Tibetan NGOs condemn Chinese attack on Indian Army
Asks international community to boycott Chinese products
Dharamshala: In a joint statement released by Tibetan NGOs, it is said that the Tibetan community stands with India at this hour. The statement was issued in a joint press conference organised by Tibetan Youth Congress, National Democratic Party of Tibet, Students for a free Tibet and Tibetan women association in McLeodganj North India on Friday. The members of these organisations carry posters saying, Tibet’s independence- India’s security, boycott made in China, keep calm and boycott China and we strongly condemn China’s aggression on Indian territory.
The organisations said that they condemn the attack of China on Indian soldiers at Indo -Tibetan border in Ladakh Galvan Valley in which 20 Indian soldiers have been martyred, including a commanding Officer. This Chinese invasion has proved to be the deadliest in India sovereignty over a period of 45 years. They said that the Tibetan organisations respect and honour the soldiers who lost their lives and express the heartfelt tribute to their families.
The organisations said, “Now the governments and leaders from all over the world are expected to take strong action against China and their occupation policy by uniting with India for the illegal invasion of Indian Territory by Chinese army.”
They said that the liberation of Tibet is the real safety of Indian borders, as it was before the invasion in Tibet by the people's liberation army in 1949.
The organisations said, “As we stand in solidarity with India, we invite the Government of India and the international community to undertake this task, a statement should be issued by the international community immediately against The Chinese military invasion of Indian Territory, so that it can be strongly condemned.” It said that India and world governments should recognize Tibet as a separate historically independent country. Tibet is under illegal occupation of China which is a threat to international peace. The international community should respond economically to China by joining the Indian grass root movement to boycott the products made in china.
