"We urge the Nepali government to repeal this unjust law and amend Article 26 (3) of the constitution as they both curtail the right to freedom of religion or belief and undermine Nepal's commitments under international law, a contradiction made even more striking as Nepal assumes its seat on the Human Rights Council," said CSW founder Mervyn Thomas in a statement, according to Christianity Today.
Christian Solidarity Worldwide said there are continued reports of government agents harassing and arresting the "Damas de Blanco," Spanish for "Ladies in White," many of whom are the wives and other female relatives of former and current political prisoners, as they attend Mass on Sundays dressed in white to symbolize peace.
