Christians in Nepal are exulting over the national parliament's dramatic decision on May 18 to abolish the monarchy and declare the state secular, wiping out its tag as a Hindu kingdom.I guess the RSS and their ilk will demand that India now invade Nepal and reverse this? :)
"Our joy is beyond words," Simon Pandey, general secretary of National Churches Fellowship of Nepal (NCFN), told CT. The House of Representatives' unanimous vote, he said, will have "far-reaching impact on the life of the church." Most notably, Christians can now register their congregations and build church buildings.

Also from Christianity Today: with the dissolution of the absolute monarchy, some semblance of religious freedom has come to the neighboring Hindu kingom.
