दण्डहीनता तत्काल अन्त्य गरियोस्

वि.सं. २०५२ देखि २०६३ को बीचमा नेपालमा भएको सशस्त्र द्वन्द्वका क्रममा सशस्त्र संघर्षमा भाग नलिएका ठूलो संख्याका सर्वसाधारण लगायत हजारौं नागरिकहरु उपर सेना, प्रहरी र माओवादी पक्षबाट गैरन्यायिक हत्या, अपहरण, यातना एवं अङ्गभङ्ग, यौनजन्य हिंसा, विस्थापन, सम्पत्ती कब्जा जस्ता कयौँ घटनाहरु भए । सन् २००३ र २००४ गरी लगातार दुई वर्षसम्म त नेपाल “विश्वमा सर्वाधिक नागरिक बेपत्ता पारिने मुलुक” बन्न पुग्यो । रेडक्रसको अन्तर्राष्ट्रिय समितिका अनुसार द्वन्द्वकाबेला दुवै पक्षद्वारा नियन्त्रणमा लिइएकाहरुमध्ये १,३५० भन्दा बढी नागरिक अझै पनि बेपत्ता नै छन् ।
