Burial Rights Dispute

A week after a Nepali Christian fraternity demanded burial rights and threatened to agitate, a non-Christian ethnic group on Monday demanded burial rights followed by a strong protest in Kathmandu.

Kiratis have become the latest victim of the government directive denying burials of Christians and Kiratis near the Pashupatinath temple where many of their ancestors and family members are interred.. The Nepali government has failed to provide them alternative burial sites.
