Nepal Wants Monarch’s Guardianship


Nepal has been standing on the verge of dismemberment over the past six years. When the relationship between the king and the people has been detached one can easily imagine, Nepal can’t remain safe and unified if monarchy is actually abolished from the country.

In a country with such geographical and ethnic diversities Nepal will fall into a severely dangerous situation because of the tug of war for power and money. This can be avoided if there is monarchy because monarchy is always impartial politically and of the political parties. All of us are against if there are anomalies within the royal institution, but those things could be sorted out through negotiation with the monarch. But, it is our unfortunate that the politicians have learnt no lesion from their past mistakes.

To make no mistakes is not in the power of man, but from their errors and mistakes that wise and good learn wisdom for the future. Constitutionalism is the way of the nation. But the profounder of parties don’t like the follow the norms of the constitution and existing laws.

There is establishing the anarchism by such destructive activities. The leaders of Nepal Congress, UML, Maoists and other don’t like to improve their mistakes. And then, why the are traitors disturbing the King Gyanendra in his visit in Magdhi, Baglung, Prarwat ?

The permanent institution- ‘Monarchy’ can put unites the cordial relation between Nepal, India and China. In between the two big neighbors-China & India, the monarchy had been playing a balanced role. Nepalese monarchial system has been supporting-‘One China policy’- Tibet as an integral part of China. But, in the absence of Monarch- RAW (India’s the Research and Analysis Wing) and CIA (Intelligence agency of America) approach their agendas to destroy the Nepalese identity, unity and the Chinese integration.

Nepalese monarchy is identified the most convincing identity of Nepal’s independence, cultural unity and safeguards the Indian culture and peace also. I think, majority Indian people also want peaceful Nepal with monarchy. The Constituent Assembly is expired already.

The Interim constitution is also expired. Now, Nepal is in unconstitutional stage. Nepalese people do not want any kind of unconstitutional authoritarianism. They want only full democracy with political stability, peace and good governance. The Nepalese people no longer want the unconstitutional rule. So, there should reinstate the 1990 constitution with amiable Hindu monarchy.

The traitors-agent of RAW and CIA have no right to stay in regime without the mandate of people because their Interim constitution (Pandora Box) has already expired-27 May 2012 when the Constituent Assembly had expired without formatting the new constitution.

It is true that there are many countries which do not have monarchy still they could remain independent and prosperous. But in a diverse country like Nepal, monarchy is the only basis of national unity and Nepal cannot be compared with other countries. Indian conspirators are taking some deviant leaders of the political parties on their shoulders with the sole aim that it will be easy for them to control Nepal if monarchy can be displaced.

Some communist parties take monarchy as the root cause of Nepal’s all woes. But, this is not correct. Nepalese king has ever acted or walked on the path which is against Nepal’s national interest. But, ii is known-Nepalese Communists are agents of foreigners.

Nepal could remain an independent and sovereign country only because of monarchy. The monarchy was pivotal in integrating Nepal, establishing democratic and just society at par with the modern world. But why are the political parties so averse and negative towards monarchy? It is true that there are many countries which do not have monarchy still they could remain independent and prosperous.

Nepalese king has ever acted or walked on the path which is against Nepal’s national interest. Gorkha was one country since ancient time. This country is the result of the unification of 54 small countries or fiefdoms under the leadership of the monarchy.

Many countries where monarchy was displaced have now ceased to exist and several other have fallen into anarchy and civil war. Therefore, it will be totally inappropriate without knowing fully the ground realities. It was not for whether to keep monarchy or not.

The constituent assembly is just a representative organization to formulate a new constitution and it does not have any right to displace monarchy. Can the future of the country be decided just because so called political parties ganged up together? America and NATO in the past shed blood in Vietnam, North and South Korea, East and West Germany, Cambodia, Afghanistan and Yugoslavia, are now trying to drag Nepal into a civil war for Christianity and Free-Tibet to break China. Nepal is the origin of Hindu & Buddhist.

This is the land where their civilization began. As Nepal is the only Hindu country in the world with a Hindu king, Hindus all over the world have a great respect and faith for this country. Nepalese around the world and Nepal’s well-wishers are anxious about this conspiracy against monarchy by some deviant leaders. The 12 points agreement was worked out of Delhi. All these destructive works were carried out from Delhi. The republic was declared by the force of Indian leaders.

It is a matter of grief that the Maoist, Congress, UML are trying to dig up a well when there already is water in our rivers. Nepal will not become a heaven on earth just because monarchy is actually abolished and republican system ushered in. When Nepal has already received so much respect and identity for being a Hindu kingdom, why are Nepalese trying to finish off its identity?

The conflict between the political parties and the king came up because of the mistakes and blunders of Nepali Congress and the CPN-UML and the authoritarian thinking of the Maoist. Why the Maoists are minimizing this truth forcefully? The Maoists should understand the glorious history of Nepal’s sovereignty with the monarch. Observing the political scenarios of Nepal, A Humanist-Switzerland writes- ‘It is wise to restore Constitutional monarchy in Nepal: A monarchy which works under a constitutional which delimits the rights and duties of monarch as well as the citizens and other people in govt. and the society. The constitutional monarchy should be modern and progressive’.

Some people lacking information about Nepal’s geo-political stand point along with the cultural history as the king remained symbol of unity in diversity take as an obsolete and ancient institution, but not all countries with monarchy are deprived and destitute. In the context of Nepal, the political parties can always get along with monarchy. Even in simple terms, in republican countries with parliamentary system, a person biased towards a party becomes the president.

Already presidential election is expensive there is added fear that the fighting between the communist and the parliamentary parties could break up the country. History is evidence that the parliamentary parties, mainly the Nepali Congress and the UML, who came to power after 1990 completely failed to steer the country and they handed over power to the King in 2001. Later when they failed to get position and power they climbed on the shoulder of the Maoists to launch an anarchic struggle by the hints of the notorious Indian intelligence-RAW.

The King has no role in bringing this sorry state of this country. So, Nepalese people shall not remain quiet if these political parties try to destroy the identity of this country, their tradition and the basic foundation of this state.

Therefore, this uncertain and precarious situation can only be averted if a balance can be maintained among nationality, monarchy and parliamentary democracy. Nepal’s independence, sovereignty and democracy can never be safeguarded by abolishing monarchy. Now, the only way would be the acceptance and restoration of benevolent and people-oriented monarchy. There is, thus, no way other than to form a national government of all sides, reinstating the 1990 constitution including the king, through a broad conference and find a way out to solve the country’s problem.
