"There was no caste higher than my caste," he said in a YouTube video. "I didn't want to mix with the people of the low castes."
So Dahal repeatedly dismissed a Christian evangelist who showed up day after day to share the gospel at his veterinary clinic in Kathmandu. Dahal, a Hindu priest and the son of a Hindu priest, told him to stop coming by, but the pesky evangelist kept showing up and talking about the "loving living only God Jesus."
"He bothered me because I didn't want to accept Jesus Christ. He kept coming and ministering the gospel. I kept rejecting him," Dahal said. "One day I got challenged. I wanted to prove that Christianity is a fake religion. Jesus can't do anything. I will ask your Jesus – 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening – if He is the real God, come on and touch me and change me for 30 days."
