Open letter to Tibetans from a German woman
Phayul[Thursday, November 30, 2017 18:20]
Dear Tibetan brothers and sisters,

Evelin Ptassek at a Tibet Rally/personal photo sent with the letter
Evelin Ptassek at a Tibet Rally/personal photo sent with the letter
I am writing to all of you, who have recently taken to the streets to protest against your Kashag and your President. Let me be frank, I find this absolutely disgraceful!

You go and demonstrate against your own formally elected government in exile? Because they have made a decision on one employee? Because they let him go? Really??? What’s wrong with you guys?

If you want to demonstrate you should go in front of the Embassy of the country that is directly responsible for you losing your land!

I might not be able to read and understand Tibetan language but to see those photos and postings on Facebook and know from Tibetans what is being written on hundreds of “WeChat” groups worldwide I am simply disgusted. And I lose faith in the Tibetan Community.

But it’s not about me. It’s not even about you. It’s about the future of the great land of Tibet.

Do you even grasp the idea of democracy, something His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama introduced to your culture? Are you even aware what difficult stance your Kashag has in the international political world, as a government in exile? Do you understand how you harm not only the Tibetan international community but also Tibetans INSIDE Tibet?

I wonder what powers drive you to such actions. And I hope its only sheer EGO. That is curable. Because your actions serves only those powers who want to silence and to get rid of you as a people. Get that.

I don’t have to be a Tibetan, I don’t have to be a Buddhist, to say to you what you are doing is utterly wrong. To be a simple human being is enough. No need to go to university to understand. Just get the bigger picture.

With your actions you do not serve the Tibetan Community, you do not serve your fellow Tibetans in Tibet. You create anger and slitting. That is so wrong in times where humanity should come together as ONE, rather than split into groups and more groups. Who are YOU serving?

I hope that everyone directly and indirectly involved in this unintelligent action will read my comment.

Please stop this NOW, unite in peace and compassion. As ONE people – the Tibetan people in this world experiencing genocide. As ONE humanity.

My heart goes out to the people of Tibet, in Tibet, who are in constant suffering and fear under their occupants.

Truly, you should be ashamed of yourself and I hope you will find a way to your heart. Your heart will guide. I hope you remember who you are and who to serve.

Peace and Love to you all. Free Tibet !


Evelin Ptassek
