Hindu Radicals Demand All Christian Missionaries to Leave Nepal
05 Oct 2015
Katmandu: October 5, 2015. (Reuters) Nepal is a secular state under the new constitution but an extremist Hindu group have distributed leaflets threatening Christians and warning them to leave.
“Christians have corrupted the country,” the leaflet distributed by the ‘Morcha Nepal’ group read.
“Foreign influence have manipulated government decisions.”
Despite this, Christian missionaries are continuing to work in Nepal, Fides sources said.
“Christians continue their mission of dialogue and proclamation of the Gospel of charity towards all,” the source said.
However Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) has pointed out that the new constitution contains an anti-conversion clause that makes “any act to convert another person from one religion to another” illegal.
The new clause is a violation of international treaties, CSW said in a statement.
