Dharamsala, July 22: Even after the ‘alleged’ murder and forcible cremation of the revered Tibetan teacher Tulku Tenzin Delek last week, the Chinese authorities continue to employ a series of visible actions to “further add injury to the insult” with his followers and kin bearing the brunt. kins

The sister of the deceased Tibetan Lama and her daughter have still not been released despite appeals both from within Tibet and those in exile, including one from the incumbent Tibetan prime minister Lobsang Sangay yesterday. Sangay was speaking at a book launch yesterday in the premises of the Central Tibetan Administration.

The Chinese authorities have not made the charges on their arbitrary detention public. However, Tibetans believe the arrest to be related to sharing information surrounding the death of the Philanthropist lama.

Sources from within Tibet say that the Chinese authorities have further “hurt the sentiments of Tibetan people and disrespected the last rite proceedings of the Tulku” when a group of disciples carrying the remains of the departed soul were stopped midway in Jagsampa (Luding) county and the ashes confiscated later that night. The group of disciples were on their way to Othok village, Tulku’s home town in Nyachuka County, Sichuan province.

Tulku’s cousin Geshe Jamyang Nyima, who resides in India, told Radio Free Asia, "At that time, the Chinese authorities came to them in the night and forced them to give back the remains. They even threatened to throw the ashes into the local river in Luding”.

Tulku’s death has led to upheavals in several areas like Chengdu and Nyachuka resulting in grave injuries to many Tibetans who were shot upon and beaten by Chinese security personals last week.
The Tulku died on July 12, under suspicious circumstances while serving a life sentence in Chinese prison. His family who were summoned for a hurried cremation later claimed murder through ‘poisoning’ after seeing the condition of the dead body.
