Tibetans condemn Nepal's secret cremation of Nyedon

DHARAMSHALA, September 24: Tibetans exiles today protested against Nepal government’s secret cremation of Karma Nyedon Gyatso, a differently abled monk who set himself on fire near Boudhanath stupa in the Nepalese capital Kathmandu on August 6.

The protestors put up an empty white cloth and a clay pot at the protest site to represent the Nepalese government’s failure to release the body of Gyatso and return his ashes to the Tibetan community.

The protest action was jointly organized by Dharamshala regional chapters of Tibetan Women’s Association, Tibetan Youth Congress and Students for a Free Tibet, India.

The organizers also offered prayers and butter lamp to mark the 49th day of his demise.

“Nepal cannot forget the civilizational relations with Tibet coming under the Chinese government's political pressure today. Our gratitude for asylum cannot condone Nepal's ongoing repression of Tibetan refugees living there” said Tenzin Tsundue of Regional Tibetan Youth Congress.

Earlier in March, the Nepalese authorities secretly cremated Drupchen Tsering despite repeated appeals from Tibetans and their supporters to release his body.

“This is the second time that the Nepalese government has committed such a heinous and cowardly act. Denying Karma Nyedon Gyatso his final Buddhist cremation rites is utterly saddening and outrageous,” said Tenzin Jigdal, Program Director of Students for a Free Tibet, India. “Nepal still has an opportunity to show the world that it respects human rights and religious freedom thereby upholding its moral and principal values. The Nepalese government should stop kowtowing to China.”

Although no official confirmation was made on Gyatso's secret cremation Radio Free Asia earlier reported that Gyatso was secretly cremated on September 2 at Pyre No. 5 at Pashupatinath Aryaghat crematorium in Kathmandu.

In 2010, Nepal disrupted Tibetan elections by confiscating ballot boxes containing thousands of ballots just an hour before the polls were due to be closed.

Nepal, which is home to some 20,000 Tibetans, has accommodated Tibetan exiles for decades, but has come under increasing pressure from China, a major donor for the impoverished country, to crack down on the political protests.
