Nepal dethrones king, asks him to vacate palace - Will we ever do so? NO??

A constituent assembly in Nepal on Wednesday voted overwhelmingly in favour of abolishing the Himalayan nation’s 240-year-old Hindu monarchy and declaring a republic.

In a historic vote that caps a peace deal between Maoist rebels and mainstream parties, politicians ordered unpopular King Gyanendra to step down and for his palace to be turned into a museum.

“The sacrifice of thousands of Nepalese has been honoured today by us getting rid of the monarchy,” Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist spokesman Krishna Bahadur Mahara told AFP.

“The Nepalese people have been freed from centuries of feudal tradition, and the doors have now opened for a radical social and economic transformation,” he said.

zardari saab seekhein kuch... parliament nay kitni bahaduri se yeh decision liya... despite the following fact:

He (The king) still enjoys some support from Hindu hardliners and powerful elements in the armed forces and ruling elite, who argue the royals, are a crucial symbol of the neutrality of a country wedged between Asian giants India and China.

see if the ppl n their representatives r sincere n united, such support cannot do much... so take a stand, throw this stuborn ruler out of the govt....
The Maoists have told Gyanendra and his son Crown Prince Paras — loathed for his reported playboy lifestyle — to bow out gracefully and adapt to life as a “common citizen” or else face “strong punishment.”

musharraf saab... kuch sochein aap bhi...

on terrorism: the article says:
The United States also continues to list the former rebels as a foreign “terrorist” organisation.

and they have now been proved to be ppl fighting for their rights (or against the monarchy)... so anyone who is called terrorist by US should not be considered a terrorist... lets revise our definiion of a terrorist and war on terror... lets understand what do ppl in tribal areas want? wht does america want from them n us? wht shld we stand against?

‘Hidden forces’ out to throttle democracy: Asif

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari has said that ‘hidden forces’ are out to impose martial law and any movement against the government may snuff out democracy.

Talking to representatives of the Punjab and NWFP chapters of the People’s Lawyers Forum (PLF) here on Wednesday, Mr Zardari said the PPP wanted not only to reinstate the deposed judges but also to introduce constitutional reforms to ensure that all state institutions worked in accordance with their roles defined in the Constitution.
