    Professor Phanindra a Nepali
    patriot leads the United Nepal
    National Front (UNNF) for the
    recovery of Nepalese lands from
    Bharat. The UNNF has submitted a
    memorandum to the Indian prime
    minister through the Indian
    embassy in Kathmandu, demanding
    return of Nepali territory merged
    into British India as per the Sugauli
    Treaty (1816). Nepalnews.com
    Shastra Dutta Pant, PhD says that
    “The total area of Nepal was 204,
    917 sq. km. The Sugauli Treaty
    reduced Nepal into 147; 141 sq.
    km. Nepal’s territory still left to
    India is 63,776 sq. km. India has
    to return this territory, the proof
    of which is discussed hereafter….

    The British left India without
    resolving the issues of the territory
    of Gowa, Daman, Dyuk, Jammu,
    and Kashmir, Laddakh, Hyderabad
    and other Nepali territory. Later,
    India forcibly absorbed remaining
    territory. India had made an
    attempt to forcibly absorb Jammu-
    Kashmir and controversial territory
    with China.
    Dr. Pant adds:
    But India could not annex two
    powerful countries China and
    Pakistan. The British had clearly
    delineated the boundaries of Sri-
    Lanka, Bangladesh, Sikkim and
    Pakistan except Nepal. Still, the
    half of the total Nepalese territory
    lies in India. We call the greater
    Nepal including our lost territory
    lying in India. The area of greater
    Nepal had expanded up to the
    Ganges plain in the south and the
    Tista River in the east The origin of
    the Satlaj River – the far eastern
    one out of five rivers closer to
    Lahore, Amritsar- was the western
    border of Nepal.
    Pant further adds:
    The map of greater Nepal is safely
    kept at national museum, Chhauni
    in Kathmandu. According to this
    map, half of the total territory of
    Nepal lies in India. India has
    forcibly kept this territory under
    its grip. Kuwait could become
    independent from Saddam Hussein
    because of the support of the
    western countries like USA. But no
    nation raises voice against the
    injustice of India over Nepal.
    Sunguali Treaty and the letter of
    exchange between Nepal and India
    should be interpreted in light of
    India’s bullying attitude and its
    colonial mindset. It is equally
    necessary to analyze 1950’s treaty
    to understand problems resulted
    from the open border
    Nepal has always suffered at the
    hands of Delhi. This probably stems
    from the fact that Nepal is a Hindu
    majority country and Delhi wanted
    it to join the “Indian Union†— a
    conglomeration of more than 560
    states.
    Nepal, the Gorkha Kingdom, itself
    was an amalgamation of three mini-
    states. It was Founded by Prithvi
    Narayan Shah (1768–1775), a
    Gorkha king who succeeded in
    unifying the kingdoms of
    Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur
    into a single state. It existed for
    240 years under the formal rule of
    the Shah dynasty during which
    time it failed to invade Tibet and
    then lost one third of its territory
    (Terrai and Sikkim) to the British as
    a restult of the 1816 Sugauli Treaty
    with the East India Company. Other
    than Sikkim Kalapaani is currently
    being occupied by India’s Indo-
    Tibetan border security forces
    since the 1962 border war with
    China. The Maoists formed a
    government after the 2008
    Nepalese Constituent Assembly
    election.
    In the 1950s, at the epitome of
    Bharati imperialism, when Nehru
    claimed half of China and called it
    a “Tibet’–the South Block in Delhi
    engineered intrigue in Khamandu.
    Delhi supported the conspiracy by
    pumping up the Ranas against the
    kings. The Ranas were in open
    conflict with King Tribhuvan
    implicated in Nepali Congress Party
    conspiracy against Rana power. He
    seeks and is granted asylum in
    India. Government troops desert to
    the rebel side and over 140 Ranas
    joined the dissidents. Delhi saw an
    opportunity to get Nepal to sign
    the so called “Treaty of Peace and
    Friendship†and Treaty of Trade and
    Commerce. Both are hated by
    Patriotic Nepalese. This was the
    same type of treaty that was signed
    with Bangladesh–and which was
    torn up by the August 14th
    revotion in 1975 when the Bharati
    puppet was killed in Dhaka and the
    Rakhi Bahni (the Indian occupation
    force) was kicked out of Muslim
    Bengal.
