NEPAL 2017

The International Panel of Parliamentarians for Freedom Religion of Religion conducted a fact finding and solidarity mission to Nepal, 9 – 12 October 2017. After the mission to Myanmar in 2016, this was the second country visit by a small IPPFoRB delegation.

The visit, organized in collaboration with the newly established IPPFoRB Chapter Nepal, served a double scope: to learn more about the political and parliamentary reality in Nepal and how it affects freedom of religion or belief, and to support the Nepali IPPFoRB Chapter as the only political force standing out against the recent provisions in the new constitution and legislation that criminalizes religious conversion and the “hurting of religious sentiment”.
