German Human Rights Committee calls on China to immediately stop repression in Tibet

DHARAMSHALA, Mar. 26: In the month coinciding with the 60th Tibetan Uprising day which commemorates the death and sacrifice of thousands of Tibetans in 1959 under Chinese occupation, the German Committee on Human Rights and Humanitarian Aid has jointly called on the Chinese government to halt the repression of Tibetan people and resume talks with Tibetan leadership for a political resolution.

“The Committee calls on the Chinese Government to immediately stop the repression of the Tibetan people and resume dialogue with the legitimate representatives of the Tibetans,” the official statement that was released on Monday read.

“Today, the culture, language, identity and religion of the Tibetans are threatened from existence. The peaceful resistance of the Tibetan people to the deprivation of rights by Chinese authorities deserves more support,” it further stated.

The joint statement also supported the ‘Middle Way Approach’ championed by the exiled Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan exile government’s official stance to seek genuine autonomy within the Chinese framework.

It said, “The secular and spiritual leadership of the Tibetans has repeatedly chosen the path of peace, for many decades of extensive oppression. We see the third way of the Dalai Lama, with broad autonomy of Tibet within China, as an opportunity to avoid possible conflicts in the future.”

Kai Müller, Executive Director of the International Campaign for Tibet in Germany, welcomed the statement by the Human Rights Committee. He said, “It is extremely important that the Human Rights Committee raised the situation in Tibet and continues to address systematic human rights violations.

“Tibet is a totalitarian police state in which dissent is relentlessly persecuted and the population massively indoctrinated. Under these harsh conditions, the Tibetans’ non-violent protest and their search for a peaceful solution deserve all the more support. The Joint Statement of the Human Rights Committee is therefore a powerful and important sign of this support.”

The declaration by the Committee for Human Rights and Humanitarian Aid of the German Bundestag was supported by political parties such as CDU/CSU, SPD, FDP and Greens, and opposed by the Leftist Party.
