Peace activist organises ‘Global Peace March’ for free TibetDecember 26th, 2010 - 10:25 pm ICT by ANI
Dharamshala (Himachal Pradesh), Dec.26 (ANI): Mahesh Yadav, a peace activist, organised a ‘Global Peace March’ campaign here on Sunday to support exiled Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama’s movement for world peace and Free Tibet movement.
Jadav started his peace march from Madhya Pradesh’s Sanchi district and his rally would end in Lumbini in Nepal on January 30.
The main motive of the Peace March is to gain freedom of Tibet from China by peaceful and non-violent ways, and to gain global support from the world community for the fundamental right of Tibetans to live free as well as to establish Tibet as a religious Buddhist country.
“Today we idolize Dalai Lama to be an incarnation of Mahatma Gandhi and we want that Dalai Lama should win his freedom struggle like Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela won the freedom struggle through non-violence,” said Jadav.
“We want that Dalai Lama’s freedom struggle for free Tibet should be supported and Tibet should be safe as it is related to the security of India and the whole world. If we want to save the democracy, justice and peace of the world, then we will have to save Tibet,” he added.
Miss Tibet 2009, Tenzin Chozom was also present and supported the campaign.
“I think it is really very rare to support other country on Tibetan issue. He is supporting our country. That is great, I think. We are so lucky to have him,” said Chozom.
To promote his cause and non-violent struggle for the freedom of Tibet, Jadav has also formed an organization called the ‘World Tibet Congress’.
Dolma Gyari, the deputy speaker of ‘World Tibet Congress’, said the whole Tibetan community was very proud to be associated with Jadav and gave him their full support.
“It carries a very strong message and also for us it is a great source of encouragement and inspiration and it gives us the motivation to do more,” said Gyari.
Through the peace march the general public will be educated about the Tibet cause and would be inspired to join the noble cause and support the non-violent movement.
A Global Signature Campaign was performed on a 52 feet banner in support of the Tibet cause.
Jadav has made over 600 blood portraits of many world leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Dalai Lama and Barack Obama and has written many blood appeals to various national and international communities to save Tibet. (ANI)
