Dangerous confession

March 9, 2020 09:10 am

In January 2020, in a festival to mark Tharu culture, Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ made what by any standards is an unusual statement.  He rejected the idea that the 17,000 deaths from decade-long conflict could be blamed on him.  But he readily accepted responsibility for 5000 deaths.  Certainly some organisations have clearly been responsible for many more deaths than this.  In the case of the Nazis and Khmer Rouge, to name but two, they were responsible for millions of innocent deaths.  But this sort of perverse number game does nothing to diminish the significance of Prachanda’s admission.

Rein in Crusher Mafias

January 12, 2020 07:35 am

The ‘murder’ of a 24-year-old activist in Dhanusha on Friday by ‘crusher mafia’ spells disaster for our federal republic. From Kathmandu to local levels, politicians and mafia have been looting state resources with impunity. The murder of Om Prakash (Dilip Kumar) Mahato is a manifestation of larger issues of deep-seated corruption within our system. Dilip was spearheading a campaign against illegal mining of sand and aggregate in and around a local river in his hometown. Life of a promising engineer is cut short, and with it, dreams of his loved ones shattered. That a young man could be murdered for fighting for a just cause tells a lot about the kind of state we envision for our future generations.
