(TibetanReview.net, Jun20, 2015) – China said Jun 19 that in order to guide religions to fit in a socialist society, it had provided radio and television equipment and access to services in all the 1,787 temples in the Tibet Autonomous Region. The project was launched in 2011 by the local authorities, reported China’s overseas party mouthpiece Global Times Jun 19, citing the regional party mouthpiece Tibet Daily.

The report said the project helped monks and nuns better understand the ruling Chinese Communist Party government’s policies and regulations, “improved their ability to distinguish truth from rumors, and also provided an effective channel to guide religions to fit in a socialist society.”

With most of the temples being located in the mountains, technicians had to carry the equipment on their backs or use horses, the report added.

China does not allow Tibetans to watch or listen to overseas channels or services or programs not approved by it and the equipment provided to the temples give access only to the official Chinese media.
