DHARAMSHALA, Dec. 12: Hundreds of evicted nuns from the Larung Gar Buddhist learning centre have been reportedly been put up in desolate camps in Kham Kardze.

The far off camps near Ahkyab village in Kardze prefecture, Sichuan province serve as temporary lodgings for more than 800 nuns who are forcefully put in the Chinese controlled camps, according to RFA.

A source cited by the same agency mentioned, “The nuns began moving into this new facility on Dec. 1 and have been put into 700 metal-roofed houses, with one to two nuns living in each two-storey house. This is a temporary camp for the nuns expelled from Larung Gar who came originally from Kardze.”

According to the estimates, the demolition work that began in July has destroyed 1,500 structures and dwellings on the hillock belonging to over 4,600 monks and nuns who have been forcefully evicted under the pretext of renovation and public safety measures.

Earlier last week (Dec. 5), the Tibetan PM Lobsang Sangay, head of the Tibetan exile government, appealed the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to take immediate action to save the Buddhist centre founded by the late Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok.

“High Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad al Hussein has made it a priority to visit Tibet at the time of his appointment. We urge him to visit Tibet to assess the human rights situation in Tibet and especially in Larung Gar and Yarchen Gar. We also request him to raise this issue during his opening statement at the upcoming 34th UN Human Rights Council Session in Geneva in March next year,” Sangay said at a press conference.

Sources say that the demolition drive is aimed at cutting the center’s strength to 5,000 from 10,000 by 2017.
