Dharamshala: The Tibetan government in exile says that over 220 Tibetans killed, 1,294 injured and 290 sentenced, more than 5,600 were arrested or detained and over 1,000 disappeared after the Chinese armed military deadly cracked down in all parts of Tibet.  Now, a group of respected Chinese lawyers have publicized research that demonstrates that the Tibetan riots and protests of last March steamed from legitimate grievances caused by failed government policies in Tibet--- not His Holiness the Dalia Lama.

{The Tibet Post International - Monday, 19th May 2008}-The stateman 19th May 2008. A Tibetan friend mischievously told me: "The Chinese are lucky, Buddha is more compassionate than Allah". This was not meant as judgment on a particular religion, but rather to illustrate that the way Buddhists react to a situation is quite different from the adepts of other credos.
