Dharamsala, March 14: Amidst reports of massive unrests across Tibet, the exiled Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama has expressed deep concern over the latest situation developing in Tibet.

“I am deeply concerned over the situation that has been developing in Tibet following peaceful protests in many parts of Tibet, including Lhasa, in recent days,” the Dalai Lama said amidst reports of massive unrests across Tibet.

Thousands of Tibetans have been staging massive protest demonstrations across Tibet since Monday demanding Tibetan independence. The demonstrators have also called for the unconditional return of the Dalai Lama to Tibet.

Widespread protests are also held by Tibetans worldwide as they commemorated 49th anniversary of Tibetan National Uprising on Monday against China’s occupation of their once independent country. A major return march by Tibetans to reach Tibet from India to challenge China’s rule over Tibet has been stopped by Indian Government on Thursday.

The Dalai Lama said, “These protests are a manifestation of the deep-rooted resentment of the Tibetan people under the present governance.”

The Dalai Lama said: “As I have always said, unity and stability under brute force is at best a temporary solution. It is unrealistic to expect unity and stability under such a rule and would therefore not be conducive to finding a peaceful and lasting solution.”

In the statement the Tibetan leader has appealed the Chinese leadership to address Tibetan people’s resentment through dialogue and not to use force, and has called on fellow Tibetans not to resort to violence.

“I therefore appeal to the Chinese leadership to stop using force and address the long-simmering resentment of the Tibetan people through dialogue with the Tibetan people. I also urge my fellow Tibetans not to resort to violence,” the Dalai Lama said.

The Dalai Lama, revered by many Tibetans as their undisputed leader, has been in exile since 1959 following an abortive Tibetan Uprising in Lhasa against China’s occupation of their country.
