Supporting the Tibetan cause

July 6, 2009

Times of India 2 Jul 2009

MYSORE: The Indo-Tibetan Friendship Society will host the World Conscience
Day on Monday to commemorate the 74th birthday of Tibetan spiritual leader
Dalai Lama.

The Society is hosting the event on behalf of Tibetan Support Group,
southern region. Society president Gp Capt H Rajagopal (rtd) told reporters
that the aim of the event is to create awareness about the Tibetan issues.
It is imperative since it involves India's security issues too, he stated,
pointing at Tibet that acted as a buffer zone between India and China.

BJP MLC Thontadarya said that India should take up the Tibetan issue and
help them get freedom from the Chinese occupation. As the international
community is not taking up the issue and it is for the people to lead a
movement. India has failed to take up the Tibetan issues at the UN
effectively, he said.

The programme at the Jaganmohan Palace auditorium includes talks by
columnist S Gurumurthy, and Swami Muktidananda.
