Chang­ing the Sys­tem

Southasia - - EDITOR’S MAIL -

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.
