Racism is a disease in Nepali society. People are still raising issues of caste and culture. Malvika Subba wrote a long Facebook post in response to ‘Limbu daju bhai’ who criticized her, a Limbu, to marry a person of Newar caste. Malvika asked people to be positive and understand her choice of the best person she could find for her life. It is not a matter of caste but the person you are attached to.
In addition to explaining the reason of her marrying Riyaz Shrestha she also asked people not to interfere with her personal life.
