Exile administration concerned by misuse of Tibet photo in Myanmar conflict coverage

(TibetanReview.net, Aug16, 2012) The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) at Dharamsala has on Aug 14 expressed deep disturbance over the fact that a photo of Tibetan monks were being misused in a section of the online media in the news coverage of the recent violence in Myanmar involving Buddhist citizens and the stateless Rohingya Muslims.

CTA said a photograph of Tibetan monks standing before a pile of dead bodies appeared in many websites in Muslim countries, especially Pakistan. This photo of Tibetan monks was, in fact, taken during relief work in Kyegudo (Yushul) in eastern Tibet, after it was hit by a devastating earthquake on Apr 14, 2010. “The Tibetan monks extended remarkable service in the rescue and relief operations at the time,” it said. The monks, it may be recalled, performed religious services during mass burial of the dead.

CTA said a website in Pakistan (ColumPk.com, Urdu Current Affairs Portal) which carried the photo on Jul 30 removed it the next day after the CTA wrote to it. However, it added, the photo was still in circulation, with Zee News, a leading news channel in India, showing some Muslims carrying it during their protest in Mumbai on Aug 11.
