    Tibetan Sets Himself on Fire in New Delhi

    [​IMG]
    Indian policemen try to extinguish fire on Sherab Tsedor, a Tibetan resident of New Delhi, outside the Chinese Embassy, New Delhi, November 4, 2011.

    A Tibetan exile set himself on fire outside the Chinese embassy in New Delhi on Friday, the latest in a series of self-immolation protests against China.

    Police in the Indian capital overpowered 25-year-old Sherab TseDor and extinguished the flames. He was hospitalized with minor burns.

    Before his protest, TseDor issued a statement calling for an end to a Chinese crackdown in Tibet. He called on India and other nations to support the Tibetan people's bid for freedom from China.

    In southwest China, at least 11 ethnic Tibetans have set themselves on fire in recent months, demanding greater religious and cultural freedom and the return of the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama. At least six of the protesters, including Buddhist nuns, have died.

    China claims that they are doing a lot for the Tibetans.

    I wonder if the Dalai Lama has done more harm to the Tibetan cause than actually serve it. Tibet was independent but he accepted the Chinese rule and asked for autonomy that was never going to come. Today his people are left in the lurch. Even the international community is not going to do anything. Wonder if he should have fled to India in the first place and stuck to Tibet and fought the Chinese aggression?

    I really don't know what to make of this Tibetan issue. The leadership itself comes across as weak and not wanting to be free. Worse, what will happen after the current Dalai Lama? I am more than sure that the Chinese are going to install a puppet and make the world accept. Tibet will be lost forever.

    I partly agree with you on that. HH shouldn't have just settled for autonomy. In the spirit of peace and harmony, He agreed for the sake of Tibetan people's safety and the safety of Buddha Dharma's prevalence so that the Reds stop killing. But now that has failed. However, We could do little to save Tibet because Nehru had not even left a guarantee to save our own nation by demilitarization plans; forget helping Tibet.

    Chinese cannot install ANYONE. They can continue their "Party-approved" bullshit who's a nobody in Tibetan concepts. One cannot "appoint" the Dalai Lama; it is the incarnate that is re-born in a different body. So whatever crap the Red losers have to appoint, they'd only be getting one more Red into COT's regional governance.

    Typical words of a coward Communist. That's what Communists are. Killing is not bravery; ability to value others' lives and others concepts is bravery. But then, since everything is doctored and controlled including the first world infrastructure you boast of, I won't blame you to not be able to empathize. The video of that kid getting run over and people not doing anything explains a lot about what you've transformed into; hollow zombies of the Red theory.

    If Dalai Lama would not have fled, there would be no Dalai Lama left.

    China does not take kindly to any dissension.

    Liu and Wie are examples where China because of international glare are being harsh but not 'vaporising' the dissenters!

    In the days when Dalai Lama fled, it was very natural for people vanishing into thin air!

    36 guests on this thread? Looks like chicoms are tracking :D

    Tshering,
    The Tibetans have not been saved from anything. The ones who fled live as refugees. Their culture will die away in due course. The ones left behind are being brutalized and their land is getting "Hanized". Tibet has its "Mahatma", sadly it does not have a Bhagat Singh or a Netaji.

    Dalai Lama had tried to co-exist with Chinese for approx 9 years. The Tibetans even revolted in 1959 - and there was a brutal Chinese response. It was only in 1959 that Dalai Lama fled. It was the last resort.

    There is an interesting analogy - India was to China in Tibet in early 50's was Pakistan is to USA in Afghanistan now - 90 % of food supply for Chinese soldiers in Lhasa passed through india .(Into Tibet - Thomas Laird)
