Largest Tibetan NGO Censures China’s Attempts to Rewrite History

17 january 2012 002Dharamshala: - Januaray 17- Over 300 Tibetans took out a protest rally at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi today against the visit of Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo who is in the Indian capital to hold border talks with India.

Coinciding the mass protest at Jantar Mantar, 11 Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC) activists stormed the India-China border talk by chasing the Chinese special representative Dai Bingguo at Hyderabad House during the border talk and at Hotel Maurya Sheraton where he is staying.

11 Tibetans including 5 boys and 6 girls have been arrested and in police custody, said the press release by the TYC today later in the day.

China has no right to rewrite Tibet's history and talk about Tibet's border, said the press release.

The press release said that China's State Councillor Dai Bingguo's two-day visit to New Delhi to attend the 15th meeting of special representatives to discuss "Sino-India border" issue is illegal and insensitive.

"Both countries are well aware of the fact that any territorial talks is inextricably linked to the issue of Tibet. Until China's forceful invasion of Tibet in 1949, India shared its northern border with Tibet and not China. It was an independent Tibet, which signed an agreement in 1914 demarcating the line between India and Tibet," the release said "China has nothing to do with it and has no legitimate right to claim ownership. Therefore, these talks can bear no concrete or long-term resolution as long as the issue of Tibet is not included in the agenda for discussion. The two countries cannot continue to ignore the elephant in the room and rewrite history."

This year marks fifty years since the 1962 Sino-Indian war. Half a century in a nation's history is not long enough to forget the betrayal, humiliation and the corrosion of trust it supposedly built following the Panchsheel Agreement of 1954. Therefore, Dai Bingguo's pronouncement of lofty words such as friendship, cooperation and peaceful development etc. should only be taken with a pinch of salt because while these words reverberate in the corridors of Hyderabad House, China's active encirclement of the "string of pearls" is becoming more visible.

The Tibetan Youth Congress, which is the largest Tibetan non-governmental organisation has consistently reiterated its position for an independent Tibet devoid of China's intrusion. It opposes and condemns China's continued attempts to undermine Tibet's historical position in this region by distorting facts and forging new relationship on lies and deceit.

"TYC believes that it has a significant political role and responsibility to speak on behalf of Tibetans all over the world and express its' condemnation on any talks related to Tibet's border and resist history to be rewritten," said the release.
