NHRC appeals to maintain social harmony

KATHMANDU: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has urged one and all to remain alert to the possibility of occurrence of any activities capable of provoking communal unrest and disrupting peace and order within the community.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the NHRC has called for respecting the dignity and rights of others while practicing the right to freedom of expression and opinion. It has insisted on the responsible use of social sites.

The national rights body has further demanded an impartial investigation into a recent clash in Nepalgunj sub-metropolis and action against those found responsible for the incident.

The rights watchdog has said that it has already conducted a field inspection in regard to the incident that occurred in Nepalgunj which left 22 people injured.

It may be noted that the Banke District Administration Office issued a curfew order for an indefinite period in the city from 1 pm Tuesday following religious unrest that reportedly originated from a status posted on social media targeting the Muslim community.
