"The interim constitution, promulgated on January 15, 2007, declared the country a "secular state." Buddhist and Hindu shrines and festivals are respected and celebrated by many. The government celebrates most Hindu and some Buddhist holidays. Nepal also has small Muslim and Christian minorities. Certain animistic practices of old indigenous religions also survive."
The above is a quote from the US Dept. of State website noted below.
There's lots more on the website. The country is primarily Hindu, and there are issues relating to government representation by groups often discriminated against. It seems, that is, that there is no required religion.Source(s): http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/bgn/5283.htm
