Muslim group warns of agitation in Nepal
Kathmandu: A Maoist-affiliated Muslim group has issued a four-month ultimatum to the Nepalese government demanding the implementation of their demands, which includes replacing the cow with the rhinoceros as the national animal.
Muslim Liberation Front Nepal (MLFN) yesterday demanded the immediate implementation of a six-point agreement which they had reached with the government last year.
Other demands in the agreement include declaring a three-day holiday for Bakar Id, formation of a Muslim National Commission for the upliftment and development of the community.
The group handed over a renewed 10-point demand to the Prime Minister through Kathmandu district administrative office yesterday.
Convenor of MLFN Harikullah Khan has warned that his group would launch agitation if their demands were not met by March 13.
The group staged a sit-in at the District Administration Office, Banke in western Nepal, before handing over a memorandum to the local administration.
