Pro-Hindu body takes responsibility for Birgunj blast
BIRGUNJ, Feb 16 – A pro-Hindu organization on Friday took responsibility for the series of bomb blasts that ripped across Birgunj yesterday.
A previously unknown organization that calls itself ‘Nepal Defense Army’ today owned up to the responsibility for yesterday's explosion at CPN-UML party office, district education office and Drugs Administration Regional Office.
In a letter circulated to the media, the organization, claiming to have been suppressed by the Royal regime, warned against the attempt to consign Hindus to a status of refugees by labeling them "extremists".
The letter was signed "Azad" or "the free".
Two weeks ago, the head priest of Kali Math at Raxaul — in the Nepal-India border –namely Sanjaya had come to Birgunj to express his solidarity with the Terai movement during which he had announced another revolution to declare Nepal a Hindu nation.
