(TibetanReview.net, Oct17, 2017) – Acts of genocide have been and are still being committed by Chinese in Tibet, the President of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) at Dharamshala, India, has alleged in New Delhi on Oct 16 while releasing a report by the Tibet Policy Institute, the CTA’s think tank.
The report, Cultural Genocide in Tibet, is cited as saying China is carrying out systematic annihilation of the cultural heritage of Tibet with the destruction of Tibetan Buddhism and religious traditions, education system, social breakdowns, lawlessness, communal disharmony, uncontrolled greed and a high growth in sex trade and alcoholism.
Releasing the report at the India International centre, Dr Sangay has continued that the Chinese were carrying out destruction of the Tibetan people’s religion and language and also carrying out forced removal of Tibetan nomads while continuing to transfer mainland Chinese people to the Tibetan Plateau.
“The influx of Chinese migrant workers, facilitated by the new railway line and an administration in favour of the migrants, are reducing the Tibetans to an increasingly disenfranchised minority in their own land,” thehindubusinessline.com Oct 16 quoted him as saying.
Referring to China’s endgame for Tibet, the report is stated to say, “In brushing aside the present Dalai Lama and preparing to appoint the next one all in the hope that Beijing can handle the Tibetan people, the Chinese authorities are travelling on the road to the destabilization of Tibet.”
The discussion on the ‘Issue of Tibet’ was organised by the Tibet Policy institute. The other speakers were stated to include member of Lok Sabha Ms Meenakshi Lekhi, Ambassador Kanwal Sibal, Prof Ming Xia from the City University of New York and Mr Jayadeva Ranade, former additional secretary at the cabinet secretariat, government of India. It was chaired by Prof Madhu Bhalla.
