Normal life across Morang and Sunsari district came to a grinding halt on Sunday following a strike called in protest of the bomb explosions at a mosque at Sarauchiya in Biratnagar sub-metropolis on Saturday night. Two persons were killed and two other injured when three bombs went off almost simultaneously at a mosque in Biratnagar last night. Educational institutions, industries and marketplaces remained shut and vehicles stayed off the road due to the shutdown called by Morang Business Association. The Morang District Administration lifted the curfew clamped in Biratnagar. The district administration had issued curfew orders from 9 last night till 8 this morning in the areas surrounding the mosque to take situation under control in the aftermath of the incident.
Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala Sunday expressed sadness over Saturday’s multiple blasts at Choti Mosque in Biratnagar that left two people killed and two others severely injured. PM Koirala condemned the blasts and requested the Muslim community not to be deterred by the attack. A radical Hindu outfit claiming to be fighting for a Hindu stae has claimed the responsibility. Claiming that the regressive elements had carried out these activities taking advantage of the dispute among the seven ruling parties, the octogenarian Prime Minister said that the objectives with which these regressive elements carried out the blats will not be fulfilled.

i heard about cows being slaughtered in biratnagar when i was 19, i was very heart. i would like to ask prime minister koirala how he felt on the issue?
sorry that is ” hurt”
Don’t know about GPK, but I felt the same way as buffalloes being slaughtered in Kathmandu!!
Hardly any muslim likes a person of any other religion in fact they hate every other person who is not a muslim. They kill innocent people and claim they deserve to be killed. Countries like Saudi Arabia invites muslim leader from NEpal and gives him money and financial support to preach and distribute Koran and convert people to ISLAM, the best religion in the world.
Like thousand of HIndu Nepali workers in Saudi Arabia, Mr. Girija also needs to realize that, the moment he lands in Saudi Arabia, he also will be spit upon by the religious police becasue he is a Hindu. Any pictures of Ram/Krishna/Jesus/Buddha that you carry will be thrown into the garbage right before your eyes.
I am sorry but I am not so forgiving to these people that do not hesitate to kill us for a few virgins in heaven.
Mr. GPK is wrong, these regressive elements also have a point, one attacks when threatened. Muslims and secularism is a threat to Hindus and Buddhists who do not easily resort to Violence. This need not be a royalist propaganda, but rather a first attempt to help survive the jihad that muslims are running all around the world. There is more to come, an impending civil war in Nepal is inevitable.
MAOISTS DO NOT BELIEVE IN DEMOCRACY. THEY WILL PICK UP ARMS AFTER THE ELECTION BECASUE THEY WILL LOSE. THE LOSS WILL BE BLAMED ON ROYALISTS GURANTEED. THEN COMES IN THE ARMY….AND THE WAR BEGINS.
It is not strange to think gods left Nepal and muslims will be it.
This is what your average hindu intellectual believes like tibetian talk samsara, hindu talk gods left.
And how they like money.
Muslims it is true are always at risk because a few of their fellow believers are too violent but making them more isolated will make them more crazy ant then you really make the path free for JIHAD. All these solidarities are complex, who these days can express love for Israel? Yet we hate muslims and we do not know any thing about them. They are clean and law abiding, they believe and are hard working if you let them. Religious intolerance is the main problem these days. Best to pray in your cave and not read newspapers. good morning.
Full credit must ber given to the muslims of Nepal for not starting a Hindu-Muslim riot. I salute the muslims of Biratnagar.
Nepal has always been known for its “Dharmik Sahisnuta” and Nepalese are proud of it. Religion should be for the betterment of human kind; not for its destruction. All the religions have same kind of respect in the hearts of it’s followers. I wonder when people are going to understand this simple truth and stop claiming that their religion is superior to others.
dude, beef gets alughtered every week in dharan n r sold commercially in the market, why fuss about it its the right of the citizen to consume the most healthy red meat as proved by the scientists. bear in mind nepal is country of multi cultural, multi ethnicity who has thier own beleifs n values. u cant force ur culture n value to be implemented in that whole mass of other differences….
the one u r ranting n the intended bombing of mosque right at the prayer time to cause sum casualties by sum radical hindu n royal fanatics r way out of relevancy. b realistic dude…
It is interesting to see some Nepali arguing like Isrealise. Cool Han. The point is u have not understood Islam faith at all. It is more than what u think and have seen. So first try to understand it. My2 cents.
Those who threw the bomb to praying Muslim Nepali brothers,they are enemy of Nepal.They should be searched and catched immediately by Government.
my friend kirat, rights and responsibilities go together, let me give you an example, if a tibetan refugee escapes tibet and comes to nepal i don’t think any one will cross question him, it is so because tibetans are compatible in a sense that if they get the right they take the responsibilities, they can lead a peaceful life in nepal, but if the same tibetan goes in front of the chinese embassy and protests he will be taken away or put out. You see slaughtering of cows is not a issue to me it is just a metaphor, if some so called extremist hindu attacks a mosque to perpetuate violence in my country , i think we must take away the cause, and the cause is miscommunication and distrust between the hindu and muslim communities in these areas of poverty , illetracy and illness. Muslim population has been a part of nepal for almost 300 years, and i suppose they have been eating beef eversince. so cow is not the issue here, issue here is how are we going to protect our people both hindu and muslim from these attacks. it is very unlikely, in the midst of global jihad waged by muslims and our part of the world being center for warfare, to assume 80% of hindus in nepal will sympathise for few muslims who are eating cow(metaphor) because their very survival is at stake at this hour.
“to assume 80% of hindus in nepal will sympathise for few muslims who are eating cow(metaphor) because their very survival is at stake at this hour” – Well I think, if that 80% can think rationally, then I think they will sympathize with these Muslims. Cause as you said “Muslim population has been a part of nepal for almost 300 years” ; that makes them Nepali first. And a Nepali will always sympathize with another Nepali. These Muslims are not someone that came from India few decades or a few years ago. And these Muslims have live peacefully in Nepal for a long time. I think what was done to their religious place was wrong and I think everyone should sympathize with them.
nobody knows anything about muslims and yet this unfamiliarity causes many violent casualties.
Spain had a huge train blast, Netherlands is now boycotted in Maleisia already because Geert Wilders a new fascist parlementarian likes to win the elections by making anti muslim movies, like there are no muslim countries in the world that can and will retaliate.
Bin Laden went to live in Pakistan, Pakistan blew up my hero Benazir Bhutto. I cannot defend Musharraf or any muslim anymore but not a good idea to antagonize them. Now enlightened parlementarians say we need to live and work together and we depend on the solidarity of the good muslims.
The fanatic hindu or buddhist should think before they mindlessly destroy their own future. They don’t eat pork muslims. Chhetris also eat meat. Tibetans eat meat. Atheists dowhat they like. There are many good reasons to stop eating meat, one is don’t kill.
Nepalese MUSLIMS are not involved in any sort of violence.
In fact they exercised restraint in the latest incident and also
when the Kathmandu MOSQUE was vandalized following IRAQUE
case. So lets not fuel communal violence. It will benifit to those who have vested interest. Hindu muslim unity in Nepal is example
to the world and lets try to preserve it.
freedom writer, fact- nepali muslim community which is 300 years old is based in kathmandu,they do not send their kids to madrasas, and since it was illegal to kill cow back then, specially in the valley they did not eat cow. The muslims diaspora in terai islargely based on migration in the last 20 to 30 years.
Now i agree that bombing a mosque is wrong but i don’t want an incident to turn into a full fledged jihad ok, and it can believe me, it can easily turn into it, and it will mean prime minister koirala will have his way again by fooling people like us. so next time if you see a muslim says hai hai hindu , dont sympathise with him, talk to him. ok.
I am sure that the nepali muslim community which is 300 years old is based not only in kathmandu, but outside of the valley as well. Why, the “Churate”, one of th ethnic groups of Nepal (who are muslims by religion) has been residing in different parts of Nepal for a long long time. There may be new migrants in terai region, but there are old residents too. So we cannot discriminate the muslims of terai, for the sole region that there are immigrants mixed with the old ones. Anyways, as someone mentioned earlier, muslim community of Nepal has been patient and tolerant, so i think we should try to understand them, try to be tolerant ourself and stop any kind of racial roit.
I am not surprised by bomb blast but i did not know that there is a MULLA in nepal

