A new constitution has been adopted amidst violent protests in Nepal, making it a federal democratic republic with seven provinces divided along ethnicity, but the new constitution has alienated many of these ethnic groups, especially the Madheshis in the Terai region, bordering India, who claim it has curtailed their rights.
