DHARAMSHALA, April 25: The President of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) Dr. Lobsang Sangay said the UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief has questioned China on the whereabouts of the 10th Panchen Lama while the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child has kept the case open. Sangay was speaking today at the official function marking the 30th birthday of the 11th Panchen Lama Gedhun Choekyi Nyima.

The gathering celebrated the 30th birthday of the 11th Panchen Lama Gedhun Choekyi Nyima while commemorating the legacy of the 10th Panchen Lama Lobsang Trinley Lhundrub Chokyi Gyaltsen.

Shri Ajay Singh, the president of the Indo-Tibetan Friendship Association (ITFA), who attended the event as the Chief Guest, said it is strange how the world can’t seem to do anything. “The Tibetans are appealing everywhere but there seems to be no impact.

“Even though they are strong and powerful, I hope that sense will dawn upon them to take the sensible step of releasing the 11th Panchen Lama, by showing kindness and compassion.”

Highlighting the indelible legacy of the 10th Panchen Lama, CTA President proclaimed the 70,000 characters’ report, written and submitted by the 10th Panchen Lama as the most compelling evidence of China’s atrocities in Tibet.

Sangay said it was written despite the imminent risk, and that he was subsequently imprisoned and subjected to solitary confinement.

“The existence of a vibrant Tibetan language and culture, pride and unity in Tibet today owes much to the efforts of the 10th Panchen Lama,” Sangay added.

The Department of Information and International Relations (DIIR) organized an exhibition at the Tibet Museum on the 10th and the 11th Panchen Lama while an updated edition of the book “Panchen Lama’s Lineage” was launched by the chief guest.

CTA also screened a video of Tibetans around the world wishing the Panchen Lama on his 30th birthday.

Sangay called on the international community to join the Tibetans in demanding the immediate release of the world’s youngest political prisoner, so that he could practice Buddhism and carry on the legacy the previous reincarnation.

The major Tibetan political NGOs in exile marked the occasion with activities aimed at raising awareness among the Indian public of the case.

The Tibetan Women’s Association (TWA) flagged off its peace march across India. The group walking from Dharamshala to Chandigarh took off with close to 100 participants with more than a dozen men among them.

TWA will convene press conferences at Anantpur Sahib, Una and Chandigarh during the 14-day walk.

The Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC) and Students for a Free Tibet (SFT) jointly carried out a bike rally with 30 bikes to symbolize the 30th birthday of the 11th Panchen Lama. The rally reached New Delhi today where the occasion was marked officially.
