(TibetanReview.net, Aug12, 2015) – Several Tibetans were hospitalized in Nangchen (Chinese: Nangqian) County of Yulshul (Yushu) Prefecture, Qinghai Province, on Aug 4 after they were severely beaten by Chinese police, said the exile Tibetan administration at Dharamshala, India, on its Tibet.net website Aug 11. The Chinese were unhappy and angry that Tibetans did not display happiness during a cultural show ordered by it on Aug 1, China’s army day.

The Chinese authorities were reported to have ordered the Tibetans to wear traditional costumes made from animal furs during the performances. But given the growing global revulsion against the use of animal furs, especially of endangered wild lives, and Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama’s advice against such kind of traditional clothing, the Tibetans felt that they were deliberately being sought to be presented in a bad light.

As the army day celebrations continued into Aug 3, with the Tibetans continuing to fail to show enthusiasm, Chinese police, armed with guns and electric batons, threatened them. Later in the night of the following day, these armed Chinese police barged into the tents of the performers as well as the Tibetan public and assaulted them with electric batons. They accused the Tibetans of having carried sad or unhappy expressions on their faces during the celebrations.

The Tibet.net statement said the injured were later taken to the county hospital wile and those with severe injuries were shifted to the Xining City hospital.
