Nepalgunj has a
very diverse culture. People believing in different
religions like Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Christianity
etc and atheists too live here. Similarly people
of different ethnicity also live here.
But the harmony
and peace amongst different ethnicity and cultures
here was badly disturbed by the riot that broke
out in the last week of December 2006 causing
violence between Madheshi (people of Terai origin)
and Pahades (people of Hilly origin). At least
one person was killed and dozens others injured
in the clashes and the local administration had
to impose curfew extended to several hours to
pacify the riot.
