Senior RSS Leader Calls on China to Officially Recognise the Central Tibetan Administration/ENG

DHARAMSHALA: Senior Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) functionary and convener of Bharat Tibbat Sahyog Manch Shri Indresh Kumar today reaffirmed his continued support for the cause of Tibet at a press conference held today at Hotel Centre Point in Lower Dharamshala.

He also called on China to officially recognise the Central Tibetan Administration and urged the Chinese government to engage in constructive dialogue with Tibetan representatives.

The press conference was organised by the Tibetan Parliamentary Secretariat and attended by Speaker Khenpo Sonam Tenphel and Deputy Speaker Acharya Yeshi Phuntsok along with officials of the Tibetan Parliament.

Shri Indresh Kumar emphasised the historical independence of Tibet and the role played by Tibet as a peaceful buffer between the two nations prior to its occupation.

“Historically, Tibet was never a part of China. It was only because of China’s aggressive occupation that Tibet and a slew of other nations like Mongolia became a part of China,” he said.

“Most of the colonised countries including India got their independence around 1940s in the aftermath of the Second World War. Unfortunately, Tibet lost its independence around that time.However, the Indian government has never accepted that Tibet was historically a part of China,” he added.

“Tibet used to be a peaceful buffer between the two Asian nations. India and Tibet used to share a 4000km-long border but there were never any skirmishes along the border. However, since Tibet’s occupation, the peaceful border has been heavily militarised with soldiers, air force bases and missile launchers. Therefore, it is clear that China wants to occupy the entire Himalayas for its nefarious ambitions,” he noted.

The RSS leader also pointed out that China should respect the Tibetan people’s aspirations and should not undertake activities to annihilate Tibet’s cultural heritage, its pristine environment or violate their fundamental rights in the name of development.

He further expressed his gratitude to His Holiness the Dalai Lama for making Dharamshala an international destination known for its peace and tranquility.

Acharya Yeshi Phunstok, Deputy Speaker of the Tibetan Parliament, thanked the RSS leader for his support to the Tibet cause and called him ‘a long time friend of the Tibetan people’.

“Shri Indresh ji has been associated with the Tibet cause from as early as 1997. Since then he has founded the Bharat Tibbat Sahyog Manch and Himalayan Parivar to advocate the cause of Tibet and the Himalayan regions. He has also raised his voice repeatedly for the people of nations and communities not recongnised by the United Nations,” he said.

The press conference was followed by a brief question-answer session.
