Dalai clique must take care of its own human rights problems in India: Peoples DailyMay 2nd, 2008 - 1:57 pm ICT by admin
New Delhi, May 2 (ANI): The People’s Daily, the mouthpiece of the Communist Party of China (CPC), has said that Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, does not have the right to talk about human rights issues in Tibet, and should concentrate on improving the socio-economic lot of exiled Tibetans in India.
In an article titled “The ‘Tibet Issue’, the mouthpiece says the recent developments in that region have nothing to do with human rights.
Columnist He Zhenhua, who wrote the article, the old Tibet, under the rule of the Dalai clique, practiced the notorious political system of slavery, by dividing Tibetans into different classes.
It advised the Dalai clique to take care of its own human rights problems, referring to the living conditions of exiled Tibetans in India.
Most exiled Tibetans live in the slums of Dharmsala, the “capital” of the “Tibetan government-in-exile,” in India, and they have to hand over “independence donations” to the “government-in-exile,” the article said, without elaborating.
The exiled Tibetans, who are suffering from linguistic and emotional barriers, enjoy no human rights at all, it claimed.
The article cited the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” to support its view, to deny the claims of the Dalai clique and assert that Tibetans have enjoyed their rights since the Peaceful Liberation of Tibet.
According to the article, the Tibet Autonomous Region has for years maintained an average of 12 percent annual growth, while the government has provided free medical services to rural people and free education and food to their children. Tibetan residents are now experiencing fast growth in private housing, it said.
In the early years of its exile, the Dalai clique disturbed the life of border residents in Tibet by force, the article said.
In recent years, it tried to infiltrate or plot and stir up violence in Tibet, which has been detrimental to the lives and developing rights of Tibetans, the article said.
The article concluded by saying that the Dalai clique has tried to stimulate ethnic sentiments and win support from the West, so as to realize the “Independence of Tibet” and split China. (ANI)