    The leader of the Communist Party
    of Nepal (Maoist) Prachanda on
    April 24, 2008 stated that the 1950
    treaty would be scrapped and a
    new pact would be negotiated with
    India, which also signalled its
    willingness to review the treaty.
    Delhi stepped in and has been
    playing power politics which has
    resulted in an impasse in
    Khamandu.
    Most Nepalese feel that the Ino-
    Nepali “Treaty of Friendship†was
    lopsided and totally in Delhi’s
    favor. Two areas Kalapani and Susta
    that obviously fall under Nepali
    territory but Bharat occupies some
    60 thousand hectares of Nepali
    land in 61 places across the
    country. The total area invaded by
    India in Kalapani stands at 36
    thousand hectares whereas in Susta
    some 14 thousand hectares of land
    has been encroached by the “big
    brotherâ€.
    Dirgha Raj Prasai has written a
    fantastic article in a Nepalese
    newspaper titled “Starting again the
    Conspirator role of Indians†dated
    3rd Dec. It is a fascinating read
    and gives us deep rooted animosity
    towards Bharat which has tried to
    engulf it — as it did with
    Hyderabad and Sikkim and as it
    attempted to do with Kashmir,
    Bhutan and Sylhet.
    This is what Dirgha Raj Prasai
    reports from Kathmandu, Nepal–
    “Yes ! Indian conspirators are again
    coming to sabotage Nepal. Karan
    Singh was the same man who had
    deceived Nepalese monarchy-2006.
    In the name of consensus with the
    traitors who were and are the
    Indian agents-Congress, UML and
    Maoist, Indian leaders and
    diplomats started anarchism in
    Nepal.
    Now the same conspirator-who was
    active to format the Bbauram
    Bhattarai as a PM in the name of 4
    point agreement with corrupts
    Madhesi leaders- Aalok Joshi has
    appointed the RAW chief. In such
    situation, all the Nepalese
    nationalist should be census and
    active to save Nepal and its
    prestige.
    Maosits in Nepal have been very
    Anti-Indian, and that is the reason
    why Bharat is so sacred of the Red
    revolution in Nepal–because it
    fears the red revolution spreading
    to the rest of India. Here is Bevash
    expressing his opinions.
    “The open border is always
    operating at the pleasure of Indian
    interest. India has time and again
    used the open border issue to
    threaten Nepal whenever it feels
    that Nepal is not responding to its
    interest. There are incidents of
    major transit points closed for long
    duration by India without
    consulting Nepal as a punishment
    for dealing with other countries
    without India’s prior knowledge
    and consent.
    However, after the birth of Maoist
    insurgency in Nepal, and especially
    in the past few years, India is also
    feeling the heat of negative
    implication of the left-wing and
    anti-Indian coordination in both
    countries that is linked to its
    internal security concern. So, it is
    the time for not only Nepal, but
    also India to rethink its strategic
    policy about the open border in
    the changing context of regional
    security as well as cross border
    undesirable activities. Being a small
    country, Nepal is suffering more
    from India in the negative
    consequences of the unregulated
    movement of population across the
    open border.â€
    Veteran border expert Buddhi
    Narayan Shrestha said that the
    official claim that the boundary
    problem between the two countries
    is just confined to Kalapani and
    Suata is grossly fallacious. He says
    that “China has already recognized
    Kalapani as an integral part of
    Nepal.â€
    This is what Prasia says:
    Cordial people to people level
    relations between Nepal and India
    has existed since the ancient times.
