Below is an article published by The Thaindian News :

Tibetan Prime Minister in-exile Samdhong Rinpoche has said that the
Tibetans issue shall be resolved through the non-violent Gandhian principles.

Rinpoche said this while paying tributes to Mahatma Gandhi on the eve
of his 137th birth anniversary in Dharamsala, the seat of the Tibetan
government in-exile, on Wednesday [1 October 2008].

Peace and non-violence is the only way to resolve any problem and
Tibet is also to be resolved from that, said Rinpoche.

Rinpoche also sent out a message of peace and non-violence to the
Tibetans across the world.

The Tibetan "freedom struggle" against China is influenced by Mahatma
Gandhi''s message of non-violence and uprightness.

Gandhi''s decades-long non-violent movement has inspired leaders
across the world including exiled Tibetan leader Dalai Lama, South
Africa''s Nelson Mandela and US civil rights leader Martin Luther
King, who led movements against injustice and suppression in their
respective countries.

Gandhi, who several times resorted to "fast unto death" to extol
Hindus and Muslims to stop rioting, has been the symbol of India''s
secularism and a strong advocate against the deep rooted casteist
discrimination in Hindu society.

Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869 in Porbandar. A lawyer by
profession, he struggled for India ''s independence from British rule
through peaceful non-violent ways.
