‘A little leak will sink a great ship.’
Too much involvement in Nepal’s internal issues is the big mistake for India. Since 1950, South Asia has been in so much turmoil that India undertook the policy of aggressive intervention against the surrounding countries Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
First of all, I want to judge the intention of India on Sikkim in 1974-1975. According to RAW, Sikkim’s Prime Minister the traitor Lendub Dorje, “appealed” to the Indian Parliament for representation and change of Sikkim’s status to a state of India. In April 1975 the Indian army moved into Sikkim, seizing the capital city of Gangtok, disarming the Palace Guards and putting the King Chogyal under forceful house arrest. King Chogyal never renounced his throne and hoped until the end, that justice would win. The Kingdom that had defended its independence for 300 years against powerful neighbors was annexed by India in April 1975 and became the 22nd state of the Indian Union. India annexed Sikkim by staging a dramatic statute assembly election by keeping the Sikkim King separate from sovereignty.
Similarly, India maintains its wish to keep Nepal under its security umbrella. India knows that Nepal can only remain an independent and sovereign country because of its monarchy. Indian interest is not served by the Nepalese monarchy. So, everybody suspects the mysterious conspiracy against the Royal Palace Massacre was created by RAW of India.
Actually, we the Nepalese people have high regard for the Indian people, culture and traditions but not the intervention by Indian leaders. We have to maintain friendly relations with India due to our similar cultural and religious traditions. But sadly, the Indian Government (Congress I) is working to destabilize Nepal through its agents, the current Nepalese leaders.
In Nepal, four years ago (2005), India brought together the Maoist rebels, Nepali Congress, UML and others, with a 12-point agreement for so-called full democracy. The movement that ensued after the 12-point agreement was not an agreement for a republic state. In fact, the movement had stopped only with an agreement between the king and the political parties with the internal consent of the Maoists.
After the agreement, the king handed power to the people, then, India committed to capturing Nepal after declaring it a republic (unconstitutionally, forcefully) through the so-called 601-member Constituent Assembly. Robbers, murderers and those wanted by the law were elected to the constituent assembly.
How could an election, forced upon the country, at the behest of foreigners, gain validity? The answer is that the party leaders and politicians do whatever the South Block and RAW tell them.
Even while walking on the path directed by RAW, Narayan Man Bijukchhe of the Nepal Workers and Peasants Party, one among the seven parties, said India was exerting its influence on Nepal’s political, diplomatic, economic and social sectors. RAW is the main liaison to do this. Saroj Raj Adhikary has written in Nepal Saptahik, a weekly magazine, that ‘India, through RAW, is taking the disgruntled groups of the Terai as a medium to serve its political and economic interest in Nepal. RAW is active in Nepal for the last 40 years’.
Jan Aastha, another Left weekly, writes: ‘former Home Minister Krishna Prasad Sitaula is a man who has close contacts with the Indian intelligence network’. Similarly, whatever he says to former Prime Minister GP Koirala, Dr. Shekhar Koirala exports agents of Indian intelligence agency (26 Dec 2007). When the country is seized by these traitors how can there be peace? The traitors smashed the statues of late King Prithvi Narayan Shah (who unified Nepal before 250 years ago) and the greatest nationalist King Mahendra.
Nepal is in a precarious juncture. Indian from the very beginning wanted Nepalese industries to be closed. It desires to fail the state. The Delhi 12 point agreement of 2005 has been the major cause of disintegrating Nepal. I believe the Nepalese people are ready to fight against the traitors and foreigner’s conspiracy.
His Majesty, the Late King Birendra strongly believed that “Nepal’s history and tradition have bound her people and Monarchy in an enduring and intimate relationship, injecting in the Institution an inherent feature of honoring and being guided by popular will and aspiration of the people.”
Throughout his reign, the welfare of the people was always uppermost in his mind. He always endeavored to live up to their expectations and ensure a balanced all-round development. During his coronation in 1975, he declared free primary education throughout the country and also proposed that Nepal be declared a Zone of Peace. Including USA, 116 nations support the declaration of Zone of Peace but India denied it. Nepal has had ties with India since the Muslim rule there, but Nepal always faced a threat from India. In the name of democracy (Indocracy), India always plays the Drama with Nepalese agents.
