‘Tibetans demand justified’

SHIMOGA: Secretary of the National Education Society S.V. Thimmaiah said
here on Thursday that it was wrong to consider Tibet as an integral part
of China and it never remained so.

Inaugurating the one-day seminar on “Olympics for world peace” organised
jointly by the Department of Political Science and Public Administration
of the Sahyadri Arts and Commerce College and the World Peace Academy,
he said that with the passage of time China sought to thrust its rule
over Tibet. “As such, there is a justification in the demand being
voiced by Tibetans for independence,” he said.

He said that Tibetans were striving for their individual entity since long.

Mr. Thimmaiah said if Tibetans were opposing the Beijing Olympics it was
perhaps because of their appreciation of its importance.

He, however, said that Tibetans’ movement for independence was as much
significant as the Olympics.
