Caste-based discrimination

Nepali Janta

Nepal is a country known as a peaceful country. Nepal is a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, multi-lingual and multi-ethnic country. This is a country with indigenous tribes. Nepal is considered a culturally rich country. It is a country full of different ethnic groups, religions, cultures, etc. It includes different languages and cultures that are creating a rich and unique culture. Nepal’s national identity depends on cultural and ethnic diversity. Unity in Nepal’s diversity is seen as an important national heritage that needs to be maintained and strengthened. After the unification of Nepal by the late King Prithvinarayan Shah, the state adopted the concept of unity in diversity. There is a saying in Nepali that “Nepal is a common flower garden of 4 castes and 36 castes” which means (Nepal is home to 4 castes and 36 sub-castes).

The great poet Laxmi Prasad Devkota had said, ““मानिस ठूलो दिलले हुन्छ जात ले हुदैन”.” Let’s get rid of superstition, let’s get rid of untouchability !! Introduce a decent Nepali citizen.
But even in this 21st century, some people and societies are still discriminating on the basis of caste, religion and culture. Caste is of two kinds, one is girl caste and the other is boy caste but our society does not understand this. People are all the same, everyone’s blood is red, the only difference is that some are black and some are white and some are short and tall. Due to this narrow minded society of ours, Nawaraj BK of Rukum had to lose his life due to mismatch in love marriage. A 20 -year-old man from the Dalit community met Sushma Malla, a resident of Chaurajahari Municipality-8. They fell in love. But it was not easy for this couple. As the boy belonged to the BK family, it was not easy for the couple, known as “untouchables and lower castes”, to meet each other in the village. However, within a year of the relationship, the couple decided to tie the knot. But it was not easy. As discussed, the boy went to Sushma’s house in April last month to convince his parents. However, caste-based discrimination is still deeply ingrained in the society, with Sushma’s parents binding their daughter to B.K. Did not agree to tie. The couple didn’t care. They wanted to get married. Last Saturday, at 10 am, Vic went with his relatives to Sushma’s house to pick her up.

However, Sushma’s family knew about the incident. They called the neighbors for help. A group of neighbors arrived. Under the leadership of Dambar Bahadur Malla, chairman of the Chaurajahari municipality, he and his neighbors started throwing stones at Vic and his friends. They chased Nawaraj and his friends jumped into the Bheri river and swept away to the border of Jajarkot and Rukum districts. Their plan to marry Nawaraj and Sushma ended in a catastrophe. Since Nawaraj came from the Dalit community, neighbors and local representatives were also against the relationship. They were killed by their neighbors.

Another Dalit boy Tikaram BK also lost his life in the incident. Four people are still missing. Both Nawaraj and Sushma Malla wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. The caste boundaries could not stop the couple from trying to be happy, accepting each other. Neither Nawaraj, his family nor Sushma thought the story would end in a tragic tragedy. Navbaraj and his friends were brutally murdered on Saturday night. The fact that only a boy should be killed for his crime in order to love an “upper caste” girl casts a long shadow over our struggle to end racial discrimination. While the law of our country prohibits such discrimination, the matter has not moved forward. It often seems like we take a few steps forward and then go back to the ages. When does this march go dark? When will our authorities take such crimes seriously? It is a pity to see that it is a sin to love and what should be the caste in love. What kind of religion is this when there is a need for blood in the sick curtain? Life is birth and death, everyone must leave the world one day, so don’t be proud of being a big caste, rich, big religion. There are only two types of caste, female caste and male caste and the world is run by male caste and female caste and not by any religion or caste. Those involved in Nabaraj’s assassination must be punished so that it becomes a turning point in our country’s most dangerous behavior. Racial discrimination is the biggest sin. Humanity is a great religion, so don’t discriminate on the basis of caste, religion or culture. We are all equal and make a good thinking and let’s develop the country. Don’t discriminate on the basis of caste or religion.
