DHARAMSHALA, April 7: A decade after Tulku Tenzin Delek, a visionary social reformer and a respected community leader, was arrested, worldwide campaigns demanding his release are gaining momentum.

Students for a Free Tibet, an international network of young people working in solidarity with the Tibetan people in their struggle for freedom and independence, has gathered thousands of letters appealing Tenzin Delek’s release.

The SFT India chapter joined in the global campaign, and collected signatures for a worldwide petition demanding Tenzin Delek’s “immediate and unconditional” release today in the exile Tibetan seat of Dharamshala.

“We have collected more than 45,000 signatures of people from all walks of life and their demands for Tulku Tenzin Delek’s release will be sent to Zhou Yongkang,, the then Sichuan Party Secretary in 2002 when Tulku was arrested for his alleged involvement in a series of explosions in Chengdu,” Tenzin Jigdal, Campaigns Director of SFT-India said.

“Allegations against Tulku Tenzin Delek have not been proven to this day,” Jigdal added.

Tulku Tenzin Delek has a history of working for the welfare of local Tibetans in eastern Tibet, including leading initiatives for the improvement of healthcare, education and religious institutions. Tulku was also an ardent environmentalist and advocated for the conservation of the environment in the face of China’s rampant logging and mining in Tibetan areas.

"On this day 10 years ago, Chinese authorities arrested Tulku Tenzin Delek for the simple fact that he was a Tibetan whose influence was growing because of his social work and community leadership. He has since been a prisoner of the Chinese state, and every day he spends in prison is one day too many," Grassroots Coordinator of SFT-India, Tenzin Dolkar said.


Zhou served as the Party Secretary of Sichuan from 1999 to 2002, the period during which Tenzin Delek was arrested and sentenced to death in a closed-door trial on bombing charges. After a high-profile global campaign, China commuted Tenzin Delek's death sentence to life imprisonment in 2004.

“Shortly after Tenzin Delek’s conviction Zhou was promoted as Minister of Public Security. In his current position as head of the powerful Central Political and Legislative Committee, Zhou oversees China's security forces and law enforcement institutions and has the authority to order Tenzin Delek’s release,” SFT said in a release.

Reports have suggested that Tenzin Delek’s health has deteriorated over the years. In 2010, a Chinese prison guard reportedly told Tulku’s relatives that the imprisoned reincarnate lama had “chronic cardiac illness and hypertension.”

“Due to the torture and abuse Tenzin Delek has suffered in prison, his health has deteriorated in the past ten years. He suffers from a heart condition and high blood pressure for which he is not receiving proper medical attention,” SFT said in the release.
