From The Nepali Press
Questionable silence, Nepal



EKANTIPUR

Journalists were widely targeted during the recent banda called by the Janjatis. 67 cases of violence against media personnels were reported during the three day period, whereas in the Far West, 89 attacks were carried out in 15 days. This is probably the biggest attack on the Nepali press after April 2006.

Surprisingly, the international community who used to speak out vocally against cases of aggression against the press, has preferred to remain silent. Except for the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) and Reporters San Frontiers, no one has formally condemned the attacks. Chairperson of Freedom Forum Taranath Dahal said, "The donor community would dispatch missions when similar events happened earlier, but they didn't even issue a press release this time." So what should we make of this silence when the Nepali press is being openly attacked?

I'll have to say like this: when the spoil brats are their own sons and daughters, parents often prefer their mouth closed, If not the fingers would be pointed at them! You need a lot of courage to scold them and above all good education to accept that your creatures made mistakes. Not everyone could afford to be good parents.


2. who cares
even i did not condemn by the way. i like it why?

white did not condemn cause they want they pet in power, they do not give a damn about democracy, freedom....

i did not mind cause you people are unreliable, anti nepal, daichure, lacks principle .... 


nepalese only learn by doing/experiencing, so let press as well as nepalese suffer. we need a radical change, tine tiny bit of regular change is not change.
