(MENAFN-IANS) By Tenzin Choezom
The conflict between China and Tibet is still an ongoing issue that has not been able to come to a just and justified conclusion. China’s illegal occupation of Tibet has led to a long struggle that sums up more than six decades of struggle seen mainly from the Tibetan side while there have always been clashes between the two countries if we retrace them in their respective histories.
The difference however is that China is sticking to its claims to always own Tibet when it is clear from the country’s history that Tibet was once a free country and the Chinese also tried to conquer it in the past but failed to do so. with success.
The sovereignty of Tibet has been denied by the Chinese Communist government and the brutality since the takeover has remained and has doubled over the years. China’s destruction of Tibetan religious institutions, monasteries, convents, relics, settlements, land and environment in Tibet is unimaginable.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has flourished since the occupation of Tibet, and the growth of the economy and social life due to Tibet’s land and resources is beyond measure. Tibetans returning to Tibet have witnessed the anger that China has shown against Tibet since the 1950s and the oppression that still persists in Tibet. China, however, has devised various plans and imposed several plans to attack Tibet and uproot its core authenticity by focusing on removing its ethnicity once and for all. The lack of the right to practice one’s religion and language in Tibet is evident and this would mean a gradual decline in the number of Tibetans who actually know the religion and language of Tibet. This in turn would contribute to the sinization of Tibet.
China’s plans to sinise Tibet have been underway for decades. The prohibition of the basic rights of Tibetans in Tibet, the endless oppression and the strict surveillance that is increasingly reinforced are all means by which Tibetans are prevented from staying in touch with their Tibetan ethnic roots. China’s imposition of the use of the Chinese language as the sole medium of instruction in Tibetan schools is a direct attack on the Tibetan language.
The new regulation which was adopted at the third session of the 11th Tibetan Region People’s Congress on January 11, 2020, to impose their China-centric lifestyle on the innocent people of Tibet. China’s constant strengthening of surveillance in Tibet is visible through its excessive arrests for baseless motives and from projects such as building border villages. This particular regulation would also help China mobilize more informants for the Chinese government. and maintain their hold over the Tibetan regions. China’s ever-growing control over Tibet is designed to gain full power over Tibetans, but Tibetans’ connection and loyalty to their own true ethnicity is what bothers China and what they wish to uproot.
China has also claimed in the past how its hold over Tibet is for the good of the land since the Communist Party aims to liberate the land of Tibet and its people. The higher authorities have always made statements about how Tibetans have the full right to live on their own terms and have expressed their wish for the coexistence of Tibetans and Chinese. The regulations adopted on January 11, 2020 are clear proof of how the Chinese government has never meant for the growth and peace of Tibet as systematic discrimination is openly announced and then imposed.
Even though China and its government officials made such senseless statements to give Tibetans the space to maintain their culture and way of life, the truth was far from what had been promised. Tibetans have always been victims of discrimination and have never had access to basic rights. It is against humanity that people of any nation do not have their basic rights or the right to life, but it has been going on for years with the Tibetans. The further imposition of China’s dominant ethnic culture on the submissive people of Tibet violates international human rights standard. The regulations further aim to brainwash Tibetan children from preschool age and stem Chinese ideological propaganda in them, which means there will be more invasion of privacy and lack of rights in them. Tibetan regions.
The way the CCP treats Tibetans has always been extreme torture and inhumanity. This issue, however, has never received the attention it deserves so that Tibetans can have a fair stand against the ruthless domination of China. The Tibetan struggle has been going on for years and still continues vigorously. There have been developments over the years, but the necessary international support is still lacking and has not reached a strong point. It is high time for other nations and international organizations that are witnessing such inhumanity and to call China’s fault. China, being the powerful country that it has always easily sought from negotiations and especially accusations.
Tibetans have struggled for years and will always live in such dire circumstances if they do not receive immediate support and help. Countries like China that use outright violence for their own gain should be held accountable for their crimes, and submissives should be freed from this grief and anguish.
