DHARAMSHALA, October 12: Tibetans must not lose hope on Middle Way Approach (MWA) and the Chinese government must not doubt the approach, said Professor Ming Xia, professor of Political Science at City University of New York (CUNY).

Prof. Xia who was in Dharamshala for the 5-50 Forum organized by the Tibetan government in exile, was speaking at a public event organized jointly by six Dharamshala-based Tibetan associations at Yongling school here.

“Through this platform I want to urge my fellow Chinese that this approach is beneficial for both Tibet and China. I am sure of a fruitful result if Tibetans don’t lose hope and China disperse their doubt,” the professor said at the talk.

He also extended his confidence over a ‘change’ in the outlook and policies of China towards the ethnic minorities by citing example of abolishing of ‘One Child Policy’ and the growing number of Chinese following Buddhism.

“Nothing is permanent. So the repressive policies in Tibet will change,” he said in Chinese, which was translated by Chinese Liaison Officer with Office of Tibet Washington DC, Kunga Tashi.

The professor said he first met His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 2008 and since have met the Tibetan leader over 15 times. Through these meetings and discussions with the Dalai Lama he said that he has developed a ‘complete faith’ in the non-violence approach adopted by the Tibetan spiritual leader.

However, as a consequence he has not been to China for over nine years and has been often confronted and warned by Chinese secret service to not support the approach. He said, “I may have left my motherland but I know that I have chosen the right path devised by His Holiness. It is only beneficial and I have no regret in my choice.”

Since the professor has grown up studying the ‘Chinese version’ of Tibetan history and global affairs, he said that Chinese government has always curbed the awareness on the actual goals of MWA amongst the general public and since it was proposed by the Dalai Lama, the authorities apply more restriction on it.

Calling it the best approach for both China and Tibet, he said he was not the only Chinese scholar, inside and outside China, who supports MWA approach.

The Midle Way Approach was proposed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 1974 as the policy of moving forward in resolving the Tibet issue. In June 1998, the approach was adopted democratically by the Tibetan parliament in exile as the official policy of the exile Tibetan administration.
