Fears grow among Christians in Nepal

Concern about security is growing following the bombing of three churches

Fears are growing among Christians in Nepal about their future security, according to the charity Aid to the Church in Need.

Concern about security is growing following the bombing of three Protestant churches last month which coincided with a vote on whether Nepal should be restored as a Hindu nation.

Although no one has claimed responsibility for the attack, pamphlets published by the extremist group Hindu Morcha Nepal, who want to make Nepal a Christian-free country-were found at the scene.

Hindu Morcha Nepal’s pamphlet states: “We warn all foreign Christian religious leaders to leave this country immediately and we invite all those who have been converted into Christianity and have become Christian religious leaders to return to their ancestral religion.”

Nepal’s new constitution was promulgated on September 20 making it federal democratic country with secular values.

“We are praying and hoping that no more churches will be vandalised or bombed as the New Constitution is in favour of secularism. Meanwhile we are committed to continue our relief and restoration services to the most needy people of Nepal” remarked a source close to the Catholic Church in Nepal who requested anonymity.
