Nepal’s Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli said that hate speech in the name of religion should end. The Prime Minister said this today while laying the foundation stone of ‘Peace Suddammawasa – Elderly Residential Home’ in the premises of Sulakshana Kirti Bihar in Kirtipur Municipality.
He further said that the message of every religion should be peace, harmony and unity. “Religion should be for harmony, not for division and fragmentation.”
The PM further said that Buddhist philosophy had given the message of peace and unity to one and all.
The government is attempting to reduce the dependence on foreign countries or agencies for the promotion of Buddhist philosophy and the development of Lumbini. “The peace-inspired Lord Buddha was born in Nepal and we must move forward with the acceptance of enriching Lumbini,” he said.
Rumors about the birthplace of the Buddha were gradually dispelled, stating that the name of the birthplace of Gautama Buddha had brought him about American reforms in the curriculum of his school. “The US has removed inaccurate content from textbooks, stating that Buddha was born in another country and not in Nepal.”
Noting that Buddhists around the world have developed Lumbini as a center of faith, he said that a meditation center with a capacity of 5,000 seats was under construction.
He also said that the government is accelerating efforts to make the national campaign of ‘Prosperous Nepal, Happy Nepali’.
He further said that no one would feel Nepalese insecurity and experience a shortage in the country. “No one needs to feel oppressed, cheated and insecure. The government is ready to resolve these issues, ”he said.
Kirtipur Mayor Ramesh Mahajan promised to extend all possible help in the construction of residential houses for senior citizens. On the occasion, the Math Head Dr. Anoja Guruma said that the elderly house was being constructed at a cost of Rs 300 million.
Also, on the occasion, PM Oli on behalf of his spouse Radhika Shakya announced assistance of Rs 500,000 for the construction of the house of the elderly.