The Nepalese people had to bear the sudden loss of their beloved ‘Monarch’ in a dreadful and unanticipated incident that occurred in the Narayanhity Royal Palace on 1st June 2001. His Royal Highness Crown Prince Dipendra (born 1971) was in a coma in hospital, was declared king. His Royal Highness Prince Gyanendra Bir Bikram Shah, brother of His late Majesty King Birendra was proclaimed regent in accordance with the Constitution of the Kingdom of Nepal – 1990. King Dipendra (at the age of 29) passed away the next day. According to the constitution, then, His Royal Highness Prince Gyanendra was proclaimed king of the Kingdom of Nepal.
The Crown prince Dipendra had fallen in love with Devyani. Being Devyani’s mother birth-place India (Gwaliyar) and her mother’s mother was lower Rana family, the King & queen denied him marriage to Devyani. Then, Dipendra became aggressive towards his parents. At that time, RAW penetrated the story. RAW agents convinced Devyani to hypnotize Prince Dipendra so that he would kill his father and become the King himself. Devyani’s mother was also furious because she herself wanted to marry King Birendra in the past. She was jealous of Queen Aiswarya and wanted her daughter to be queen of Nepal.
After the misfortune incident Dipendra puzzled out and he was nervous. And he shot himself using his left hand, because his eating & writing practice was by his left hand. In that black night Prince Gyanendra was at Pokhara for the meeting of King Mahendra Trust for Nature Conservation.
This is open-secret that Prince Dipendra and Devyani were used by RAW in the Royal massacre. On the massacre night (7-9 PM), she was in Dugad Niwas near by the Indian-Embassy at Lajimpat, and was asking the activities of Prince Dipendra to his ADC, Raju Karki, now he is in America. First of all, PM Girija Prasad sent the message to Indian PM from the Army Hospital by telephone. But, just after the massacre, the next day, Devyani departed to Delhi when Girija was the powerful Prime minister. Mr. B. Dixit has commented – ‘The unsolved murder mystery of Indian PM Lal Bahadur Shastri (PM of India who was poisoned in Masco) and mystery of Royal Palace massacre may be hatched by RAW.’ (Janabhawana, Nepali weekly – 10th Aug. 2009)
After publishing my article in News Blaze, Namrata Dongel comments in News Blaze, Newsletter – USA – 17th Aug 2009 – ‘I saw a documentary on Discovery Channel on 16th august 2009 at around 6 pm, which was about the Royal Massascre. It has presented the story as recited by the eye witnesses and so called Relatives. The actors used in the story are Indians. It presented the views of some of the foreigners closely associated with Nepal, but it didn’t include any of the Nepali people except the King’s relatives. That’s why I thought it must be a work of some Indians to humiliate Nepal in front of the world.’
Similarly, Dibakar Pant (M.N. USA) comments in News Blaze -‘I found his (D.R. Prasai) recent published article titled “India’s Hand in Nepal Royal Palace Massacre – 2001” based on historical and factual reality. Indeed, because of factual positions, dealings and doings, rapprochements and existing policy that India is seen playing with its neighbors, it itself is creating enough ground for a doubt on the issue raised by the writer.’
After the Massacre, Madhab Nepal, the leader of UML suggested forming an inquiry commission. But the next day, he twisted his words, possibly on the advice of RAW. Madhab Nepal was nominated as a member of the investigation team (on the leadership of Chief Justice), but he refused to take part.
To create confusion in the Royal massacre phenomenon, the former PM and Maoist leader Prachanda, and the PM and UML leader Madhab Nepal, have been making empty noises about the investigating of the Royal massacre. Recently, a prominent Journalist Devprakash Tripathi wrote in Ghatana Ra Bichar, a Nepali weekly newspaper, all about the reality and conspiracy of the Royal Palace Massacre, pointing the another madness Tul Prasad Sherchan who was taking responsibility for the Palace Massacre. (12th Aug.2009) [ www.nepal.hk ]
After the Royal Palace Massacre, to point blame away from RAW, the Moaist leader Dr. Baburam Bhattarai wrote, according to the suggestion of P. Harmij (Nepal-Chief of RAW) that King Gyanendra was responsible for the Palace massacre, 2001. (Kantipur Nepali daily Nepali – 6th June 2001 (Bs 2058 Jestha 24)
It is notable that after the Royal Massacre, P. Harmij was appointed the Chief of RAW in India. Then, the romours started that the Palace massacre was organized by King Gyanendra to capture the regime. After the Royal Massacre – 2001, the so-called People’s movement 2005, which was guided by RAW, had two vital agendas – to form a Republic and to create a Secular state. Then, RAW began the Drama to disintegrate the unity of Nepal.
