The Team of Red Lantern Analytica (RLA) had a meeting with Deputy Speaker Ms. Dolma Tsering Teykhang of the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile in Delhi. She has served as the President of the 9th and 10th Utsang Central Executive Committee and is currently an advisor to the committee. Ms. Teykhang was previously elected to the 13th, 14th, 15th, and 16th Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile from Utsang province and has been a member of the Standing Committee and many other parliamentary committees numerous times. RLA team members Abhishek Ranjan, Shubham Singh and Urmila Shakh met with Ms. Teykhang and expressed RLA’s support and solidarity to the Tibetan cause.
Red Lantern Analytica discussed with Ms. Dolma, about functionality of Tibetan Parliament in Exile, to strengthen the support for Tibet and 8th World Parliamentarians’ Convention on Tibet. RLA wholeheartedly expressed its support to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibet, and the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), which works tirelessly to resolve the Tibet question, and to maintain Tibetan culture and its distinctive Buddhist traditions. RLA recognises the Tibetan cause, to be a righteous one, and demands the resettlement of the exiled Tibetan refugee community in a Free Tibet.
RLA also condemns the illegal occupation of Tibet by Chinese Communist Party forces enabled by the PLA. Frequently, Tibetans are imprisoned following dubious trials, and so called Chinese authorities do not disclose why or where they have been detained. Frequently, family members are unaware that their loved ones have been incarcerated, and those who discover this information are not authorised to visit the jail. Tibetans are subjected to torture and abuse as the degrading of Tibetan political detainees continues in Chinese-occupied Tibet.
Isolated from the rest of the world, time and again it has been proven that Tibetan people regularly face torture and execution by the PLA. We urge the CCP government of China to fully respect and execute the obligations of the United Nations Convention against Torture.
The CCP’s obstruction of Tibet’s monastic system, which has historically acted as an educational institution for Buddhist teachings in Tibetan culture and language, is condemnable. Previously, various Tibetan monasteries had a role in organising schools for common Tibetans to learn the Tibetan script. The current CCP crackdown on monasteries and limitations on the mobility of Tibet’s religious practitioners have made it difficult for the general Tibetan to learn the Tibetan language and culture.
RLA urges the free world to remain vocal for the Tibetan cause and look forward to working in solidarity with organisations such as the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), in any possible capacity to extend the possibility of a free and sovereign Tibet in the future.
