Difference, whether it be on the basis of race – including caste or ethnicity gender, religion or belief, or other qualities, must never be a justification for denying the inalienable rights of human beings. Racism is insidious, and sadly we see it continue to blight communities in countries all over the world: racial discrimination causes the violation of human rights of millions of people.
The theme for this year’s International Day for the Elimination of Racial
Discrimination is “Fighting Everyday Racism”. Tragically, everyday life for people in Nepal means living in the context of the violence of the long- running armed conflict, and in a situation where many democratic rights are under threat. This affects the human rights of all people in Nepal, but clearly Nepalis whose rights were already vulnerable find themselves even more susceptible to violations. Members of Dalit communities across Nepal, already suffering a denial of fundamental rights under the centuries-old caste system, and members of indigenous nationalities, have suffered further denial of their rights in context of armed conflict.
