Discover People's War

Nepal is bordered by India and China. Geographically, the country is very rich. It has the highest mountain on earth, The Everest Mountain. Besides the highest mountain, the country has more than 200 peaks over 6000 m above sea level. The soil is very fertile but unexploited.

The Federal Democratic of Nepal knew a 10 year conflict known as People's War. It was a conflict between the government and the Communist party (The Maoist). The latter wanted to establish a democratic state by overthrowing the monarchy that ruled for more than 240 years.

The conflict lasted ten years (1996-2006) ended with Comprehensive Peace Accord signature. In 2008 monarchism was abolished and a constitutional assembly was elected. The communist party won the majority of the seats. 

There are more than 7000 Nepalis residing in Qatar working in different fields. They have different opinions toward the conflict.

Next days, I will interview some Nepali residing in Qatar to know more about this conflict.
