Addressing an interaction organised at the Osho Shubham Meditation Center in South East London on Friday, General Katawal said interference from international forces in Nepal was inevitable if we couldn’t keep our house in order. “If we could develop our own national security policy, economic policy and political system on the basis of national consensus, no foreign power can dictate us,” he added.

Saying that he was an optimist, General Katawal said he believed that collective wisdom of Nepalese will prevail and Nepal will move towards the path of peace, progress and reconciliation. Continue reading

अन्तरदेशीय अपराधको जालोमा नेपाल – Narayan Adhikari

Transnational crime - Narayan Adhikari
पुस ५ गते थाइल्यान्डको बैंककस्थित एक विश्वविद्यालयमा भएको नेपाली विद्यार्थी अपहरणको घटना सेलाउन नपाउँदै पुसको २१ गते फेरि मनकामना घुम्न आउँदा भारतीय पर्यटक अपहरणमा परे। यी माथिका दुवै घटनामा अन्तरदेशीय अपराध हुन् र दुवै घटनामा नेपाल प्रहरीले सफलता हात पार्न सफल भयो।
सामान्यता अन्तरदेशीय अपराध भन्नाले सीमापार हुने अपराध हो। यो अपराध खासगरी कुनै पनि एउटा देशमा मात्र सिमित नभई अपराधीहरुले एक देशमा बसी अर्को देशमा अपराधिक संगठनको विस्तारै गर्दै घटना घटाउन सक्दछन। हालको दिनहरुमा अन्तरदेशीय अपराधले धेरै देशहरुलाई आक्रान्त पारेको छ। खासगरी मानव बेचबिखन, लागूपदार्थ ओसारपसार, अवैध हतियारको कारोबार, अपहरण र अवैध मुद्रा तस्करी हरु जस्ता अपराधहरु अन्तरदेशीय अपराध भित्र पर्दछन्।

puja bohara news1

A recent op-ed by a gang rape victim in Nepal has caused a stir in the mountainous country. Rape and other kinds of violence against women are prevalent in Nepal and many of the perpetrators get away.

Puja Bohara, a student in her final year of school, says she was drugged and raped by Sagar Bhatta, a book shop owner, and Amar Awasthi, a photographer, in March 2012 when she visited Bhatta’s store to buy some papers. The two men were sentenced to 13 years in prison and fined Rs 50,000 (about 500 US dollars) each by the Baitadi District Court for the crime. But the following year on April 28, 2014, the Mahendranagar Appellate Court overturned the decision and acquitted them.

नेपालमा बढ्दो सुरक्षा चुनौती

दोस्रो विश्वयुद्दपछि संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिकाले राष्ट्रिय सुरक्षामा मुलत: प्रमुख चार कुराहरु समाबेश गर्यो, जसमा इकोनोमिक पावर, कुटनीति, पावर प्रोजेक्शन र पोलिटिकल पावर पर्छन् । तर, दोस्रो विश्वयुद्द पहिला राष्ट्रिय सुरक्षा भन्नेबितिकै कुनै पनि देशको सैन्य क्षमता भन्ने गरिन्थ्यो । विकशित देशहरुले जतिसक्यो धेरै आफ्नो सैन्य क्षमतालाई विस्तार गर्दै अन्य राष्ट्रहरुमाथि युद्दको धावा गर्ने गर्दथे । हाल आयर विश्व सैन्य क्षमतामा मात्र निर्भर छैन, उसले आफ्नो गुप्तचरी संजाल र मुलत: इकोनोमिक पावर, कुटनीति, पावर प्रोजेक्शन, पोलिटिकल पावर एकै साथ चुस्त राख्दछ ।

राष्ट्रिय सुरक्षा परिषद् र नेपाली सेना

n1

नेपालमा बेला बखत नेपालको राष्ट्रिय सुरक्षा नीति र राष्ट्रिय सुरक्षा परिषद्को बारेमा अखबारहरुमा आक्कल झुक्कल लेखहरु र केही सीमित बुद्धिजीवीहरुबीच बहस हुने गरेको देखिन्छ । एउटा राष्ट्रिय सुरक्षा नीति समेत नभएको हाम्रो देशमा केही महिना  पहिले नेपाली सेनाले औपचारकि रुपमा नेपाल सरकारसँग राष्ट्रिय सुरक्षा परिषद्सम्बन्धी चासो राखेको खबर आयो । जुन कुराले, ढिलै भए पनि नेपाली सेनाले नेपाल सरकारको ध्यान राष्ट्रिय सुरक्षा परिषद्सम्बन्धी तानेको छ । नाम चलेका अखबारमा राष्ट्रिय सुरक्षा परिषद्सम्बन्धी केही लेख लेख्ने अनि देशको सुरक्षाको बारेमा धेरै टीकाटिपणी गर्ने बुद्धिजीवीहरु अखबारमा आफ्नो लेख आइसकेपछि कहाँ जान्छन् कोसँग बहस गर्छन् त्यो थाहा हुँदैन । त्यतिमा नै उनीहरुले आफ्नो देश प्रतिको दायित्व पूरा भएको ठान्छन् तर वर्षको एक चोटी भने लेख्ने गर्छन् नेपालको सुरक्षा कमजोर भो यस्तो हुनु भएन भनेर । अब यहाँनिर प्रश्न उठ्छ, के देशको सुरक्षा सेवा बर्दिधारी सेना र प्रहरीको मात्र हो त ? के हामी नागरकि पनि त्यो देशको बर्दी बिनाको सेना र प्रहरी होइन र ?
