Himachal Pradesh,Diplomacy,Politics,Religion, Tue, 27 Mar 2012 IANS

Dharamsala, March 27 (IANS) A day after a Tibetan protester attempted self-immolation in New Delhi, the Tibetan administration Tuesday asked the community to refrain from any 'drastric action'.


'The CTA (Central Tibetan Administration) is deeply concerned over the tragic incident,' it said in a statement.



'We would like to reiterate that as Buddhists, life is precious... Once again (we) remind Tibetans to refrain from drastic actions.'



It appealed to all Tibetans and Tibetan supporters to 'express solidarity through activities which are peaceful, legal and dignified'.



The CTA Monday clarified that the Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama was 'neither encouraging self-immolation in Tibet nor advocating expulsion of Han Chinese from Tibet.



'We deplore the usual blame tactics utilised by the Chinese government,' it said.



According to CTA, 17 people have reportedly killed themselves this year in Tibet to protest 'Beijing's repressive policies and demand the return of the Dalai Lama to his homeland'.



India is home to around 100,000 Tibetans and the Tibetan government-in-exile which is not recognised by any country.
