DHARAMSHALA, May 13: Six Tibetans have been detained by Chinese authorities in Qinghai for protesting against demolition of their houses last week.

The Chinese authorities launched a campaign to demolish iron sheeted houses of Tibetans living along the shore of Qinghai Lake saying those houses were “illegal”, built without official permission and that it spoils the scenic beauty of the area.

Four were identified as Lubum Gyal, his two sons Tsewang Gyal and Rinchen Dorjee; and his son-in-law Yeshe Dorjee. They were detained on May 5 as the demolition of houses began in Gonpo Dong in Tanak. They are currently being held in Chabcha County detention Center.

A day later, Chinese authorities summoned Gyablung village leader Tashi Gyal and Yangchuk Gyal to the detention center and were also detained.

The six were accused of objecting the demolition drive by Chinese officials of temporary dwellings set up in Chabcha (in Chinese, Gonghe) County in the Tsolho (Hainan) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture.

Tibetan homes in townships of Trilnak, Tanak, Chang Shey and Rigmon were all affected by this demolition campaign.

Last week, Chinese authorities demolished several houses belonging to Tibetans in Benshul Jeyna village in Mangra County in Tsolho Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai province, leaving many homeless.

In 2013, an unidentified Tibetan woman set herself on fire in Kyegudo in Amdo (Ch: Qinghai) Province to protest against the demolition of her home. A powerful earthquake hit Kyegudo on 14 April 2010 resulting many Tibetan deaths and destruction of houses and properties.

Following the quake rebuilding Kyegudo has been slow and filled with official nepotism and delay. Chinese authorities demolished over a thousand of Tibetan houses in Kyegudo stating that their occupants are not officially registered.
