Pashupatinath Temple
Kathmandu, Sep 6: The chief priest of Pasupatinath temple expressed the desire to return to India rather than face 'humiliation' following the Maoist attack on two Indian priests.

“The newly appointed Indian priests are not refugees taking shelter at the temple, we have brought them from Karnataka, after fulfilling all the criteria and following due process as per the Act and following centuries old tradition", chief priest Mahabaleshwor Bairy said.

“The temple"s accounts were also made transparent and they (the priests) are ready to cooperate in the matter", Nepal"s Minister for Culture Minendra Rijal said.

“The priests told the government that if Nepalese did not want Indian priests at the holy shrine, he and the four other Indian priests appointed there were ready to return home rather than being insulted."
