Stop Killing In Nepal
This video is about the ongoing violence in Nepal during the constitution building process. More than 40 people are dead, including 35 Nepalis of Madhesi origin and 8 policemen during the political protests. The Government of Nepal has resorted to the use of excessive force for controlling crowds of protesters which has resulted in a large number of casualties, some policemen and a majority of protesters.
National and international human rights agencies have reported the ongoing declining human rights condition. The core of the issue is the protest by the marginalized Madhesi and Janajatis (Indigneous Population) who are sidelined from the constitution building process. The protests are occurring mostly in the southern Nepal where people are increasingly isolated and discriminated based on ethnicity. The violence is fueled by irresponsible communal statements made by the ruling three party leaders who claim that killing few will not make any difference to the constitution making. In fact more than 50% of population is dissatisfied by the constitution draft. Government is adamant not to include the marginalized factions in the process.
Please share this video to depict the other aspects of the ongoing protest which are being covered by the national media influenced by the ruling class.
