Kathmandu, April 7: Some 700 Tibetan men in Kathmandu shaved off their heads in solidarity with the Tibetan Freedom Movement worldwide and to mourn over Tibetan victims of the Chinese crackdown since March 10.

The mass head shaving campaign at Bouda-Jorpati Tibetan Community Center this morning was organized by the Nepal Tibet Solidarity Committee (NTSC). The campaign was in a symbol of mourning and to express solidarity with fellow Tibetans inside Tibet amid Chinese violent crackdown.

Many children also took part in the head shaving peaceful solidarity campaign.

“I have never shaved my head, but today I am shaving because I am deeply concerned about my fellow country men inside Tibet,” one of the participants Lobsang said.

“I pray for all those who have died in Tibet and I really hope that this year we would achieve something from all the sacrifices we have made” he said.

Tibetans numbering several hundreds have been gathering at the Center for mass prayers since past two weeks.

The mass prayer, which ended today, was attended by over 1500 Tibetans.

The mass campaign programs have been temporarily halted until April 13 due to Constituent Assembly election in Nepal on April 10.

On Monday, the NTSC requested all individual Tibetans to stop their protest in Nepal to allow a smooth and undisturbed election in the country.

“We did not organize any of the demonstrations in Nepal; these are all individual Tibetans who are carrying out the demonstrations voluntarily,” Tibetan MP Doma Tsomo told Phayul.

Earlier this morning, the French Ambassador to Nepal and a small delegation of the French Parliament visited the Tibetan Community Center to extend their solidarity. One of the parliamentarians, who briefly addressed the Tibetan gathering, assured French support for the Tibetan cause.

Tibetan Welfare Officer Mr. Trinley Gyatso handed over a Tibetan flag to the French delegation who promised to fly Tibetan flags along with French flag in different cities of France.
