Tamang Genocide in Nepal

According to the United Nations Definition of Genocidal practice it proves that in Nepal besides other ethnic groups such as Tharu, Magar including others Tamang has been systematically GENOCIDE by the rulers of Nepal. As per the  UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide Adopted by Resolution 260 (III) A of the United Nations General Assembly on 9 December 1948 Article 2 that states Genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such [1]:
(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
Article 3:
The following acts shall be punishable:
(a) Genocide;
(b) Conspiracy to commit genocide;
(c) Direct and public incitement to commit genocide;
(d) Attempt to commit genocide;
(e) Complicity in genocide.
Across the world whoever colonised indigenous lands they enslaved, abused, tortured, captured, controlled and treated in inhumane way in order to Genocide them that historical evidence proves.
In Nepal, historical background proves that those who came lately from India to save their lives from Muslim invaders to India they were the one who colonised and controlled Nepal and has been ruling since then and placing indigenous men inside the bar in the jail to nail them. 
Evidence suggests that only from 21 August 1932 AD Tamang ethnic member people have been permitted to write their surname "Tamang" by the rulers of Nepal. Till then they were called “Lama Bhotey”, "Murmi" or some other nomenclature in Nepal and prohibited from using the term
“Tamang”. The Nepal Government recognized the community as “Tamang” on the request of Sardar Bahadur, Jangba Bir Tamang, OBE, DMM, MC, [Officer of the British Empire, Distinguished Military Medal, Military Cross] who led a delegation to Shri 3 Sarkar, Bhim Shamsher Janga Bahadur Rana and Commander-in-Chief, Yuddha Samsher Janga Bahadur Rana. [Jhyojhyo, Edited by K M Tamang, Vol 2, No 2 2839 Ta lho (2003 AD) Page 17]
While I was studying in Australia I could not imagine that even in this 21st century any government officials can be that much ignorant racist fool to question civil service newly recruitment process candidates to ask racisal discriminatory question. I came across in the facebook regarding the question asked in 2014 civil service examination questionnaire about the largest population/ethnic group in the prison of Nepal stating, "Of those population who has been jailed in Nepal due to crime which ethnicity has 80% prisoners as per the government of Nepal record? and there were 4 options to the question as follow
a) Rai
b) Limbu
c) Magar
d) Tamang
and the correct answer was given to d) Tamang as published in National Newspaper, Gorkhapatra dated 3 September 2014.
This was NO Surprise to me since Tamang ethnic community is historically an inhabitant surrounding Kathmandu valley, a capital of Nepal so they were threat to rulers as they were against Shah Dynasty who fought in Nuwakot district with Gorkha King, Prithvi Narayan Shah and his troops who captured Kathmandu valley in 19th Century.
Tamang men had used as a porter (Pipa) and servants for different purpose in the royal palace by the feudal rulers. They were forbidden to join in military since they opposed rulers and fought against them. Their daughters, and sisters had used for sex trade in the royal palace to give sexual pleasure to the rulers. They even sold their daughters and sisters as a sex slave in India for British troops in 19th century from this practice Girls Trafficking practice and tradition started and established in Tamang ethnic group in which community even today still there is a high number of girls trafficking can be found despite international and national government efforts intensified in Nepal after democracy has been established in 1990.
Tamangs are inhabitants of the surrounding districts of Kathmandu valley thus predominately found in highly earthquake affected districts namely,Sindhupalchowk, Nuwakot, Dhadhing, Rasuwa,
Dolkha,Makwanpur, Kavreplanchowk, Ramechhap including Lalitpur, Bhaktapur, Kathmandu and   Chitwan. Their population constitutes 5.6% of Nepal's population as per the Census 2001, which places their population at 1,280,000, making them 5th largest population of Nepal and the most deprived community in terms of socio-economically. Besides, high girls trafficking in Tamang society, men working as porters in Kathmandu valley,  and involving in criminal activities such as robbery, thieving, stealing, etc committed by Tamang men are common compared to other community or ethnic groups that are all related to historical deprivation, discrimination and marginalised by the state classifying them as Bhote under the Enslavable Alcohol Drinker.
Same thing I suppose can be found in histories of Australia, USA, India and else wherever colonisation had taken place by invaders to indigenous lands they enslaved and put in poverty making them criminals.
Reading historical background of people, community and countries are essential to understand the present status why they are so much violent, backward, poor and involve in criminal activities. Otherwise we start to blame victims and appreciate perpetrators that common practices among those who have no idea about historical background from where fruits grown due to poor root.

  2. No one has asked you to believe. Here I am just sharing the fact based evidence how our past rulers had genocide certain community just because they are difference than rulers belief, language, culture, tradition, dress and so forth.
    I know UN is governed by hidden interest of USA and most of the UN staff members at higher levels are said that they are from CIA. Anyway but no one has challenged the definition given by the UN agencies such as World Health Organisation, UNFPA, UNDP, WWF, UN Women, etc for particular term or condition to date since UN members are those organisations who decided to sign and agree their charter and conventions as per their individual interest and of which Nepal is one of the UN members anyway.
