KATHMANDU:- The Human Rights and Peace Society (HURPES) staged separate sit-ins in front of embassies of India and China in Kathmandu demanding peace between the two neighbours.

On June 16, a clash occurred between forces of India and China in a disputed border area, leading to many casualties, it has been said. It is sad that two giants of South Asia were ‘heading to a war’ instead of becoming an example of peace, the Society said such act would pose a risk to peace of the region and the entire world.

The Society has demanded an end to clashes at the border between India and China and a solution to the problems through talks.

The protest was joined by the Society’s founding president Krishna Pahari, founding member Krishna Kandel, central secretary Bal Bahadur Gaha Magar, central member Namrata Kharel and President Uttam Pudasaini among others.
The protestors had placards reading ‘stop war’, ‘promote peace’, ‘peace, not war’.
