Gyanendra, Challenging the Peoples' Verdict, Visits Kumari Ghar

Prime Minister and acting head of state Girija Prasad Koirala quizzes the palace officials as to why Gyanendra, the suspended king, went to observe Kumari, the living Goddess, without government permission.

As the country is increasingly unsure about the fate of elections that are scheduled for 22 November because of the Maoist behavior, suspended king and former autocrat Gyanendra yesterday evening went to observe Kumari, the living Goddess, like a thief, without government permission. With the mandate of the April Revolution of 2006, the government has been curtailing the political and cultural rights and role of the king. The prime minister, in capacity as the acting head of state, has been performing the duties of the head of the state.

[Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala has ordered chief of the Nepali Army (NA) Rookmangud Katawal to pull out half of the NA personnel at Narayanhiti royal palace. detail here]

Following PM Koirala’s return after receiving blessings from Kumari in the capacity of head of state yesterday, the last day of Indra Jatra festival, King Gyanendra walked into the crowd at Basantapur and received tika from Shree Kumari, Shree Ganesh and Shree Bhairav. Gyanendra had reached Kumari Ghar at around 9:30 last night.

Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala today quizzed the palace officials as to why King Gyanendra went to observe Kumari, the living Goddess, without government permission. According to media reports, PM Koirala rang palace principal secretary Pashupati Bhakta Maharjan this morning and asked about yesterday’s incident. PM Koirala has discussed the issue with Chief of the Army Staff Rukmangat Katuwal. It was reported that soldiers in plainclothes were mobilized to provide security to the suspended monarch. A spokesman of Nepali Army expressed his ignorance about such mobilization.

PM Koirala talked about the details during his meeting with former district presidents of the Nepali Congress who are dissatisfied over the Congress unification. “If the king is trying to challenge by walking into Kumari Ghar without government permission then I will also do the same (challenge),” Former Nepali Congress Sankhuwasabha district president Tara Man Gurung quoted PM Koirala as saying.

This visit has been interpreted by many as Gyanendra’s attempt to play games in muddy water while the country is trying to institutionalize the democratic achievements by exploiting the confusing situation created by the Maoists anti-election stand and their withdrawal from the government recently. Some also feel that the Maoists are deliberately trying to provide playing field to Gyanendra by walking away from elections.

    It was his right to go and get the blessing of tika. Why you are trying to make big deal out of everything instead of focusing on your best friend Maoist terrorists and corrupt Girija who is trying to be new king. I live in this basantapur area and going by the genral mood of the people it was clear that they wher hostile to idea of bahun trying to become new king. Most of the newsar think that this bahun is trying to play the game here. IF country is going to be secular and republic we do not need anybody trying to be king. Everybody is welcome as common man but not as King anymore. If bahun and some stupid Newar is trying to conspire againts our culture then the result will be very bad. As oppressed people we had enough of trampling upon our custom and heritage by everyone. Leave us alone or if we rise to revolution there will be no naya Nepal.

    Where is so called “FREEDOM OF PERSONAL CHOICE”?? Can’t Mr. Gyanendra visit the goddess in which he has faith??? why that bahun is doing all religious works in this secular country? what will happen to kumari if some christian or muslim person is elected prime minister??

    is giriga so afraid that “all power stripped” king will take away the power which gang of 8 has been practicing in the name of people but without any people mandate

    I think KING and HEAD OF THE STATE are two different phenomenon in Nepal, GPK visited Kumari in his capacity as Head of the State where as Gynendra went as King. Before abdication Gyanendra still is a King no matter whatever names you may put on. I guess writer has too much venom against the monarch so he sees conspiracies in every step. I don’t see any relevance of the Monarchy in Nepal anymore,however ,I condemn the efforts of some people with vested interest to drag a highly sensitive and sacred institution of Kumari into controversy. The visit itself should not spark that much fire as the temple of Kumari welcomesanybody to everybody without any prejudice , so the news must not be hyped !!

    Gyanendra shouldn’t have visited the temple because his visit has politicized the matter. If he wants to visit the temple, he should first abdicate the thorn and become the general citizen. If he becomes general citizen, then the constitution guarantees his rights to visit anywhere he likes to visit. But for king Gyanendra, there are certain restrictions right now because he has been suspended from the kingship and he can’t do anything without the prior approval of the government. Gyanendra should ask for government approval for each and every action he intends to perform.

    Just wonder why should the King ask anybody’s permission to visit anywhere in the country? Who gave the mandate to Mr Koirala to be head of state? After all he and the whole parliament was not elected.