With the majority of Sanatan Dharmaalawi; Nepal is a secular state framed by the transition government so people do have disagreement with this.
However the minorities cannot be discriminated in this ground. There are many minorities or ethinc minorities who do not wish to fall upon the backdrop of a unified Nepali but are wishing to incite nationalism by identifying as i.e. Newa Nepali, Limbuwan Nepali, Kirati Nepali, Gurung Nepali, Magar nepali, Sherpa Nepali, Thakali Nepali, Madheshi Nepali, Pahadi Nepali, Thakuri Nepali, Chhetri Nepali, Brahman Nepali, Tamang nepali, Dalit Nepali. (Only dalit nepalis are genuinely been discriminated by all groups till this day)
Who are who protesting from?
Can we identify a single majority from these groups.
A Nepali could have Indo Aryan features, Mongolian, Dravidian features
Now comes faith and religion.
It was a prepostorous act by the people involved in the bombings of mosques.
Shall we not rationalise this by calling Muslims are Jihadist or in some Arabian states and pakistan and other places multi faiths dont co exist.
Very interesting comments about beef but arent we diverting from the mosque bombings report.
Secularism will offend the majority religion. But it caters for the minority. A compromise brought about will generate a consensus.
Lets wait and observe what happens after the CA elections; positive i presume.

I am no Hindu Nationalist or nationalist of any kind but I love mind mushies get the taste of their own medicine.
My name is Nouman and i am a MUSLIM. first of all i would like to tell u that Islam is a religion who believe in peace not in violence bcoz of some bastard who tell that he is Muslim he do violence that Islam never teach violence. Islam is all about peace and care it is spread on love. some people have mis concept about Islam that is depend on the person. if u targeting anyone then i think u must have to have knowledge about that religion. Have u ever heard that any politician have died in communal riots whether Muslim or Hindu no na??? yes politician makes riots to make their vote. u see SALMAN KHAN, AAMIR KHAN, SHAHRUKH KHAN, SAIF ALI KHAN they all are Muslim even though they goes to temple or church even i go. it is depend on u how u believe in god. Now peoples are educated them self and they have sense to find out true or false.
being a NEPALI we should think about our country not for caste. we used to live happily no matter who belongs to which religion it is all happened in NEPAL bcoz of cheap politician. if we all give our concentration on our motherland then NEPAL can be a best country.
correct me if i am wrong. we all have same blood same culture same face, we eat same thing then where is the problem? if we have a garden and we have only one flower then our garden will not looks good but if we have all kinds of flowers then it gives something different joy isn’t it?
i m in saudi arabia, today when i read this i was shocked, what is going on in my country. i m saying here to saudis that we have muslim brothers live together with love, care. how can i show my face. If somebody talking about religion i want to say that only islam is best even i m hindu i like to be muslim. because, they not drink, no pork, no lady, no playing card, no interest . i hope be muslim soon.
Muslims are a problem in Nepal. but they are only a part of larger problem. Indians are coming into nepal and destroy country. muslims are part of that group.
This message is for all who hate islam and want to divide nepalse.
