We all feel very sad and disappointed about the unfortunate incidence that resulted in the

 

death of police SSP Laxman Neupane, seven other police personnels and a two year old

 

child.  Our deepest condolences to the families of these fallen heroes and all those who lost

 

their lives. The nature of the attack on police personnels and the cruel and gruesome

 

killings of these innocent individuals clearly indicates that it was a premediated criminal

 

act by the criminal miscreants who infiltrated the Tharuhat agaitation. This incidence

 

should be analyzed in the light of very provocative statements made by some Madeshi

 

leaders in Tikapur a few days ago. They incited Tharuhat agitators to attack non-tharu

 

Pahades in a bid to secure Tharuhat territory they claimed. Such blatant provocation and

 

incitement for violence against one community by another can’t be considered a peaceful

 

protest by any measure. The assailants armed with axes, spares and batons attacked police

 

personnels in such a cruel and brutal manner while police SSP was trying to calm down the

 

agitators.

 

This is the time that every reasonable mind from all entities (communities, ethnicities,

 

political parties and civil society) come forward with cool mindset and rational thinking

 

and enter into the dialogue with the understanding that no entity can have both, a cake and

 

eat it. Rationally speaking, we all know that a constitution is a document of compromises of

 

all the stake holders. When we surrender rationality to emotions and let provocateurs rule

 

over our emotions, we are all destined to self-destruction and we all become the losers.

 

Shanta Chaudhary, a member of the 1st constitution assembly rightly stated that सबै जाती

 

समुदाय मिलेर बस्नुको विकल्प छैन । नयाँ संविधानमा आफ्ना माग राख्न सबै स्वतन्त्र

 

छन् र हामी थारु समुदायलाई पनि त्यो अधिकार छ । कुनै पनि आन्दोलनको

 

बहानामा हिँसा मच्चाउनेहरुबाट सम्पूर्ण जनता सजग हुनुपर्छ र सरकार झनै चनाखो

 

हुनुपर्छ ।

 

What Nepal needs right now is more of the kind of Shanta Chaudhary from every

 

community/ethnicity, civil society and political parties. The leaders of the major political

 

parties should not delay the process of reconciliation and dialogue to address the

 

reasonable concerns of various ethnic communities with respect to the federalism. Let us

 

not forget that Nepali society is a multicultural, multi-religious and multi-ethnic pluralistic

 

society. The constitutions of a country must address the needs and aspirations of these

 

diverse communities with provisions that can ensure their place in the law of the land.

 

Rational thinking and common human decencies (love, compassion, cooperation, honesty

 

and integrity) are capable of guiding human behavior and morality.  Let us hope reason and

 

rationality will prevail over the racial hatred and political arrogance. Please read Shanta
