The overthrow and murder of a royal dynasty
is standard practice for Marxists:
witness what happened in Russia.


When the dust settles, I suspect we will find that
poor King Birendra, Queen Aishwarya, and most of their family were massacred
not because of their son's love-life or what an astrologer said,
but simply and cold-bloodedly as part of
the Sino-Islamic attack on Hindu civilization.

Who killed the royal family of Nepal?
by Rajeev Srinivasan, Rediff on Net, Jun 4, 2001

There is something not quite right in the agency reports regarding the mysterious deaths of the royal family of Nepal. First, there is the curious story that the crown prince, Dipendra, having massacred his entire family, then tried to kill himself. He might have succeeded, except he contrived to shoot himself in the back of the head. This appears rather difficult to do, especially with an assault rifle. So then who shot him? And the latest story is that an Uzi assault rifle "exploded". Very strange, that an explosion should have precisely targeted all these people.

Second, there was the immediate certificate of non-involvement given to China by that self-proclaimed expert on the affairs of the Indian subcontinent, Barbara Crossette of The New York Times, thanks to reader Sanjai who pointed this out to me. The Hindu newspaper, despite its name a left-wing paper, said the same thing: that the "so-called" Maoists had nothing to do with this, thanks to reader Suresh. Said Crossette:

"More recently, as democratically elected governments of left and right run by a few upper-caste families with little grassroots contact have stumbled, a powerful radical leftist movement, usually described as Maoist but not thought to be backed by China, has been on the march in the Nepalese countryside. The rebels [are] gradually encircling Kathmandu and severely damaging its economically important tourist industry."

Methinks the woman [and The Hindu too] doth protest too much. Did anybody accuse China yet? But here is Crossette, a consistent China-lover, instantly asserting that China was not at fault: suspicious, isn't it? And this is China's modus operandi -- stoke Maoist insurgencies as part of its missionary activity. Indonesia some time ago, Sri Lankan too, and ongoing activities in India. These are all part of the general empire-building tactics intended to result in the Greater Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere, the only catch being that all the prosperity will belong to China.

A Maoist insurrection right next door to occupied Tibet, just like the insurrections in India's Nagaland, Myanmar, etc -- the Chinese have nothing to do with these either, so horrified they would be at the suggestion, innocent and peace-loving as they are!

Wait, there's more: it is not China, it's India behind this outrage. Actually it's those darn Hindus; note the casual mention of caste in the above. As if the hoi polloi proletariat are running things in America: WASP elite do. Says Crossette:

"Underlying all the other tensions, the Nepalese continue to nurse a long-held fear that neighboring India may be behind the country's political problems. Leaders of Nepal's Congress Party, which was once banned but returned to political leadership a decade ago at the vanguard of the democracy movement, have acknowledged that they had considerable Indian support.

"India, which blockaded landlocked Nepal a decade ago to punish it for buying weapons from the Chinese, has again recently accused Nepal of growing too close to China and also of allowing Pakistani agents to operate from its territory."

Ah, a mere accusation regarding Pakistani agents. A Pakistani embassy official was caught with incriminating evidence about his involvement in the hijacking of the Indian Airlines flight that ended up in Kandahar. No, facts do not deter Crossette. One of these days I wish someone would explain to me why the NY Times keeps her on their staff.

So it's all India's fault. (Why isn't this the Sonia Gandhi Congress Party's fault? After all they were the ones who did all this.) Anyone remember Crossette's gem a few months ago where she explained that you see, true democracy is practised not in India, but in Pakistan and China? I wonder, is this woman related to Katherine Mayo, infamous author of that "gutter-inspector's report", Mother India? Why are some white women so anti-India? Like that Robin Raphel? I do have theories, but that's for another day.

