Workshop to solve registration problems of Tibetans in IndiaMay 2nd, 2009 - 2:40 pm ICT by ANI
Dharamshala, May 2 (ANI): Hundreds of Tibetans, including Buddhist monks and nuns, who are facing some hiccups in getting their registration certificate, gathered here to attend a workshop to seek solution to their problems.
The exiled Tibetans in India face many troubles and tribulations to get a registration certificate (RC) from the foreigners’ registration officer.
To make the process convenient for them, the Himachal Pradesh police has launched a campaign under the community-policing scheme ’self help for peace’.
“We have launched this campaign under the community policing scheme called ‘Shite Rogio’, which means ’self help for peace’. We don’t want any Tibetan who has arrived in India in 2009 without any RC or valid document till December 21, 2009,” said Shubhra Tiwari, Additional Superintendent of Police, Kangra.
Tibetans who attended the workshop, organized by the local administration, were quite relieved with this initiative.
“Tibetan people who don’t have their RC are here. Some of the police officials are also here to meet us and to solve the problem of RC,” said Rinchen, a Tibetan youth.
Tibetans have found a new home in India and want to preserve their unique religion, culture and identity that was endangered in their own homeland as a result of Chinese occupation of Tibet. (ANI)
