Do not trust China, says young Tibetan scholars

October 29, 2009

SHIMLA – Young Tibetans held a meeting here to discuss independence of Tibet and ways to achieve it.

At least 30 Tibetan scholars in-exile assembled for the two-day meet regarding the Mc Mohan Line dividing India, Tibet and China. These scholars standing for freedom of Tibet said they believed that they were re-visiting the independence of Tibet through the Simla agreement signed in 1914.

After the meeting they said that India should not trust China after Beijing condemned the visit of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to Arunachal Pradesh.

“It is utmost important that a group of young Tibetan scholar intellectuals have decided to gather in Shimla which is also a very significant place in history of Indian and Tibet together. Especially of the Mac Mohan line agreement that we have agreed upon due to which Arunachal has been recognised by Tibet as part of India. So when Chinese has condemned India not only of his holiness’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh but also of your Prime minister’s visiting , that also shows Chinese deep intention on their policy of India.,” said Karma, Tibetan scholar.

One of the scholars also claimed the meeting was held to reinforce the importance of 1914 Shimla Agreement.

“The importance of revisiting Shimla with the independence of Tibet is directly related to Arunachal Pradesh, where India claims Arunachal Pradesh as a part of India and here we reinforce the importance of 1914 Shimla Agreement, which was signed between Tibet and British Empire and today India inherits that power,” said Tenzin Tsundue, Tibetan scholar and activist.
