On Saturday, a three-person delegation from the Tibetan parliament in exile said that the situation in Tibet is dire because of the Chinese government.
The delegation asked the Indian government to urge the Chinese government to resume dialogue with the Dalai Lama without preconditions in an effort to end the Tibet-China conflict, citing the Freedom House’s Freedom Index report as evidence.
It has reached the point of cultural genocide and complete eradication of Tibetan identity in Tibet, Youdon Aukatsang remarked.
She is joined on her mission to bring attention to the Tibetan cause by Geshi Monlam Tharchin and Tashi Dhondup in the Indian states of West Bengal, Sikkim, and Odisha.
We want real autonomy for Tibet, in which the Tibetan people control all aspects of their own society, including cultural practices, economic growth, and environmental protection. We want a complete absence of weapons,” she said.
Human rights experts at the United Nations, according to the delegation members, have voiced grave alarm about the prevalence of colonial boarding schools in Tibet.
They alleged that thousands of Tibetan youngsters were being sent to boarding schools in an effort to eradicate Tibetan culture and language.
As Tharchin put it, “while we are flourishing here, our Tibetan brothers and sisters are suffering there.” Tibetans in India are tremendously thankful to the government and people of India for allowing them to live in the nation. She remarked, “We have been very resilient and hopeful; we have been in exile for over 64 years but our struggle is going on.” She went on to say that the Tibetan liberation movement has a bright future.
