Social and political issues


Red signal / reminder


Dear Tibetans in exile ,


In solidarity with Tibetan sweater sellers in Bahadugarh , I would like to express some of my humble opinions regarding the problems we faced in our day to day life in exile. It was very unfortunate incident and i was very worried about the safety of these Tibetan but it is also a indication that " WE DON'T BELONG HERE". It is a signal that we are guest here and we have to go back or take back whatever ours. In Bahadugarh ( Haryana) Tibetan market has been destroyed and beaten Tibetan people including women and children despite of having all requirements from authorities. It is just because we have no land and we have no place to live our life as a human being... There are many malls and markets which is main cause of the declination of local business but they are not targeted because they are belong here and they are powerful too. After the incident of Bahadugarh , we faced another incident in south India ( Bylakuppe) that local Auto Rickshaw Diver Association has filed petition against the Tibetan settlement and monasteries to Head police of Mysore. In the petition , they mentioned that illegal activities happening in the Tibetan settlements including selling and buying of drugs. And they also mentioned that monks are drinking alcohol and there's illegal beef marketing among the Tibetans. Whatsoever , it is very clear indication that we are no more welcome and we are not belong here and we shouldn't forget that it's huge red signal for all of us.

I always feel that we are too easy going people and some of our brothers and sisters think that we can live here forever which is wrong concept and it's politically wrong concept too. Yeah ! We are free here and we have better life here but we don't belong here and we have to go back some day. Those incidents are very unfortunate and it's terrifying too but for me it's red signal and reminder and it's poking our noses that " bro it's not your home " ..My dear Bhopatso, please be careful whatever you do and whenever you go and always remember that we have a cause to fight and we must finished what our ancestor started.

I can feel your anger and humiliations

because I am Tibetan too but please don't express the angers on social media sites and media. Only few Indian people attracted us and we can't blame all the Indians. So , in my view we shouldn't write abusive comments on social media sites. Don't express your anger to all the Indians as India has done well in humanitarian and education sectors in our society. We shouldn't forget that we are just guest here. Instead of commenting abusive and showing short term views ,we should focus on our cause and be unite . What we have to do is be unite and be solidarity with each other. I am sure that Indian law will play its role firmly and unbrokenly. We will get justice as India always stood for poor and innocent people and we must trust Indian judicial system.

Last thing i wanted to express that please try not to show your anger on social media and we must respect our host no matter what. We have to use those unfortunate incidents as our strength and source of unity. I hope CTA will do whatever they can to solve this problem and government to government talks should take place on incidents. We should be carful and be alert period like this because Chinese dogs may take opportunity to disharmony the relationship between locals and Tibetans.so , we have to be very careful while saying and doing anything. I am going to stop here with heavy heart...Bhoe Gyalo Jai Hind Jia Tibbat !

Since you've written in such amazing detail, it's difficult to just agree or disagree. There were a lot of things that made me go both ways. Probably someone who has been here for a long time, has worked with the Indian system can give a better picture. Maybe Tenzin Lekshay Tenzin Dalha

ཛམ་བྷ་ཚང་ ཡི་ཐོགས་ you are right its time for us to understand that our this is not our home. Life in exile is very comfortable for us Tibetans apart from one or two such incidents. Imagine the hell our brother are going through, in Tibet facing atrocities of evil China. Its high time our struggle from outside Tibet touch our brothers in Tibet.

Brother this made me tear up. I know that anger towards Indians right now is high, because of this shameful incident. But we must not forget years of support and sympathy. I agree with you that living conditions are not ideal and that it doesn't feel like "home", but it is the best we can get in exile. India is our biggest chance at reclaiming our birth land, let's not fracture this relationship in any way. We are in exile, but we haven't given up. Tibet will be ours once again.

Due to some people we cannot blame the community which has supported us for over 50 years. I long to go back but India too has been my home. There are bad people everywhere. This could have happened in tibet as well, police came to the rescue, aren't we taking the matter too far ?

I will like to quote what Malik said in another discussion on the same topic: "I don't think that this even was based on any discrimination between Indians and Tiebtans.

The police intervened and arrested six people in connection with the incident. They have registered them under Sections 148, 149, 323 and 506 of the IPC. source: Local shopkeepers maul Tibetan sweater sellers’ stalls in Bahadurgarh, six arrested - www.phayul.com

These kind of small clash happen all over India on different issues, unluckily it was Tibetans this time"