    We have to retain friendly relations
    with India for we share similar
    culture and religious traditions. But
    sadly Indian congress, ever since
    coming to power has been striving
    to destabilize Nepal. India, through
    its intelligence agency ‘RAW’, has
    been found continuously involved
    in destabilizing our national
    identities – royal institution, Hindu
    Kingdom and national language,
    which were developed along with
    the ideology of national unity,
    security and national identity.â€
    Barrister Munshi, a Bangladeshi
    analyst in his book also makes
    several charges against RAWs
    invovlement in Bangladesh and
    Nepal.
    Dirgha Raj Prasai advocates the
    monarchy, something that is
    opposed by Delhi. “The permanent
    institution of ‘Nepalese monarchy’
    can unite the nation as it had done
    since ancient time. Monarchy is
    still a popular institution. In
    between the two big neighbors-
    China & India, the monarchy has
    been playing a balanced role. So,
    Nepalese monarchy is the most
    convincing identity of Nepal’s
    independence and its sovereignty.â€
    Dirgha Raj Prasai informs us that
    Delhi doesn’t really get it. He says:
    But, Indians did not and do not
    like to understand the reality. The
    republic setup is not in the interest
    of this country, instead it is fatal.
    We will honorably fight against
    such anti national injustice
    resonant in republic setup and
    secularism. So, all the organs of
    the state shall unite, and in
    accordance with the 1990
    Constitution and in presence of the
    King, we shall strengthen this
    Hindu Kingdom. It is the duty of all
    Nepalese, whether in political
    parties or outside, Nepal Army and
    even the nationalists in the
    Maoists’ party to save this nation.
    Dr. Abdul Rauff an Indian from
    Hyderabad quotes Professor,
    Phanindra:
    Led by a Nepali literature
    professor, Phanindra Nepal, the
    Unified Nepal National Front is
    asking India and Britain to separate
    certain areas from four Indian
    states and return them to Nepal
    since they were part of Nepal‘s
    territory in the 19th century. ‘If
    our demand is not heeded now,
    one day, it is going to become an
    even bigger issue in India than
    Kashmir,’ the 58-year-old Nepali
    told IANS. ‘I have visited these
    areas and found that Nepalis of
    Indian origin as well as Nepalis
    forced to seek menial jobs in India
    support the demand.’
    Dr. Rauff further adds:
    Nepal also lost tracts of fertile land
    in its southern Terai plains but
    recovered that from the British
    later for helping the East India
    Company in 1857 to put down the
    Indian rebellion against the
    colonial rulers. Now, the Front is
    seeking to get back the conceded
    territory that is still part of India.
    ‘This is a just and legitimate
    demand,’ says Nepal. ‘In 1950, an
    independent India signed a treaty
    of peace and friendship with Nepal
    and both sides agreed that the
    earlier bilateral pacts signed during
    the British rule stood scrapped.
    ‘Therefore, the Sugauli Treaty is
    now invalid and India has no
    further rights to the ceded Nepali
    territory.’
    Last year, the Front unveiled a new
    map of Nepal, depicting the
    Himalayan republic with the
    addition of the land lying in India.
    It also sent a memorandum to
    Indian Prime Minister Manmohan
    Singh as well as Britain‘s Queen
    Elizabeth II, pointing out that
    Britain also has the responsibility
    of resolving the dispute since it
    was party to it.
    Nepal wants the land saying that
    India has a precedent of returning
    ceded territory. ‘The Indo-Bhutan
    Treaty of 1949 returned to Bhutan
    a 32 sq km strip of land known as
    Diwangiri,’ it says. Nepal feels the
    demand would become a mass
    movement once Nepalis realise how
    they would benefit from it. ‘Nepal
    would get back about 100,000 sq
    km,’ he says. ‘It will extend Nepal‘s
    borders till Bhutan and
    Bangladesh.. ‘This means Nepal will
    no longer be bound by India or
    dependent on it for trade.’
    Professor makes the case for
    “Greater Nepalâ€:
    British-India gave back some
    territories, located in the mid and
    western Terai as per the terms and
    condition. In this way, the Shah
    Kings with their great effort
    enlarged small Gorkha kingdom
    from 250 sq. km. to 500 times
    greater Nepal during their seventy
    years’ arduous effort.
