Hindus expect the Government of India to make efforts in a similar direction
A former Deputy Prime Minister makes such a demand; however, in India, no former or present Minister or people’s representative makes such a demand.
There are many countries in the world for Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, etc. However, for Hindus, who are a majority in India and Nepal, there is not a single country. This is a disgrace for the Hindus ! To achieve this, Hindus should unite for establishing the ‘Hindu Rashtra (Nation)’ at least now.
Maharajganj (Nepal) – Nepal should once again be declared a ‘Hindu Rashtra’ in the interest of Nepali citizens, demanded the leader of ‘Rashtriya Prajatantra Paksha’ in Nepal and former Deputy Prime Minister of Nepal, Kamal Thapa on the occasion of ‘Constitution Day’ on 19th September.
Activists of Rashtriya Prajatantra Party are carrying out a signature campaign on this issue. Mr. Jitendra Kumar (Secretary, Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Nepal) said, “There are 81.3% Hindus in Nepal. The status of Hindu Rashtra in Nepal was taken away and the original nature of Nepal was destroyed. This is the time to give Nepal the status of ‘Hindu Rashtra’ again”.
Nepal was declared a ‘Secular Nation’ in 2008
After the Maoist agitation in 2006, the process of regime change in Nepal gained momentum, and Nepal, which was a ‘Hindu Rashtra’, was declared a ‘Secular Nation’ in 2008.
Religious population in Nepal
At present, Hindus make up 81.3% of Nepal’s population, Buddhists 9.9% and Muslims 4.4%. The Kirats (local religions) make up 3.3%, Christians 1.4% and Sikhs 0.2% of Nepal’s population.