Further, says Crossette, omniscient as usual (yes, she did write a book on the Himalayan kingdoms, which I suspect is as banal and meaningless as her book on India), goes on to implicitly suggest that Queen Aishwarya was a bad person whose death was no loss:

"Nepal, the world's only Hindu kingdom, experienced a huge political upheaval in 1990, when a democracy movement threatened the future of the monarchy, but stopped short of forcing the abdication of the king, who was widely accepted by the Nepalese to be a reincarnation of the god Vishnu. Nepal then accepted King Birendra as a constitutional monarch. But there was always far less sympathy for the queen, and the king withdrew significantly from public life after that...

The British Broadcasting Corporation's correspondent for South Asia reported from Kathmandu, the capital, that the crown prince had quarrelled with his mother over his choice of a bride. Queen Aishwarya had long been associated in the minds of Nepal's democrats with a rigid, outdated penchant for absolute monarchy and social conservatism. Dipendra had made efforts to appear more open to the Nepalese people."

Yes, wicked queen, indeed: off with her head. How dare she have an opinion on her son's wife-to-be? I wonder what Crossette thought of the British queen's opinion of her daughter-in-law Princess Diana -- was she entitled to one?

And more on what a terrible person King Birendra was: "Birendra inherited from his father a system of partyless rule through rubber-stamp local and regional councils known as panchayats. The system afforded only the barest facade of democracy and was a constant irritant to the people of Nepal, who saw in it not only unbridled royal privilege but also the source of corruption and the abuse of political power by royal favorites who had no interest in the development of this mountainous country, still one of the poorest in the world."

Yes, good thing the king was killed: let us bring on egalitarian Maoist rule, as in Tibet!

The overthrow and murder of a royal dynasty is standard practice for Marxists: witness what happened in Russia. (The Hindu was magisterial about this issue: there is no comparison between the royal massacres in Russia and Nepal, they declared. Really? And why is that?) So why not do this in Nepal too, to put even more pressure on India, as part of the continuing Chinese encirclement of India?

The first response to the Indian warming up to the US was the lease for the port of Gwadar in Pakistan, with the intent of also building roads to link it to the Karakoram Highway across Pakistani-occupied Kashmir.

When the dust settles, I suspect we will find that poor King Birendra, Queen Aishwarya, and most of their family were massacred not because of their son's love-life or what an astrologer said, but simply and cold-bloodedly as part of the Sino-Islamic attack on Hindu civilization. There are Judases everywhere who will betray their own to the enemy. It is a bloody coup d'etat, and this is the second Chinese response to India's support for US positions. Didn't Chinese strongman Zhu Rongji just visit Nepal two weeks ago? And The Hindustan Times suggests that the new regent, Gyanendra, is close to the Pakistanis.

I have noticed that Marxists kill Hindus with no compunctions: for instance this has been going on in Kerala's Kannur district for some time. Every person killed by the Marxists there is a Hindu, and that is of course not news. But when they started killing Muslims, this became big news; there was outrage in the 'secular' media. Naturally, the Christian-Muslim-Marxist alliance to destroy Hindu civilization has to be preserved at all costs!

I remember reading somewhere recently that there are also massive conversion activities going on in Nepal by both Pakistan and the Christians. And so the war goes on, for the total annihilation of the only civilization that has withstood the thrust of the Semites for all these centuries.

