Khum Bahadur Khadka wrongly claims 94% Nepalis are Hindu
Sujit Mainali / August 24, 2015
Nepali Congress central committee member Khum Bahadur Khadka speaking at a function organized by the World Hindu Federation in Kathmandu on 26 July, 2015 claimed that 94% people in Nepal are Hindu.
At the function organized to discuss the preliminary draft of the constitution, Khadka speaking in Hindi said, “94% (people) in Nepal are Hindu, they follow Sanatana Hinduism.”

However, the national census conducted in 2011 by the Central Bureau of Statistics says only 81.3% people of Nepal are Hindu.

Therefore, Khadka’s claim is wrong.
