New Delhi, 23 November, 2011: “There is a new movement for the freedom of basic rights world over, particularly in the Arab countries. Tibetan people are struggling for the similar rights in Tibet too and the increasing number of self immolation by young Tibetans in Tibet is a response to the Chinese repression in Tibet. No other movement has ever matched the upsurge of the Tibetan people. People of the world and especially India need to come up against the gross violations of human rights in Tibet,” said Shri Yashwant Sinha, Convener of the All Party Indian Parliamentary Forum for Tibet (APIPFT). He was speaking at the meeting of APIPFT members and members of Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile (TPiE) at Hotel Claridges in New Delhi on 22 November.

Besides contingent of 21 TPiE members headed by the Speaker and the Deputy Speaker, Shri Mohan Singh (SP), Shri Jayant Chaudhary (RLD), Mr. Thokchom Meinya (Congress), Mr. Joseph Toppo (AGP), Mr. Hassan Khan (INDP Alliance with NC), Mr. P.D. Rai (SDF), Mr. Thomas A. Sangma (NCP) along with Delhi based Representative of H.H the Dalai Lama and Indian and foreign scholars were present in the meeting.

Shri Sinha in his speech said, under the ever tightening repressive policy of China in Tibet, Tibetans are left with no option but to protest Chinese Government in a desperate act of self immolation. The world community must stand up to the facts of what is going on there in Tibet.

“We Indians have not lived up to the expectation of the Tibetan people” he acknowledged and said “it is still not late to act now.”
