Gorkha kingdom expansion is not unification of Nepal

After Mugals became weak, all kings around started to expand their kingdom. So did the Gorkha clan. He won all the smaller & weaker state around as much as he could. After Sugauli Treaty, Nepal got its actual border. The then rulers did not do anything beside living lavish life. Nepal was born by stepping in corpses & bleeding blood of thousands. Inorder to maintain their lifestyle, they never respected the ex-nationalities, rather enforced their language, identity, religion & culture on all. They were least bothered about the citizens, of nations they conquered. Nation is about people, not mere boundaries.

Nepal is a nation among nation so we should respect diverse identities. Each & every ethnicity(nationalities of Nepal) have right to rule their own place, use their own language & make self decision. Capturing country does not make unity, respecting all & tying them with a bond does. If you can capture others’ nation, respect their nationality inside the present country.

If imperialism  or attacking and capturing small nations; later making a religious, cultural and linguistic imposition; marginalizing the natives; is a task of unification then if the same thing happens in the present time, will you be ready to accept the “unification”? Cannot we maintain our nationality and national integration by merely accepting our present national reality? I find no significance in considering expansion of Gorkha kingdom as Unification of Nepal; where no “theme of unification” was ever fulfilled; will ever increase national integrity; rather will unnecessarily glorify an expansion mission that initialized an ethnic cleansing and marginalization.

Here you can read how Prithvi Narayan Shah’s campaign was Gorkha kingdom expansion not Unification of Nepal.
