China’s cruelty against Tibetans
The local decision-making power is concentrated in the hands of Chinese party officials. According to human rights activists, the Chinese administration is forcing strict measures on the independent territory of Tibet in an effort to stretch its grip over the region. According to the latest report “Freedom in the World 2021: A Leaderless Struggle for Democracy,” the country has ranked second in the least free region in the world. Irrespective of reports, China claimed Tibetans have been enjoying free movement and have no interference from the Chinese government.
As per Karma Tenzin, a Research Fellow at the Tibet Policy Institute (TPI), the destruction of Tibet started a long ago when Mao Zedong was the President of the country. The researcher noted Zedong started destroying the education system in the name of cultural revolution. Later, the former President completely changed the education system of Tibet and tried to implement a new Chinese educational policy. At that time, China’s main intention was to eliminate the Tibetan language and to impose Chinese Mandarin as the medium of education and instruction for Tibetan students.
