Demand For Restoring Nepal’s Hindu Identity Growing Stronger In The Himalayan Country

FEBRUARY 16, 2019

Rampant conversions by Christian evangelists has led to a call for jettisoning the ‘secular’ tag and restoring Nepal’s national and cultural identity.

Twelve years ago, Nepal’s interim constitution that led to abolishing the monarchy in this erstwhile Himalayan kingdom, also made the Hindu-majority country a ‘secular’ one. And that led to evangelical Christian missionaries flooding the country and converting poor and vulnerable Hindus to Christianity. 

Today, nearly 10 per cent of Nepal’s estimated 30 million people are Christians. As per the country’s 2001 census, Christians formed barely 0.5 per cent of the country’s population; the general secretary of the Federation of National Churches of Nepal, C B Gahatraj, boasts there are nearly 3 million Christians in Nepal today.
