Why The Kailali ‘Protest' Was An Act Of Terror

On 24 August, the violent protests in Kailali, Nepal, resulted in the killings of at least seven security personnel (the number was as high as 20 according to other reports) and one is known to have been burned to death. I find myself asking, was this not an act of terrorism? In any other part of the world, if police officers were hacked to death, the consequences would be serious and protests and prayers for peace would immediately follow.
