News from Nepal

Krishna Neupane, a student from Nepal, just emailed this to me:
Maoists are proposing a new constitution and in the fundamental rights they propose to ban organizations or political organizations that support imperialist (for them Capitalists and also free marketers), if this constitution is passed in Nepal, I think the country is plunging into severe crisis of freedom.
Providing more information on the issue he explained:
I read it in the draft constitution proposed by Maoist, Its available in http://baburambhattarai.com/ - a website maintained by Dr. Baburam Bhattarai current finance minister and second in rank of Maoist Party. Its clause 3 (c) under article 10- Right to Freedom.

The constitution is not yet available in English, as soon as I get it I will circulate it. However, the media that has not delved into the details of the constitution and has reported that this constitution proposes for a liberal set of fundamental rights.
