  1. Reality is different. Please don’t think you can do whatever you like to fool the innocent people. I suggest to APF to detain them for longer period or get in writing from them that they will not repeat such blunder to kill the innocent mass by takin in the mechi bridge. It was Indioan police until now, now you have Nepal police in the camp itself..
    Well done APF

  2. BHUTAN IS A NATION WHO HAS STRONG CULTURE NAD VALUES AND WE THE CITIZENS ARE HAPPY NAD MORE CONFIDENT THAT OUR SOVERIGHNTY WILL NOT BE HARMED.IF IT DOES WE ARE HERE TO SERVE OUR NATION WITH FULL DEDICATION.WE WILL NOT GO BACKWARD INTERMS OF SECURITY MATTERS AND ‘LL FIGHT BACK WITHOUT ANY MERCY AND TILL OUR LAST BREATH…WE LIES IN BETWEEN TWO RISING POWERS (INDIA AND CHINA)BUT WE DIDN’T LOOSE OUR SOVIREIGHNTY SO FAR,WHY SHOULD WE SURRENDER TO A GROUP OF PEOPLE…WE WILL PUT OUR COUNTRY FIRST.BHUTANESE DON’T HARM OTHERS..BUT IF OTHERS DON’T UNDERSTAND WE ARE THE WORST….

  3. Something is better than nothing. Let the resources and the energy utilized be for the good. Whatever commentors expressed is their personal one and nation serves as an institution. Institution functions more outwardly and take and shoulder responsibilty.
    Put the collective efforts in more constructive and practical approach so that it exerts the pressure. I believe in the politics of consensus rather than the revenge game. I’m a very strong supporter of Mahatma Gandhi and believer of Ahimsa. Every approach has to be peaceful.
    We divided, fragmented into tiny pieces and now individual is a group. Keeping slience is a very powerful tool. Let the roadmap be clearer so that one builts a bond of trust.

  4. Reality is really different. Keep up your hate mongering write ups. It is testimony for us in proving how really suppressive you are. The rally they planned could be totally out of context at this time but the idea of organizing it is to demonstrate the intent to return to the homelnand that these people dearly love.

    The way you guys want to serve Bhutan through violence and suppresssion actually proves our points as we try hard to convey this to the outside world of your brutal policies. They more we know this, the better for us.

  5. Is Bhutan only your country Mr.Namgay Tenzin? What a fool mind? We are not fighting against the country but against the rulers who evicted us without any reasonable reason.Please keep in mind we will be there in Bhutan in any means.

  6. Rp Subba!! However perfect and intelligent you want to prove, your political maturity seems way below than initially expected. The comment written is to discourage innocent people to prevent from dying by gong in the unwanted zone which has failed in the past with most able people being there. If you so dare to encourage such activities and want to injure the poor refugees, why cannot you try to go there. My point above were on practical basis that there will not be any outcome my making people disabled by the indian army bullets and you want to encourage in the name of long fight.

    If you so committed why left Nepal and gone to US. To prove your practical point go back and organise the march from there, other wise don’t encourage to ulimately kill innocent ones while you live in luxry. If you so well matured, why cannot you provide new ideas and avenues to fight the movement without killing. Just writing few articles, critising others and showing supermacy in the papers is not the movement, infact the ego fight which has been started by few others and yourself. Unless you have positive attitude and practical approach, yuor current approach will kill another three generations and you will be still writng and misleading the cause. When your formula for 20 years never worked, any smart brains will think of changing the formula but you seem to be one of those oldies of Bhutan to stick to your guns and limit the thinking of others as long as you can, finally taking the movement in the same circle round and round.

    Unless you change yourself, you will never expect others to change

  7. What makes a few of our contemporaries think that the 1995 peace march was the ultimate solution to our problem, and when it failed it won’t work anymore?

    No race in this world has attained justice over just two decades…(take this as fact in history)

    The Fight against racism is a struggle ahead… whether violent or peaceful! All races of the world have used modernism to fight and strive..

    Look at Mr. Namgay Tenzin, he is frankly scared of sitting on the table with peace marchers and talk with them….rather wants to shoot them? I salute the Bhutan Mass Media …. they have properly cooked the brains of all Bhutanese!! A Marvellous job…of state regimentization.

    And as indicated earlier…it will help to promote our cause…because racism will become more acute, noticeable … and then can be empirically proven to the world.

    And note Mr. Badal has been arrested without a formidable offence…whether someone is a communist or rightist or mahatma Gandhi or buddha…all have rights to freedom. Don’t they?
    Who the hell is Nepal police to detain them? And PM Nepal talks about reviving talks with Bhutan? He is the most assholic politician of modern Nepal.

    The struggle of Mr. Badal is not manipulative if you look at it from a general broad perspective.

    Atleast a peace march is happening!!! Are people able to do a peace march by comfortably living in the West…what makes you folks think that your decision is right? ….i.e. to have opted to have gone to the West?

    A single person does not have any importance in politics. Thats what our leaders fail to understand. Its the mass that does the magic to our state of affairs.

    So…. someone is trying to create a mass movement out of ragged and poorly living refugees…to stand against armed police or even the disgusting Bhutan government…or its heavily armed ARMY…

    ..with simple bodies of flesh…..

    THAT IS AN ADMIRABLE AMOUNT OF COURAGE OUR PEOPLE STILL MANAGE TO FEEL!!

    STOP CRYING OVER SPLIT MILK….because people living in the West will never be able to say…the struggle is here…right here on our lands…and we will stand against every challenge!

    And the struggle led by

  8. contd>>>> Mr. Badal is not a single man’s intention playing against a regime. Its a mass approval of what needs to be done. He can’t do anything alone and neither can any one of us!!!
    United we exist…

  9. my dear so called writers and country lover, how often you become foolish and try to walk on the dead track which is made by foolish leader,oh! refugee youths don”t listen the voice of those who already resettled,as they dear to hide in history with coward heart and aiming to lead luxurious life.don’t try to activated by their drama, rather become creative and carry ur movement creatively and dynamically.mad leaders and ressettle bhutanese are those who don’t want to struggle but they want to return after the achievement of freedom,so don” expect financial support,they will never come to support as they will never compromise their future with nationality

  10. I think we have to be honest when it comes to the real cause of this problem. There never really was racial discrimination against the Nepali immigrants in Bhutan. Few opportunistic leaders created the problem to gain political supremancy in Bhutan, and dragged the whole situation to this state. I am only angry with those leaders who created the problem for all southern Bhutanese.

  11. NAMGAY…..IAM VERY SORRY FOR UR CHILDISH THINKING N SHORT TEMPERED TYPE FEELING. U R NOT ONLY THE BHUTANESE CITIZEN N U EVER THOUGHT THAT OUR PARENTS WERE ONCE THE HARD LABORER IN BHUTAN WAY BACK TO SOME DECADE. U SEE NOW THEIR CONDITION,REMEMBER U R NO MORE OR LESS PRONE TO THE SITUATION. BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE.
