Human rights leader, Tek Nath Rizal, has launched his personal website in an attempt to make the world community aware about mind control and torture practices in Bhutan.
Friends of Bhutan Cordinator, Dhruva Joshi, set the site online amidst a program organized jointly by Nepal FM Network and Bhutan Media Society on Wednesday.
“I am optimistic that the site will give access to all my documents so that they get opportunity to understand on mind control and torture practices in Bhutan,” Rizal said while addressing the program. Currently readers can download the electronic version of Torture Killing Me Softly from his personal website, www.teknathrizal.com. Other books will be gradually made available in the web for readers around the globe, he added.
Deepak Adhikari, a Nepali journalist who has been reporting the issue of exiled Bhutanese since its beginning, presented his experience of editing the Torture Killing Me Softly in its second edition.
Addressing the program, Joshi expressed his continuous commitment for the Bhutanese refugee issue. “The Friends of Bhutan is always ready to demonstrate in any forms to make the dreams of exiled Bhutanese come true,” Joshi said.
According to Joshi, the little contribution his group had made in publishing the book would attain its goal when readers around the globe read free copies of Rizal’s books.
Meanwhile, historian Dr. Surendra KC blamed the Government of Nepal and Nepali citizens of failing to resolve the long-standing issue.
“The Nepalis, who have been regarded as brave and masterminds in various historic events during the past, have failed to repatriate our fellow Bhutanese to their hometowns,” KC said.