Who killed the Royal Family of Nepal? by Rajeev Srinivasan

Nepal PM says anit-China activities not allowed, Outlook India, Aug 17, 2011 Nepal today vowed not to allow its soil for any anti-China activities, as a high-level visiting Chinese delegation announced a USD$50-million assistance for development projects in the country. The high-level delegation led by China's top security czar Zhou Yongkang, a member of Standing Committee of Political Bureau of Chinese Communist Party, met Prime Minister Jhala Nath Khanal at his office in Singha Durbar. During the meeting, Khanal, who is currently a caretaker prime minister after his resignation, said the relations between Nepal and China are based on 'Panchsheel'. Reiterating that Nepal has embraced the One China policy, he assured the Chinese delegation that the government would not allow to use the Nepali soil for anti-China activities, amid Beijing's concerns over growing influence of the Dalai Lama among Tibetan exiles in the country. Zhou, who is in charge of China's security apparatus, pressed for boosting security cooperation along the Nepal-Tibet border and ensuring that Kathmandu continues to clamp down on anti-China activities of Tibetan exiles and growing influence of the Dalai Lama on them. Prime minister thanked Zhou for bringing the goodwill of Chinese people and also for the aid package under various agreements, which were signed this afternoon. Prime Minister Khanal also extended an invitation to Premier Wen Jiabao to visit Nepal at his earliest convenience. Zhou, arrived yesterday along with a 25-member delegation, sincerely hoped for the successful conclusion of present transition period so that peace and constitution are completed and stability is established in the country, according to statement issued by the PM's office here. The Export-Import Bank of China has agreed to provide a loan assistance of Rs 1.7 billion to Nepal for the implementation of Kathmandu 220 KV Transmission Line and 132 KV Bay Extension Works Project of the Upper Trishuli III ‘A’ Hydropower Project, according to the National News Agency. The Upper Trishuli III ‘A’ Hydropower Project aims to generate 60 MW and is under construction with Chinese help and the project is expected to be completed by 2014. Similarly, the Chinese government has agreed to provide an assistance of Rs 1.67 billion to Nepal for the implementation of mutually agreed development projects. The grant assistance is a part of continuing economic and technical cooperation mechanism between the governments of China and Nepal. Similarly, the Public Security Ministry China has agreed to provide the grant of Rs 110 million in the form of police equipment to the government of Nepal. It is said that the main objective of this assistance is to support and enhance the capacity of the police forces in Nepal.

Nepal Decade in Pictures, Nepal Times, Dec 24, 2009
At the very beggining of the decade, King Birendra’s family members were killed in a shootout in Narayanhiti Royal Palace. King Gyanendra was crowned the king of Nepal after Dipendra died in a coma. It was second such ceremony for him having once been oferred the crown during the Rana regime. Maoist insurgency had been going on for almost five years when the massacre took place. In 2001, they attacked the Royal Nepal Army base in Ghorahi, dragging the army into a war that till then was fought by the police. Human rights violations were rampant on both sides. At least 36 civilians were killed when the Maoists ambushed a passanger bus in Chitwan on 6 June 2005. The Maoists and the government first met for talks in 2003, which was unsuccesful and the rebels [Maoists] went underground again. On 1 February 2005, King Gyanendra dissolved parliament and took complete control of the government, blacked out the media and even switched off mobile phones. Violent protests erupted all over the country in opposition to the king's move. On 22 November 2005, rebel [Maoist] leader Pushpa Kamal Dahal and the Seven Party Alliance signed a 12-point agreement brokered by India to struggle against the king’s rule. Together the seven parties plus the Maoists launched the pro-democracy street protests on 6 April 2006.

Ten years and over 16,000 lives later, the Maoist insurgency finally drew to a close with the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Accord on 21 November 2006. The CA election on 10 April 2008 was “largely peaceful” although there were reports of intimidation and booth capturing. The Maoists emerged as the biggest party, winning 240 out of 601 seats. The newly formed Constituent Assembly passed a resolution with near total unanimity to declare Nepal a democratic republic on 28 May 2008. The new CA introduced a new national anthem but major issues regarding the new consitution - including the forms of governance, modality of restructuring the state on federal lines and preamble - remain contested. After months of haggling over the post of president and prime minister, the Maoists finally formed the government on 16 August 2008 in the leadership of party chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal. The Maoist led government run for nine months until their failed attempt to sack army chief. The Maoists resigned from the government on 4 May and launched protests demanding 'civilian supremacy'.

THE woman who unwittingly prompted a bloody massacre in Kathmandu's royal household five years ago is finally to put the past behind her with the disclosure yesterday that she is to marry. The late Nepali crown prince Dipendra [allegedly] massacred 10 members of his family on June 1, 2001, before turning the gun on himself in a drunken rampage fuelled by his family's refusal to allow him to marry Princess Devyani Rana. Five years later, the 34-year-old princess has found new love with Ashwarya Singh, a scion of one of India's leading noble families....

