Dharamshala: The Kashag of the Central Tibetan Administration has
appealed to Tibetans to avoid resorting to violent approach during the
2008 Beijing Olympic torch relay in India, in April.

The guideline issued by the Kashag on 29 February 2008 said:
"Resorting to violent means by the Tibetans, which are against the law
and cause embarrassment to the people and the government of India,
must not be allowed."

"His Holiness the Dalai Lama has supported that China, as the worlds
most populous nation should be given the right to host the Olympic
Games," noted Kashags guideline.

"His Holiness has regularly stated that the Olympic Games in China
must be held successfully without any hindrance, since the event is
being long awaited by the Chinese with great pride and happiness."
