Top 5 weird laws of Nepal

"Nepal ko kanun daiba le janun" is a very popular quote of Nepal. In this post I am going to show you the fives laws that will make you amazed. These laws are the most stupid law ever made and they really suck..!! I don't know who made these laws and what was going in his mind..? Ok, lets start our countdown.. 

5. Restriction on sexual scene in movies

Nowadays most of the Nepali movies contain either sexual scene or vulgar words spoken on it. but, According to Some Public CrimeAnd Punishment Act 2027, it is out of law to show sexual scene in the movies. Not only that the movie cannot be released even if it refers the sexual information. If it is for public health awareness purpose then it is fine otherwise it a criminal act. No person can use vulgar words not only on film but also in real life too.

4. Begging is illegal

Every day we see beggars begging on the streets of Nepal. Begging is the practice of imploring others to grant a favor, often a gift of money, with little or no expectation of reciprocation. Beggars may be found in public places such as transport routes, urban parks, and near busy markets. Besides money, they may also ask for food, drink, cigarettes or other small items. According to Begging Prohibition Act Nepal it is not allowed to beg, if anyone is found begging, then he or she can be punished Rupees 75 as maintained by law.

3. Limitation on decoration of homes

This law is very funny type of law . In the very act it is mentioned that the concerned buildings should not be decorated heavily using lights, flowers and other decorating materials. I don’t know the reason why this law is made for. The houses of Nepal are not allowed to be decorated h­eavily, if done then it’s illegal. This means we do illegal crime in tihar by decorating our home. Who the hell made this law and what was going in his mind.

2. License for conductor

We all have travelled in public buses and most likely faced the multitude issue where the conductor often ask us to go deep inside the vehicle so that other passengers could be adjusted. Yes, those conductors must have a license according to the Motor Vehicle Act, Chapter 5. To get that license the conductor should be 18+ but remember and think yourself how many of those conductors in our country are at least 18.

1. Limitation on the number of attendants and band members in wedding ceremony

We all have been attendants’ in wedding ceremony either of our friends, brothers or other relatives, particularly, it is known as ‘Janti’ in Nepali community which means attendants from bridegroom’s side. According to the Social Practice Reform Act 2033, the number of those attendants should be maximally 51. If it is more than 51, the penalty is rupees 10,000 and up to 15 days jail punishment. Furthermore, it is also stated that the band members that are taken to the ceremony should not be more than 11. Else if the punishment is as of mentioned above. So, don’t take band members of more than 11 in your marriage otherwise you’ll be punished according to the law.
