DHARAMSHALA, October 2: Tibetan government in exile (Central Tibetan Administration) today commemorated 144th birth anniversary of Mahatma Ghandhi, the apostle of peace and non violence.

In the exile headquarters of Dharamshala Tibetan Prime Minister Dr. Lobsang Sangay lit a butter lamp in front of a portrait of the Indian father of the nation as senior officials of the Tibetan government offered Khatag (Traditional Tibetan well-wishing scarf) on Ghandhi's portrait at a modest official ceremony at the Kashag premise.

The Tibetan PM also expressed his administration's gratitude to the government and people of India for their support to the Tibetan people.

Calling the day “auspicious”, Sangay said the his administration was also observing the International Day of Non-violence, as announced by the United Nations in 2007, coinciding with the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi.

Sangay further expressed his hope to resolve the Tibet issue through non-violence and Middle Way.

He said the Tibetan movement is a model of non violent struggle around the world. “Tibetans also will succeed through non-violence and recently His Holiness the Dalai Lama shared a very inspiring news that through Middle Way, Tibet issue will be resolved peacefully and he will live very very long. We hope more than 113 years and he will see the day when the Tibet issue will be resolved. This is a very important news for Tibetans inside and outside Tibet.

“So, in that sense on one hand everybody should feel very inspired, on the other hand we all should work towards our goal to resolve the issue of Tibet through dialogue because we believe in and we adhere to non-violence.”

Later today, regional chapters of Tibetan Youth Congress and Tibetan Women’s Association and Students for a Free Tibet, India will screen the movie ‘Gandhi’.
