Freedom Forum is concerned about the Statement of the Embassy of China in Nepal after Kathmandu Post published an article with the headline ''China's Secrecy has made coronavirus crisis much worse.'' which was written by Ivo Daalder. The article was accompanied by a photo of mao with a mask.
Earlier, the article was published in The Korea Herald. Link of the article: (https://bit.ly/2P8l47T ).
The article is not hate speech. It was just the expression fo opinion. As Nepal is a democratic country, freedom of expression and press freedom are the rights guaranteed by the constitution of Nepal. Hence, the Embassy of China releasing such a statement is unacceptable and also it is against the notion of press freedom.
