Memorandum for the Worsening Ethnic Conflict Situation in Madhesh/Tarai Region of Nepal
I would like to draw your sincere attention about the emerged on going serious ethnic conflict in Nepal. At present, the Madhesh part of Nepal is in a chaotic situation. The prevailing unrest has begun since December 26 2006. Now the situation is turned into a kind of Ethnic Arm Conflict. I would be very sad to inform you that the major part of Madhesh is like a battlefield. The whole region is shutdown, terrified, bandh, incident of murders and killing, vandalism, arson attacks, street battles, counter attack, arrests, curfews, offices and all business are on halt, and beyond the law and order.
The major movement leading groups belong from Madhesi community who represent from multiparty, multiethnic, multireligions multi-casts, multilingual, multi-geographical and so on. They all demand on equal treatment regarding issues such as caste, religion, or any others social, political, economic values.
The Madhesh governs more than 20 districts of Nepal where approximately 14 millions (apx 50% of Nepalese population) live in this region. Except the Madhesi ethnic groups, other scheduled and deprived group have been also supporting and expressing their solidarity on this the movement and asking government to fulfill the similar demands. These demonstrating groups have been claiming that they are extremely discriminated, far away from national mainstreaming, dishonored, excluded and ignored in state affairs and treated as 2nd class citizen even they have apx 50% total population and major charming land and national ornaments of Nepal.
Within the 3 weeks massive demonstration and protest, people killed; hijacked, factories and markets closed, plenty people badly wounded, few hundreds arrested and few billions dollars of properties destroyed and millions of financial losses attempted in few weeks only. The situation is going to be exclusively worsening and turning into arm violent, which is more than terrible. Peoples lives are in catastrophe and nation are about to ready to hubbub ethnic, and political explosion. There is no proper existence of human rights, press, law and order and social harmony. Therefore, the lives of Terrain are in disaster and burning here and there.
The major demands of the ongoing demonstrations can be concluded as follows which seems very rational and legitimate too. The all political parties, Government and leaders have been expressing personally and political positive attitude and use to give their public speech in favor of the ongoing movement�s demands. However, in practice, state and political parties unfortunately have not been able to address it properly. For this reason, demonstrators and its allied are not convinced, and they doubted on state and political party�s statement and their intentions.
The major of goals of the ongoing movement are to have immediate provision and legal arrangement through constitution
For their natural rights to self-determination, proportional representation in the constituent assembly, restructuring the constituencies based on population, federal system with regional autonomy, legitimate positive discrimination in state mechanism and elimination of all forms of discrimination practiced by the State mechanism. They people also argued that the state mechanism and its rulers have secluded them since last 238 years and their value, as dignified citizen has been shattered.
Therefore, I humbly request to all concerned international community to take immediate action through appropriate diplomatic approaches and effective channel for peaceful settlement of the all-booming ethnic conflict in my beloved country Nepal. I hope your kind help and consideration. Thank you.
I humbly request you to all, kindly take a suitable serous action to resolve the problem that will help to prevent the booming destructive ethnic conflict.