    The parliament was dissolved legally by Mr Deuba and was reinstalled by the King by his power as head of state. Whatever decisions the present “parliament” has taken are all illegal and will eventually challenged in the court.. and will be found to be illegal ..just wait and see.

    When our country has politically motivated so called journalists, nothing good is coming out from our country and on top of that he works for Kantipur!! Now anyone can guess what he might be up to. Going through his recent articles in this blog, I seriously question about his journalism ethics. The only reason I believe he’s running this blog is to spread the propaganda for whoever he’s working for. The reason I believe why our country is in the brink of extinction is the fact that we want everything good just for ourselves. We don’t have patience, we want to be millionaires overnight (without work, yes!!!), we want our country to be Switzerland (without playing any part of our own, of course!!), we want our universities to have standards like Harvard and Stanford Universities. Well, guess what…………….it aint gonna happen overnight ok! Let’s start doing our part and in the long run maybe……….yes, maybe we’ll reach there. What we are doing now is pointing fingers towards others for ourselves to be safe!! Americans had completed Empire state building in 1931………….remember what our country was and the knowledge base at that time. It takes time. I know I don’t have any writing skills but this chump who keeps posting biased and politically motivated blog news makes me wanna write anyways! I think we should coordinate a peaceful gathering of all the Nepalese in the country to show these power hungry 8party alliance bastards what we actually need. Right now, Prachanda thinks he can achieve anything and the 7 party thinks they can give away anything for him. We Nepalese are above the 8 party and they don’t represent me.

    P.S. The king might have lost his powers but he still has his rights. The rights of a commoner.

    Jai Nepal. Peace.

    You don’t have to wonder. It’s crystal clear as it is that Gyanendra needs permission because be is the king. If he says, okay, I am not the king, I abdicate and become a common Nepali citizen, THEN he has the right to go wherever he wants to go. I would happily welcome if he abdicates and stops eating our tax like a pig. After that, I don’t care wherever go goes and licks whoever’s ass.

    Media has said Gyanendra went as a commoner so what’s the big deal. Time to get your head out of the black hole and focus on getting rid of the maoists.
    Besides, the Newari community are not very pleased with GPK stepping in for the King. So he must have gone on their request. Many Nepalis are superstitious and if it takes the King to visit the Kumari to comfort that portion of the population then it was the correct thing to do. Remember many who write here may have drank too much western wine and don’t believe in all this but many in the valley do.

    I don’t know on whose behalf does the bogus owner of this blog speaks. Even all the internet and real world polls are in support of King Gyanendra and the Monarchy heavily.

    In the meantime, why are the democracy spreading warlords shying away from the elections whereas all the royalist aka authoritarian parties have registered for the elections? It shows that the warlords are actually the authoritarian hegemonists.

    Following from telegrahnepal…link available on my name.

    To recall, Nepal’s presumed “unpopular monarch”, King Gyanendra on the last day of “Indra Jatra Festival(Yesterday) providing continuity to the age old tradition had arrived in the Bashantapur Durbar premises to receive blessings from living goddess Kumari.

    The King had arrived there at around 9:30 PM last night. His arrival there coincided with the departure of the acting head of the state, Girija Babu, who was greeted with slogans like “Down with Brahmanism”.
    On the other hand, King Gyanendra was received amid a huge round of applause and the locals chanting pro-monarchy slogans.2007-10-01 19:28:41

    Nepal has not gotten rid of monarchy yet. King Gyanendra lives in the palace and two army battalions are there to protect Him. So He has every right to visit and receive blessings from living goddess Kumari.

    Hello royalist psychopaths,

    We are not against any visit of Gyanendra in his personal capacity. But to enjoy that right, he must first show the huti, if he has drank the mother’s milk, to leave the Narayanhitti palace, abdicate and stop eating our tax money. If he does that, as someone has stated above, we don’t care if he goes to a temple or a brothel.

    Living Goddnes is jewel of Nepal, all Nepalese and non Nepalese are welcome to pay their respect. Those who believe that the Gynandra crossed the lines are fools. You don’t know Nepal or the world. You fools, you want Giraja or Prachanda to dictate and change the religious traditions of Nepal. Look, the King Gyanandra is human being, and he is a Nepali citizen, and he should be at least applauded for his reverence for the living goddess and Nepalese traditions. The land of peace and Buddha is filled with hard nose bigots who have already destroyed the country and economy with corruptions and nypotism, and now they want to destroy the traditons and religions as well. These corrupt bigots bring the whole temple down, but only one brick at a time, so watch out, and wake up…

To those who seek novelty in killing of a nation by being what we are not, being that we are not (no matter how hard they try to copycat their masters) and acting which we can never be shall feel the wrath of people who have given them benefit of doubt till now but no more.

