Tibetan Cabinet Secretary-in-exile expresses dismay over self-immolations

Dharamsala, Fri, 13 Jan 2012 ANI

Dharamsala, Jan 13 (ANI): The Cabinet Secretary of the Tibetan government-in-exile, Migyur Dorjee has said that the Central Tibetan Administration was dismayed by the recent spate of self-immolations by Tibetans protesting against the Chinese government.alking to reporters here on Thursday, Dorjee said that while the incidents were unfortunate, the motivation of those who committed the act was very strong.

 

"It is very unfortunate. We are very sad. However, we definitely feel these people are quite determined, and I believe their motivation is very good. Their motivation is not to harm anyone, (and is) totally based on the teachings by His Holiness (the Dalai Lama), that our struggle is based on truth, justice, and the means to achieve that is through non violence," Dorjee added

 

He said that while some people may interpret the act of self-immolation as one of violence, the key difference was that the people who did so caused no harm to others.

 

Dorjee said that it was desperation at being denied their basic political rights that was spurring Tibetans towards such an extreme step.

 

"People are quite desperate, because as everyone would know, as human beings, we love our lives so much that self-sacrificing is quite an extreme thing. But, people see hopelessness of the Chinese rule in Tibet, whereby they are denied every right of a human being," he said.

 

On January 8, Lama Soehpa, a monk, set himself on fire in Tibet's Dhalang County. Protesting Tibetans obstructed the police when they came to remove the body.

 

Earlier, in Ngaba County, two Tibetans, Tenyi and Tsultrim, set fire to themselves and faced the region's Kirti Monastery with folded palms. Security personnel forcibly took them away. Tenyi died the same day, and Tsultrim on the following night. (ANI)