It is necessary to quote S. D. Muni (Professor of J. N. U. and the policymaker of south block and RAW strategist) in his article ‘Dealing with a new Nepal’ in ‘The Hindu’ Daily on 15th September 2008 conceded that India had provided one billion rupees for running the agitation. ‘With those resources along with the guidelines of south-block, they could forge the mass movement. Recently (29 Jun 2009, The Kathmandu Post), then Indian foreign minister Pranab Mukharjee accepted that the Maoist party which was an extremist party and chose violence, was convinced by India and compelled to join mainstream politics.
According to him, they also convinced other mainstream political parties (Nepali Congress, UML) to form a government by including the Maoist party also. Until then, the Maoists were protected and armed by Indians. Within a month of the conclusion of the people’s uprising on 19 May, 2005, Jug Suraiya (columnist) of ‘The Times of India’ (a newspaper run by RAW) described, “India and China must divide and share Nepal as it has now become a failed state.” The culprit leaders (Congress, UML & Maoist) remained silent against the game of the RAW strategy.
History says and everybody knows the monarchy is a symbol of Nepalese unity and nationality. In between the two big neighbors – China and India, the monarchy has been playing a balanced role. So, Nepalese monarchy is the most convincing identity of Nepal’s independence and democracy. King Gyanendra is also a nationalist who can stand with cause and effect on national scenarios.
But the culprit leaders support an ethnic based Federal structure in Nepal. Now, in the Tarai, Indian immigrants are actively campaigning for caste-based Federal states – ‘one Madhesis one state with total autonomy’ to upset Nepalese unity. The Indian Congress should not forget that due to RAW’s naked conspiracy, angry Panjabi and Sri Lankan people killed Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. Why were Indian agents and Mujibar Rahaman (who was made the Bangladeshi president by ‘RAW’ after creation of Bangladesh by separating Pakistan in 1975) killed?
The Indian Congress should also not forget the act of nationalist Bengalese against the disgusting conspiracy by ‘RAW’. Nepalese people within the country or abroad will not keep on tolerating the continued intervention.
At the time of re-popularity of the monarchy in Nepal, Indian media has come up with irrational, irrelevant, and illogical news. The victim Rajesh Gupta and Ateeq Ahmad so-called Nepalese citizen alleged that Prince Paras was working with Pakistan’s ISI and underworld don, Dawood Ibrahim in printing fake Indian currency, which is fallacious news to blame the Nepalese Monarchy. This is another conspiracy to damage the identity of Nepalese monarchy. Nepal and Nepalese treat with contempt the news published in The Times of India (Nepal ex-prince kingpin of fake note racket’ – 1st Sep 2009}, which is totally irrelevant and we Nepalese people fell very sorry to hear such news.
Regarding the conspiracies on Crown Prince Paras, King Gyanendra released a statement (Submitted by admin4 on 1 September 2009) – “No evidence was produced to substantiate the claim that former crown prince Paras was involved in running a fake Indian currency racket (that distributed fake currency manufactured in Pakistan to India through Nepal).”
In the past the Indian media have circulated malicious propaganda about Nepal and Nepalese and never bothered to apologize even after being found in the wrong. It is a most unethical thing to do.’ In 1991, when Sri Lanka’s Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam assassinated former Indian prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, India’s intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing had suggested to the commission probing the killing that Nepal’s then queen Aishwarya could have funded it, a suggestion that was subsequently proved to be false and embarrassing for the Indian government.
The 1 June 2001 incident shocked the nation, when their Majesties King Birendra and Queen Aishwarya, Their Royal Highnesses Prince Nirajan and Princess Sruti Rana along with five other Royal Family members and relatives lost their lives after being fatally wounded during a family gathering at the Narayanhity Royal Palace.
After ascending the throne on June 4, 2001, His Majesty King Gyanendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev had, through a Royal Proclamation, constituted a two-member high-level investigation committee comprising Chief Justice Keshav Prasad Upadhyaya and Speaker of the House of Representatives Tara Nath Ranabhat. In the report made public on June 14, 2001 after extensive investigations, the committee concluded that bullet injuries were the cause of death of all killed in the incident. Summarizing the report at a press conference organized to make the report public, Speaker Ranabhat said the committee had found that gunshots fired by the then Crown Prince Dipendra caused the deaths of their late Majesties King Birendra and Queen Aishwarya and seven others. The heart-rending tragic incident underscored, once again, the unique bond that has always bound the institution of Monarchy and the Nepalese people. That is the reality and evidence of Palace massacre of Nepal – 2001.
