाल के प्रधानमंत्री श्री @SherBDeuba जी से आज नई दिल्ली में शिष्टाचार भेंट हुई। भारत और नेपाल न सिर्फ पड़ोसी देश हैं, बल्कि धार्मिक, सांस्कृतिक, भाषायी एवं ऐतिहासिक दृष्टि से भी एक-दूसरे के बेहद करीब हैं। मैं नेपाल की उन्नति और खुशहाली की कामना करता हूँ।”
Hindu Rashtra demand in Nepal raised by the majority people there for several times. But, the Maoist and Communist elements in Nepal influenced by China ended the Hindu Rashrtra and Nepal Kingdom status and established there a ‘Secular State’ in Nepal in Sept, 2015. But, the demand of Hindu Rashtra in Nepal is gaining momentum again with the spin of time according the political prevalence of Nepal.