    The rukus of few who view King’s personal visit to Kumari as an challenge- so be it. Days are numbered for people who think they know better or are better than the rest just because they are born to certain caste or kissing ass of agent of destruction surely knows the end is very near. Only thing we who believe in Nepal should be aware is we should not let them destroy our heritage, culture and tradition for the sake of their over-zealously self- serving interest by destroying very notion of Nepal for Nepali.

    ”If GPK wants to display his manliness he should show the courage to stand up to abominable Maoist excesses that need urgent attention, not roar at a docile and benevolent king who ostensibly in his eyes committed an unpardonable “sin” by daring to offer his prayers to the living goddess at Basantapur Durbar. Even the authoritarian regimes in China and Myanmar don’t go this far. It totally beggars belief. Most of us are God-fearing and we routinely visit temples/Mosques every so often in Nepal. Why should the king be barred from worshiping Gods and Goddesses? Is that the biggest sin that the king can commit? Why do we have such a low tolerance threshold for the king while we are willing to put up with horrible atrocities from both the political parties and Maoists without batting an eyelid? ”

Next, we were united at monarchy no matter what races we are from, what parties we r from, what religion we r from,… everything attacked and broken down. now at least we unite at one point- Nepal.

    King Gyanendra is, in my view, the most passioned king ever, and the real living martyr of Nepal. He didn’t OKed to bow down before foreign powers!! But Oked to bow down before his own ppl !! He really loves Nepal and Nepalese. Please believe.

    What The Heck

    I dont think its right to call Gyan Dai our enemy. He took the country in his powers when people felt hopeless. Remember no one came to street the day he took power. He made some miscalculation which is far forgiving than those made by politicians. But to call him desh drohi and make him a second class citizen and to put him under quasi house arrest is wrong. Look at Girja, he is in poor health when important issues props up and is fit to substitute Kings religious role.

    I personally feel that if reconciliatory jesture is to be conducted it should be conducted with all the parties be it left wing, right wing or the King. However I have lot of reservation for the Maoist and their tactical approach for democracy. Why are leaders blinds when we least of the people invovled in politics can clearly spell out their evel mind. Dont they know if you play with the fire you’ll get burnt. If you dance with the devil, devil will dance you. Please recap all the one liner maoist have been sending and recanting the same statements.
    1. We have not kept all the weapons in the cantonment
    2 Peace talk is strategic and tactical issue.
    3. We have 36000 PLA and 500,000 YCL enough to take over the country
    4. We wont go to election but take Government by force (or Janta Ko Akrosh)
    5. Ill be president within two years (Prachanda)

    It doest not take Da Vinci’s method to decihpher the message. The message is loud and care, we were in peace talk as a strategic ploy to be in the city as nothing was happening the villages. We will bring all the hidden weapon and with the support of PLA and YCL we will distrupt the election and make our Comrade Prachanda our beloved President.

    This is a chilling reality and they have reached 75% of the journey. Under such circumstances if the country is to go through the bloodshed, people will look towards King for the show down and pull the country into one piece. If King is gone they will achieve the success rate by 100% and that is the reason they want Ganatantra before election. THe chilling reality of the election for them is they have relealized they have no support of the people and they would by far loose whatever they have gained now. Its a do and die situation for the maoist.

    The best solution is for Political party and King to have a unity and space for each other and let Maoist rot in the Jungle.

    A part of me says that KG should do a military coup on December 1, 2007. It’s a part of myself that I disagree with a lot. KG already did it once and screwed up so terribly. Plus he does not seem to have the competency or the will to manage the mess. Has he learned and changed accordingly? It’s a part of me I would like to disown. But it is a part of me that seeks law and order in this land as opposed to the neverending chaos we presently have.

    If KG decided to do military coup the people will like it in the following conditions:
    1. Press will not be censored
    2. Phone and Internet will not be blocked
    3. Anounces the election of prime minister by general public right away
    4. Cancels the Interim Constitution but ammends the old constitution to make it democratic.

    Right now Girija trying to stay in power until his death by postponing the election. He can always blame on some unseen forces.

    Yes, Gyanendra didnot show any ability, the guy doesn’t have any. Don’t get desperate, it’s too early to go back in the past. The elections will be defferred again for sure and we have new situation. But does that mean, king is the only saviour we have( the same mistake as some people thought Maoists were the only option for Gyanendra’s rule).

    Let’s talk about the possible outcomes and wayouts!!
