Nepal Needs more of Shanta Chaudhary from every community.
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
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
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
