Changing the System
It is encouraging to see how minorities in different regions and countries around the world are now beginning to find a voice to express their concerns and demand equal rights for themselves. In this day and age, when people are more aware of their rights as citizens and members of the community, governments are beginning to tread very carefully when it comes to addressing the needs of its citizens.
The facts that Mahadeshis in Nepal are raising their voice against the discriminatory treatment meted out to them and are demanding a separate state for themselves is a positive sign; yet, the possible repercussions that could arise as a result of this development may not pose well for Nepal as much of its investments are concentrated in the region. Here’s to hoping that a solution that appeals to both parties is reached soon.
