Dharamshala, May 2 (ANI) -- Hundreds of Tibetans,
including Buddhist monks and nuns, who are facing
some hiccups in getting their registration
certificate, gathered here to attend a workshop
to seek solution to their problems.

The exiled Tibetans in India face many troubles
and tribulations to get a registration
certificate (RC) from the foreigners" registration officer.

To make the process convenient for them, the
Himachal Pradesh police has launched a campaign
under the community-policing scheme ‘’self help for peace."

"We have launched this campaign under the
community policing scheme called "Shite Rogio,"
which means ‘’self help for peace." We don't want
any Tibetan who has arrived in India in 2009
without any RC or valid document till December
21, 2009," said Shubhra Tiwari, Additional Superintendent of Police, Kangra.

Tibetans who attended the workshop, organized by
the local administration, were quite relieved with this initiative.

"Tibetan people who don't have their RC are here.
Some of the police officials are also here to
meet us and to solve the problem of RC," said Rinchen, a Tibetan youth.

Tibetans have found a new home in India and want
to preserve their unique religion, culture and
identity that was endangered in their own
homeland as a result of Chinese occupation of Tibet. (ANI)
