A new grouping of Christians was unveiled at a press conference in Kathmandu yesterday. The Nepal Christian Concern Group is an alliance of 20 Christian denominations and network groups including the United Catholic Alliance of Nepal. Pastor Chari Bahadur Gahatraj, secretary of the Nepal Christian Federation, a rival grouping, said: “Christians should be united, but we have to be careful that Christianity is not used by some who hold meetings and try to become powerful public leaders in a country where relatively few know much about Christians.”
