Nepal church threatened by extremist Hindu group
Kathmandu: A Catholic church in Nepal says it has received threatening phone calls from a person claiming to belong to an underground Hindu group that bombed the church three years ago.
Robin Giri of Assumption Church in the southern suburbs of Kathmandu said today that the caller last week threatened to bomb the church if they did not give the group money. The caller didn`t specify the amount and said he would call back later.
Three people were killed when the church was bombed in May 2009 during prayers. It was the first such attack on a church in Nepal, where most of the population is Hindu and Christians are a small minority.
The Nepal Defense Army claimed responsibility for the attack. It wants Nepal to be declared a Hindu state.
