India’s Position On Tibet Is A Self-Serving Betrayal Of The Facts

Mr Gopal Baglay and his Indian Government colleagues betraying Tibet, history, the facts and international law.

The announcement today by the Government of India, which acknowledges Tibetan territory as being ‘part of China’, is an endorsement of colonization. An appeasement to China’s regime that’s particularly strange, given India’s struggle for nationhood against a colonial power! Clearly the requirements of realpolitik, and heightened sensitivity regarding India’s border with Chinese occupied Tibet, have taken precedence over such sickening hypocrisy.

Meanwhile officials within the Indian External Affairs Ministry, such as Mr Gopal Baglay, have blinded themselves to the truth that China’s bogus claims over Tibet are a cynical fabrication. In a scramble to posture concessions to China they consciously ignore the reality that such assertions lack any credibility within international law. While seemingly oblivious to the fact that Tibet has been rightly defined as being a land under an illegal occupation.

In light of this position adopted by Indian authorities we must conclude; given it accepts that territorial legitimacy and sovereignty is defined by military invasion, occupation and colonization, (a process which established Chinese rule in Tibet from 1950 on-wards) that prior to 1947 India was ‘part of Britain’. Presumably on this basis Mr Baglay would agree with the observation that any protests against the occupying Raj, took place not upon Indian soil, but British territory!

India’s Authorities Sink To New Low In Appeasing China’s Terrorist Regime

The decision of India’s government to cancel  the visa issued to World Uyghur Congress  leader Dolkun Isa to visit Dharamsala to attend a conference and meet the Dalai Lama reveals a worrying level of appeasement towards the Chinese regime. That the Indian authorities accept as credible China’s claims that this activist for human rights and freedom is a terrorist makes a mockery of all normal understanding and intelligence. Especially when viewed against the genocidal terrorism which China’s tyrannical government wages against the culture and national identity of Uyghurs in East Turkestan, Tibetans in occupied Tibet, Mongolians, and Manchurians. All of whom, along with the people of China itself, are subjected to a state engineered machinery of terror that violently denies individual freedoms and rights.

What makes such claims even more ridiculous is that the Indian Foreign Ministry has announced that the decision was reached in view of Dolkun Isa’s name being present on Interpol’s so-called ‘Red List’. That hardly constitutes conclusive  irreproachable evidence, particularly as Interpol operates without any meaningful transparency, is unaccountable and operates like a private police club. Moreover it has been increasingly exploited and manipulated by its police membership of various states, including China, to harass and intimidate political dissidents. So much an impartial finding!

Dolkun Isa has released a statement on the decision, which can be read here: HERE

Image:TibetanYouthCongress

Day 30 for the Tibetan hunger strikers, the campaign to press the United Nations for what is long overdue action on Tibet, remains as determined as ever. The courageous protest is attracting international support and attention, including anonymous hacktivists #Op_Tibet and #teamriddler who have been targeting Chinese government websites to show solidarity with the Tibetan Youth Congress. Reports on Twitter today show that another Chinese site is being targeted, many thanks to @AnonymousTibet for sharing news of this latest attack.