Murder most royal, BBC, Jan 6, 2002
In June last year, Nepal's crown prince massacred his entire family in their royal palace. A television programme being screened on Sunday on BBC Two at 2100 GMT reveals how forbidden love and political frustration drove Crown Prince Dipendra to murder. Interviews with massacre survivors, royal cousins, courtiers and friends allow viewers a new insight into the secretive Nepalese royal family and dismiss conspiracy theories that the crown prince was not the murderer. In an emotional interview, Princess Ketaki, Dipendra's aunt, who was present at the massacre, reveals that the crown prince's attack was premeditated and not, as some reports suggested at the time, the result of him taking a combination of drink and drugs. She tells how the crown prince looked before he shot his father, King Birendra: "He looked exactly like the Terminator, absolutely expressionless and very focused, and that look still haunts me. "He was out there spraying bullets like a madman. He was kicking bodies and just shooting them at close range just to ensure that they had died."...

The tragedy was fuelled by the king's refusal to let the crown prince marry his lover, Devyani Rana, who he met in 1989. The crown prince's mother, Queen Aishwarya, was particularly opposed to the union because Devyani Rana's mother came from the royal family of the Indian state of Gwalior - considered to be of lower social status than the Nepalese royal family. Devyani's father was also a politician, and came from a rival clan to the queen's....On 1 June 2001 Crown Prince Dipendra went on the shooting spree in the royal palace, killing his parents, sister, younger brother and five other royals. Crown Prince Dipendra was found with a single bullet wound through the head. On 2 June he was proclaimed king, but died two days later in hospital. His uncle, Gyanendra, became Nepal's third king in three days. Devyani Rana fled Nepal and is reported to be in Europe....

Nepal's Royal Family, Royal Tragedy, Jun 2, 2001
...With all local news and TV showing a montage of temple pictures accompanied by mournful music, people turned to international news agencies for any information. It wasn’t good. The entire family of His Royal Highness King Birendra was gunned down during a family get-together at the Royal Palace in Kathmandu. BBC and CNN reported that nine members of the Royal Family including King Birendra, Queen Aishwarya, their children, Prince Nirajan and Princess Shruti, youngest brother of the King, Prince Dhirendra, two sisters of the King, Princess Jayanti and Sharada, and both their husbands had been massacred, allegedly by the King’s oldest son, Crown Prince Dipendra, who lay in a coma in Chaunni Military Hospital, after turning on the gun on himself in an apparent murder-suicide. The reason given? Over a dispute about the Crown Prince’s choice of a wife...

But Nepal refused to believe. That their King was dead and the Crown Prince responsible. Throngs of people filled the streets of central Kathmandu looking for any answers. People made their way to the gates of the Narayanthity Palace and the nearby office of the Raj Parishad, (Privy Council) where they learned that an emergency meeting had been called to name the next monarch of Nepal. With state-run media offering no official statement, rumors were rampant and speculation flew about the King’s second brother, Prince Gyanendra, who was luckily or conveniently away from the Palace that night. And people wanted answers....

The announcement came over Nepal TV and Radio Nepal. “The King and Queen and many family members had passed away in an unanticipated event at the Royal Palace the night before.” Crown Prince Dipendra was now named the new monarch of Nepal, even though he lay in a coma, caused by injuries suffered in the same unanticipated event, and in spite of the fact that he was seemingly the gunman. No answers were given and more questions raised. Due to his Royal Highness King Dipendra’s incapacitated state, Prince Gyanendra was named Regent to carry out the formal responsibilities. And more shockingly, it was further announced that the King, Queen and family members would be cremated at Pashupati’s Aryaghat that very evening, with the funeral procession beginning at 4:00 from the Chaunni Military Hospital and winding through the city. As soon as the route was announced, people began gathering to say farewell to their beloved King....
