Nepal Plans New Criminal Code Forbidding Evangelism
Five years after it abolished Hinduism as the state religion, Nepal is working on a new criminal code forbidding a person from one faith to "convert a person or abet him to change his religion.” Article 160 of the proposed code also says no one will be allowed to do anything or behave in any way that could cause a person from a caste, community or creed to lose faith in his/her traditional religion or convert to a different religion. The proposal would also prohibit conversion "by offering inducements or without inducement,” and preaching "a different religion or faith with any other intent.”
