BY DIRGHA RAJ PRASAI : There is no uniformity on who are communists and how did they come up in different countries around the world. In Russia, the communists came up because of poverty and not of nationalism. In China, there was rise of communism because of poverty as well as threat to nationalism. In Nepal, the rise of communists is not due to poverty but because of nationalism. When the communists stood up against India in 1951 AD., the communist party was banned and the ban was lifted five years later by King Mahendra. But the Nepalese communists that used to oppose and criticize India have become servile to India and have become their agents. The tug-of-war on dogmatism among international communists and due to useless conflict and the in-fighting the source of Nepalese nationalism has become weak. In additional, Nepalese communists are confused. Some are in parliamentary politics, some support communist dictatorship and some think being communist means they can kill, resort to violence and loot and seize other’s property.
A study of the history of communism and communists tells us that they are still obsessed with murder, violence and revenge. But there is no situation now for the communists to cast their influence and impression by violence, intimidation and destruction. A political museum near Phnom Penh in Cambodia contains human skills and the inscription says 3,314,768 people were killed by the Khmer Rouge of Pol Pot from April 1975 to January 1979 in the name of strengthening the communists. Similarly, more than a million were killed in Russia in two yeas from 1918 to 1920 to create a classless society. In addition, 3.5 million more were killed by the communists led by Stalin from 1934-1939 in former Soviet Union in the name of communization of property.
Not only that, even those no matter how much they had contributed in establishing communist regime were killed if they differ with Stalin. Stalin died when the rampage of killing and terror was at its peak in 1953. After Stalin Khrushchev came to power and he exhumed the body of Stalin and was dragged across the street to portray Stalin as traitor of Soviet Union. In the same way, million of Chinese were killed from 1949 to 1965 in the name of consolidating communism and communist rule in China. Now, China has reformed the communist ideology and its regime and is trying to take human freedom and discipline together. It is also getting international recognition for this.
Nepal is a country sandwiched between China and India. Because of its geo-political situation Nepal’s sovereignty has always been very sensitive. Nepal has no threat from China in the north as it has always remained in favor of Nepal’s sovereignty and independence. China does not support any kind of outside interference in Nepal. But Nepal has always been in awe from India’s interference and plots. Like diplomat Keshar Bahadur KC and The Congress leader BP’s son Prakash Koirala says if it was not for China, Nepal would have lost its independence. For Nepal, its successful foreign policy is to maintain a balance between China and India. But the Indian side never thinks this way. The fundamental of Nepalese unity is monarchy, being a Hindu Kingdom and Nepali as its national language. The Kings of Nepal and Nepalese nationalists have not allowed it to be disrupted. Now, it is time for the nationalist and progressive forces should come together to save this country from corruption and foreign interference. They should come up with plans and programmers that would improve the economic and social conditions of the regions and the people that are poor and undeveloped.
Four years ago, Maoist Chairman Prachanda said that there should be a new kind of unity between the Maoist and the nationalists who support monarchy. He also said there are nationalists around the king who love this country very much. May be power brokers on behalf of foreigners and those who are for foreign intervention opposes this idea but this is a welcome and positive statement from the Maoist leader. This is a way to safe land this country from Indian intervention and clutches. This, however, is possible only in an arrangement in which the king and the political parties work together. But, Maoists are not clear in their thinking. It is now all the more clear that this country cannot protect its sovereignty without monarchy. Now, when the King has been totally misused and ignored the Terai witnessed such a spate of violence and anarchy that had never happened before, can this country remain one if there is no king?
What the Communists should understand is that had the Ranas, during their 104-year-long rule not maintained monarchy even if in the form of a figurehead the existence of Nepal would have finished. But Krishna Sitoula ( the most culprit & nonsense person, devote of Girija Prasad-leader of Nepali Congress), who has been accused by his own Nepali Congress party as a RAW agent, and the traitor, opposes that monarchists can never become nationalists. Our question to the traitor- Sitoula and other hangers-on like him is, are only those who are agents of RAW nationalists? In Nepal, monarchy and Royal institution is taken as a reserve and protective force and the present situation of total chaos, disorder and anarchy can only be brought to an end if the communists and the nationalist of all party accept monarchy and, Hindu Kingdom and ethnic diversity under the umbrella of Nepali language and join hands with the monarch and the monarchists.
