US Democracy in South Asia
Long live American freedom. Long live American democracy.
United States Of America is the most democratic nation on respecting human rights and such as freedom. Thank you for America's interest in Tibetan and Bhutanese refugees in Nepal. It shows America has a great heart. Nepali nationalist and the patriotic people who believe in a real democracy, press freedom, and human rights are happy about it. Even the strong democratic and human rights values of patriotic citizens of Nepal, fully support a secular Nepal. Religious freedom is a real democracy and a wonderful freedom. I think fundamental rights to religious freedom, human rights and sovereignty is very important in our life.
But I don't understand why leftists group do not support and respect religious freedom and human rights? When leftists give an anti American, anti Tibetan, anti Bhutanese, anti religious speech, it gives me pain and it hurts me emotionally. Why leftists never respect religious freedom? As a pure democrat at heart, I wanted to tell to the American people is a good elected, responsible government will give rights to the people. Why people, especially Nepali people are suffering badly?. Our great neighbores are on the way to economic prosperity but look at the Nepali people are crying for freedom, justice, democracy and human rights. As America should know, radical groups can take situations like that one as a gap for themselves. Do America remember the same happened in Cambodia after the installed a weak leaders. That turmoil was the chance for Pol Pot to start his horror regime and to find members who were simply disappointed by the political and economical circumstances.
American has to remember, in Germany after World War 1 when the country was destroyed and none had any hope for the future. Then people elected a man who promised them a better future and it was Adolf Hitler. The rest is known. I am convinced that like the Khmer Rouge, Adolf Hitler or the leftists would have no chance if a society is solid. I wanted to American people, violent group have killed people from a one year old baby to 90 years old men. They murdered a whole village:a journalist, children and women.
Democracy and freedom and human rights are very hard to establish and even harder to hold onto. Leftists always hate democracies and refugees. They're messy to deal with. the best solutions are always in hands of the people. All those in need should get help and to respect the rights of all the people,. In a real democracy the people have a real say and get great social and political benefits.
When the failed leaders cannot agree on ABCs. Trust and working relationship between the people and the failed political leaders will be at a low point. It is up to the people to define the framework within which to seek assistance. And leftists have a track record of converting aspiration to reality. I am a bit surprised to read daily news that if the leaders still don't seem to know what is urgent and priority. What I am pointing out about democratic and patriotic unity is also equally important issues to defend freedom. The trouble of modern era is based on differences, and people are suffering for no valid reasons and I think the very foundation of this problem underlies in lack of good leadership and we need a revolution to sure that good leaders is uncorrupted from the politics, every people deserve quality leaders.
The US has always supported the cause of democracy and human rights in South Asia, and particularly in Nepal, Srilanka, Bhutan, and Afghanistan. India is already an well established nation of more than a billion people, where democracy has taken deep roots with more than six decades of democratic exercises. Pakistan is a different story altogether. Pakistan and Bangladesh are now Republics. Bhutan is a Buddhist nation, similarly Srilanka is a Buddhist nation. The United States presence in South Asia has increased dramatically with the war in Afghanistan.
Today, the United States is committed to fighting terrorism around the world. It is in the best interest of all of mankind to safeguard the freedoms and rights of the people.
In the early eighties there were not too many people from Nepal, and the South Asian presence in the United States was mostly that of Indians and people from Pakistan. There were very few people from Bangladesh, and some from Nepal, Srilanka and almost none from Bhutan or Maldives. Today all that has changed, the South Asian presence in the United States has undergone a dramatic change, with immigrations, business , and students pursuing higher education in the many colleges and universities in the US. The United States of America is a nation of immigrants. This openness to accept all people from around the world is the beauty and strength of America. This humanitarian approach to life, liberty and the pursuit if happiness is the bedrock of the US nation.
I also would like to thank the US Ambassador in Nepal, Mr. James Moriarty of having done a wonderful job in Nepal. He has been critical of the Maoists and have asked them to renounce violence, and change their ways, by joining the political mainstream. The United States is carefully watching the developments and changes taking place in Nepal. The Maoists will have to completely surrender their arms, renounce violence and seek forgiveness and amnesty from the people of Nepal.
The US, China and India have repeatedly condemned the violence, killings, extortion, abductions, terror tactics and outright human rights violations and criminal activities of the Maoists.
A patriotic Panday said" I request all Nepali people to be united, defend our pride, our heritage, continue with the good works that our fore fathers, have taught us. Let us all join hands and seek their blessings to help build a beautiful Nepal where the people can live without fear, with peace and security, trust and where the rule of law prevails. Let us put an end to all violence. This is the responsibility of the Nepali people.
Long live American freedom. Long live American democracy.
