CTA rejects China’s allegations, Appeals Tibetans not to self-immolate
Phayul[Thursday, May 30, 2013 06:43]
DHARAMSHALA, May 30: The Dharamshala based Central Tibetan Administration has once again categorically rejected China’s allegations of “outside forces” instigating the ongoing wave of self-immolation protests inside Tibet.

The Kashag (Cabinet) in a statement Wednesday said China’s recent claims, made in a documentary on self-immolation protests, aired on China Central Television on May 16, “don’t have a strand of truth.”

“In order to prove their accusations that the self-immolations are being instigated by outside forces, the documentary carries randomly edited and isolated portions of speeches made by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Sikyong Dr Lobsang Sangay and Kasur Kirti Rinpoche to serve the Chinese government’s own specific designs,” the statement reads.

“Such despicable acts are not only unlawful and cross all limits of human morality but also humiliates developed societies around the world, regarding them as blind and ignorant to facts.”

China’s official news agency Xinhua, in an earlier report had said that the documentary was “aimed at helping the international community to understand the truth of the situation” and made after “in-depth research and interviews.”

Days after the documentary was aired, on May 27, Tenzin Sherab, 31, a Tibetan nomad became the 118th Tibetan living under China’s rule to set himself on fire since 2009. Tibetan self-immolators have demanded freedom in Tibet and the return of Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama from exile.

In the statement, the exile Tibetan administration again expressed its readiness for a thorough investigation into the allegations made by Beijing.

“The Central Tibetan Administration’s sincere appeal to all Tibetans to refrain from drastic actions is well documented and in public knowledge,” the Kashag said in its statement.

“Well-known international groups and individuals have also acknowledged and stand witness to our efforts.”

The CTA also revealed recent divinations made by the Chief state oracle of Tibet, Nechung, who had predicted that an end to the wave of self-immolations would be for the better.

“Through this official statement, we appeal to our Tibetan brothers and sisters living inside and outside Tibet to refrain from carrying out drastic actions including self-immolations,” the CTA said.
