After reading Sanket’s story in The Himalayan Times, I could not help getting emotional myself.
Sanket is the pseudonym of a member of an armed outfit fighting for their own state in Southern Nepal.
Due to the ethnic cleansing strategy by people like Sanket, hundreds of ‘Pahadis’ have been either displaced, or killed, or living under continual terror of communal violence.
Still, one could not remain unmoved when ‘tears trickled down Sanket’s eyes’ when he was asked about his kids.
That Sanket chose to be a ‘revolutionary’ was his own decision – so he will have to face the consequences.
But why should his innocent wife & six kids have to suffer for what he did/or does?
The govt & political parties should do everything to bring people like Sanket into the mainstream politics.
If Sanket wishes to come home, don’t make him stay outside for long.
Let him in, immediately!