    As per the term and conditions of
    the Sugauli Treaty, some areas
    located in the east-west and
    southern parts were on lease
    temporarily. Later, Nepal would get
    back gradually. The area kept on
    lease had occupied more than
    64,000 sq. km. The treaty had fixed
    the Tista and the Mahakali River as
    border in the east and west
    respectively. The Company
    Government had only activated its
    administrative activities in between
    Mechi and Tista, thinking that
    Nepal would again advance towards
    the east. In fact, greater Nepal, the
    real Nepal, of which land has been
    kept haughtily by India as done by
    Iraq to the case of Kuwait calling it
    its 19th state. One needs to analyze
    the history of Nepal and India and
    the treaties and understandings
    held between the two countries to
    understand how the above-
    mentioned land absorbed by India
    belongs to Nepal.
    Indo-Nepal War
    British-India declared war in 1814
    A.D. to annex Nepal into its
    territory. The British troop
    deployed in Morang, Bara & Parsha
    had to embrace defeat. Then the
    British troops attacked Jiatgargh
    fort in Butwal but it was defeated
    by Nepalis troops. Therefore, they
    could not dare to attack Palpa. In
    1814, British General Gillespie was
    forced to flee from Nalapani.
    However, later Nepali troop led by
    Balbhadra had to return from
    Nalapani due to internal political
    crisis of Nepal that resulted in the
    treaty of Sugauli.
    Here is the Indian perspective on
    Nepal. Rajeev Sharma writes about
    Indo-Nepalese relations in “South
    Asia’s Rectangular Triangle – Nepal,
    Bhutan and Indiaâ€.
    “Nepal, a poor advertisement for
    good neighborliness. Nepal has
    become a favorite staging post
    foimportantr enemies of India who
    use Nepalese territory for flooding
    India with counterfeit Indian
    currency notes, illegal arms, drugs
    and even terrorists. Thanks to the
    large presence of Pakistan’s Inter
    Services Intelligence officials in
    Kathmandu, Nepal has emerged as
    an important alternate route for
    infiltrating well-trained and well-
    equipped terrorists into India.
    Elements inimical to India have
    taken advantage of the fact that the
    more than 1850-km-long Indo-
    Nepal border is open and no visa is
    required for to-and-fro travel. As a
    result, Nepal has become an
    important transit route for
    smuggling fake currency, terrorists
    and arms and ammunition into
    India. And unlike Bhutan, Nepal
    has routinely done precious little
    to address Indian concerns despite
    the matter having been taken up by
    New Delhi with Kathmandu at
    senior political and official levels.
    Despite these pinpricks, India has
    never reversed its open-borders
    policy with Nepal. The long
    tradition of free movement of
    people across the borders — Nepal
    shares a border of over 1850 Kms
    with five Indian States, Sikkim,
    West Bengal, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh
    and Uttarakhand – continues.
    Much of anti-India activities being
    staged from the Nepalese soil are
    known to New Delhi and yet the
    Indian government has been
    unable to stem the rot. The reason
    for Nepal becoming a bug bear for
    India, rather than being a well-
    meaning neighbor, is that India’s
    influence in that country has
    consistently been on the decline.
    Not many years ago, India used to
    be the power in Kathmandu. The
    US, UK, European Union, the
    United Nations were nowhere on
    the Nepalese political radar screen.
    The influence of China and Pakistan
    was minimal. But this is no longer
    so. The influence of China has
    rapidly increased in Nepal and
    similar is the case with the US, the
    EU and the UN – all at the cost of
    India. Though in terms of influence
    in Nepal, China is still number two,
    behind India, but it is a close
    number two. The way China is
    going at a breakneck speed in
    helping Nepal in all areas,
    particularly road and infrastructure
    projects, China is set to be the
    most important foreign influence in
    Nepal in not too distant future.
