Apart fro political instabilty, Nepal is suffering from another devil, that is religious convertion. These convertions are done by by creating hatred to their original relgion either by brain washing, propaganda, money etc. Even after convertions those people are treated at par with their counterparts in other countries. Nepal govt should ban with immediate effect UNLAWFULL religious convertion. The hue and cry against ban on cow slaughtering is bcoz of religious convertions which has made minority community growing exponetially which should be at any cost stoped! I hope Himalayan Times has dareness to publish this comment! Vijay, UAE

This is absurd. It has no place in present day Nepal. It may be against some religion, but the ban cannot be imposed on people following other religions. Cows just like buffaloes or cattle are animals, human discrimination is slowly coming to an end, should we continue discriminating animals too? deshman, kathmandu
