Leaders of the World Hindu Federation on Saturday gave a call for the restoration of monarchy in Nepal. The leaders said Hindu organisations active in India and Nepal would join hands to launch a movement under the leadership of King Gyanendra to safeguard the rights of the king in the emerging political scenario in Nepal.

Inaugurating the general council meeting of the World Hindu Federation International (WHFI) the BJP MP from Gorakhpur, Yogi Adityanath, said Maoists managed to capture power through the barrel of

the gun.

Terming the Maoists anti-Hindu and anti- monarch, Yogi said the new government in Nepal under the leadership of the Maoists would be a major threat to the security of India.

“No doubt China would now try to make inroads in Nepal and strengthen its base. Maoists have a close relationship with the Naxal organisations and would provoke them to capture political power in India,” he said.

International president Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), Ashok Singhal said the interim government had declared Nepal a secular country. “It is a conspiracy to destroy Hinduism in Nepal. Maoists plan to repeat what China had done in Tibet.”
