Kathmandu, January 12-
The birthday of Prithvi Narayan Shah, also dubbed National Unity Day by some, has been at the center of a row ever since the demolition of the monarchy and declaration of Nepal as a secular republic.
Some see PN Shah as a mere cunning ambitious ruler from a poor terrain who envied the lush valleys and plains while others revere him as a far-sighted national unifier.
The issue demands some in-depth study and analysis to filter unwanted emotionalism and vitriol from the deliberation, therefore we will be expanding this stub in the coming hours and days as we move forward. -Editor
Activists and analysts like Ang Kaji Sherpa have been very behement against the discourse on national unification by PN Shah.
