Sempakarpo, to me, it seems your very approach to this whole issue is flawed.
1. First of all, leaving aside our main interest of seeking a solution to the issue of Tibet, we in exile, want a meaningful democracy- honesty, transparency and accountability from our govt.
2. Our interest is not to safeguard the Sikyong. If Sikyong was really being insulted, belittled or attacked by a hostile party, of course that is an affront to all Tibetans and the necessary action should be taken to show our displeasure. Clearly this was not the case.
3. It is an honor and a privilege to be serving as the Sikyong, especially at this juncture. It is also a great opportunity for him to learn, grow as a leader.
If the Sikyong is smart he will wise up and rise to the occasion and be a true leader and an inspiration.
So please next time think twice before you talk about any sacrifices. Nobody forced you.

“The key perpetrator, Kunsang, was ordered to to pay Rs. 30,000 to a local monastery to appease local deities upset with the incident.”

Seems Tenzingang Village is ruled by the village idiots. Why not donate that money to the Educational system, assuming there are schools in this town.
Why give money to the monasteries who are pimping deities and other superstitious nonsense to keep the people groveling all their lives?
BAH!!

Assanga la,

Actually it is completely fair to talk of Sikyong LS la's failed responsibility.

Maybe your confuseion is because the abuse happened late during SR's time. But the CTA's RESPONSE happened under LS, and LS also did not change the CTA order after, and it is LS who is currently almost one year late on responding to Chitue Lentsok's demand for action. That is most shocking of all!

Why, if Sikyong la is so concerned with Phomodranyam? Was this just false promises to get elected? I hope not, but now it is up to Sikong la to show he is not a liar or hipocrite. Om mani padme hum.

Hello wds1

As far as Tenzingang is concerned , the bug stopped with Samdong Rinpoche. It is unfair to make it an issue with Sikyong.

RFA fiasco, Delete of Phayul Messages Forum, restriction on VOA Kunleng direction question taking etc. took place with the with Sikyong/s coming. This is a relevant criticism.

Jan 23 2013 07:48 PM

The girl must going through so much pain at such young age to see her own mother being dragged naked on the streets, what kind people live in Tenzingang settlement, are they living in a stone age,the girl's father must pay for child support. This is total discrimination against a women and single mother. All the money should be giving to the little girl.How come Tibetan authorities are so bias, did they ever thing there is child involved in this case, and this girl is our future generations. Wake up Tibetan authorities.

Subject: The buck stops w/ the Sikyong
Jan 23 2013 03:08 AM

The Sikyong is the elected leader of the CTA. Therefore the buck stops with him. Other officials bear responsibilities too but since he's the top elected official, he bears more responsibility than officials who report to him. If he didn't want people to criticize him when he did something they didn't like, he should not have run for the office. Leadership is a heavy mantle, especially in a democracy. People have the right to criticize their leaders either for what they did or what they failed to do.

Assanga, I understand what you`re saying about the òld thinkers`. but some things are just plain ``black` and `white`. period. evil and mean people simply have to be resisted by all. we have a discriminating mind to differentiate between some traditional values and some horrible act that is universally unacceptable.

Subject: Sikyong had a chance, lost it
Jan 22 2013 03:56 AM

Assanga la, you as "why now?" Well I might have an answer... Sikyong la has been given more than enough time to respond to our Parliament's resolution and he has not responded. If it were any sooner, you'd say "give him a chance". Now he had a chance. If we care about our democratic system, Sikyong can't ignore Parliament.

Subject: Why target the Sikyong all the time?
Jan 20 2013 05:40 PM

Agree that the fairness of the trial and mode of punishment looks questionable, ridiculous and gender biased. However the ground reality is like this: In the absence of clear official guidelines from CTA to handle suchcases" within" by the Settlement Shigo, the influence of the community leadership plays a pivotal role. If the Shigo opts to send the case to local police, he will be accused by the community leadership for disrespecting "one's own
government"( CTA). The Shigo therefore has 2 options: either face their opposition and recourse to Indian law or cooperate with the local leadership.

Now who are these community leaders? especially in remote neglected areas like Tenzingang? They are invariably -Please allow to use the term" old thinkers". I warn you- unless you cooperate with them, they are dangerous people. And it is democracy.Why blame the Sikyong all the time?

I wholeheartedly agree and share the concerns raised by Political Investigative report via this report with regard to TGiE's less than enthusiastic approach to the Tenzingang incident. Although TGiE operates in host country, once a policy(in this laws passed by Tibetan Parliament in Exile v/s Phomodranyam)is passed as a statutes, if not implemented by the Executive branch, doesn't mean anything other than a simple symbolism.
