New report on Tibet highlights self-immolations, reincarnation of Dalai Lama


IANS New Delhi
From incidents of self-immolations, human rights, cultural genocide to the history of Tibets status and reincarnation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama -- a new report released on Tuesday highlights the contemporary and prevalent issues faced by Tibet.
The report titled 'Tibet Was Never A Part Of China But The Middle Way Approach Remains a Viable Solution' was launched by the Department of Information and International Relations (DIIR) of Central Tibetan Administration (CTA).
The report, organized into nine chapters, covers self-immolations, human rights, cultural genocide, the history of Tibet's status, the environment, urbanization, economic development, the reincarnation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and the Middle Way Policy.
"The chapters aim to be comprehensive but digestible. Given that each topic could be a book of its own, the report serves as an overview of the most pressing issues in Tibet for those involved with or interested in the Tibetan cause," DIIR's Information Secretary Dhardon Sharling said during the launch of the report.
Published in Tibetan, English and Chinese languages, the report was unveiled by Prof. Anand Kumar and Dr. Lobsang Sangay, President, Central Tibetan Administration here.
"For Tibetans, information is a precious commodity. Severe restrictions on expression accompanied by a relentless disinformation campaign engender facts, knowledge and truth to become priceless. This has long been the case with Tibet. This report marks the CTA's current contribution to this effort," said CTA President Dr Lobsang Sangay.
