"The alternative to democracy is democracy"



Newly appointed officers, we would like to congratulate all newly appointed officers in the proud Royal Nepali Army, which has continuously devoted itself to duty since the national unification campaign begun by His Majesty King Prithbi Narayan Shah.

The reflection of loyalty for the motherland and the realisation of responsibility on the faces of all those who took part in the passing out parade of the Royal Nepali Army Academy shows that there is adequate enthusiasm and self confidence to face any challenge. We believe that instilling in oneself this academy's motto-knowledge, service and leadership-and the professional knowledge and capability acquired by this basic training will help substantially in one's duty.

For the defence of national unity, indivisibility and non-obstructed sovereignty, the qualities of being loyal, dutiful and true to one's job have always been alive in every patriotic Nepali's blood. It is because of these universal qualities that we are able to say 'Nepal' today, and are proud to be Nepalis. Therefore, it is necessary for all patriots to be devoted to the national interest and to execute responsibilities entrusted in them.

The responsibility, discipline and honesty of the Royal Nepali Army, guided by the military tradition of moving ahead with bravery that has no vested interest and no blemish, are exemplary at the national and international level. The leadership, knowing these proud traditions and concepts, should set examples for their juniors. And this is how you deal with any challenge.

All patriots are aware that the law and order situation has been complicated by terrorism. Terrorism has no boundaries. The alternative to democracy is democracy, not terrorism. The Royal Nepali Army has been mobilised for the safety of all citizens who have suffered from terrorism and for the defence of the fundamental rights guaranteed by the constitution. In this mission, the army's junior leadership has a crucial role to play. One must promise to fulfil the entrusted responsibilities under all circumstances, taking to heart the trust and belief of Nepal and the Nepali people.

Finally, we wish the best to all the newly appointed officers so they can serve Nepal and Nepalis wholeheartedly and be bright luminaries signifying patriotism. May Lord Pashupatinath take care of us all. Jai Nepal.
