Nepal: Blogger threatened

Nepali Voices reports on a blogger being threatened. ” Umesh Shrestha, the blogger behind hugely popular, has been threatened of ‘action within 24 hours if he publishes anything that directly or indirectly supports Maoists or terrorists’. An email with subject line reading ‘last information’ by Maoists Defense Group, not known so far, has threatened him. “


  • that is only for the sake of threatening…. paper tigers they are…..

    may be some mishchievous person did it… i never heard of the maoist defense group…..

    what i guess is some other blogger did it …. because of umesh making money form blogs…

    How come ” a Maoist group” threatnes a blogger not to publish”anything that directly or indirectly supports Maoists”

    Please review your source once again. Must be an “anti- Maoist group”

  • Nripen: My mistake. Should have written it more carefully. Will make the changes.
