(TibetanReview.net, Oct03, 2017) – An American woman of Chinese origin went on a berserk at a Tibetan photo exhibition at Dharamshala, India, commemorating the Sep 27, 1987 protest in Tibet’s capital Lhasa against Chinese rule. Claiming the incident never happened and calling the photos fake, Wen Qi Zhu, 43, took down pictures and proceeded to cut them with a scissor.

The photo exhibition was organized by the Gu-Chu-Sum movement of former Tibetan political prisoners in Tibet under Chinese rule.

The woman claimed that the Tibetan protests and the Chinese repression shown in some of the photos had never happened. She was also heard shouting claims of being a student of the Dalai Lama.

All efforts to reason with her proved to be futile. Lhagyari Namgyal Dolkar, President of the Gu-Chu-Sum, had her head grabbed and shaken by the Chinese woman when she tried to talk sense to her.

She also assaulted a Tibetan journalist filming the exhibition, resulting in the latter’s camera being damaged.

The Sep 27 protest in 1987 by a group of monks of Drepung Monastery was the first organized one in Tibet in decades and led to large scale protests in the following years, leading to massacres of Tibetans by Chinese soldiers and imposition of martial law in Lhasa. It also led to Hu Jintao, the then Party Secretary of Tibet Autonomous Region, being praised and handpicked by Deng Xiaoping to be groomed to succeed China’s Party Secretary and state President Jiang Zemin.
