Like most developing countries, Nepal practices freedom of speech under the rules of the Government.

Nepalese Law isn't imposed or followed. Weak law enforcement makes it possible for others to take advantage

People here believe that FREEDOM of speech is still limited specially when it comes to talking about the Government and highly ranked Government personalities

Freedom of Press is now more evident than in the days of King and those who rules before him.

Nepal is a progressive nation. People, specially, Journalists were optimistic in their fights to elect the recent Nepali Government who is rather off the track in providing total freedom to the print media

More than often, many believe that bar on Freedom of expressions results from the public itself such as those by protestors and innocent students who have no idea of the consequences of their actions such as vandalizing vehicles, public properties and so on

Of all the suppressions of freedom in Nepal, nearly 14% goes to the arrest of people violating their right to speak - these include journalists as well.
