Who had done nothing but studied to learnt, contemplated and practiced - peace, compassion, loving kindness since the age of 5 when he was brought to Lhasa Tibet and enthroned as Tibet's God King Tibet. Whose only mistake was followed the ancient Buddhist philosophy of non-violence, and tried to negotiate with enemy to benefit for both sides and avoided an eminent bloodshed. He was being attacked for being reason to the words that we always mention and wish for. The words like - Peace, Love, compassion, right, equality, Liberty, human dignity, sharing, reasoning, trust, understanding, negotiation, no to war, universal responsibility and we are all one human family. He never fought for his fame, thrown, or his wellbeing.

People's Republic of China more so the Chinese Communist Party is accountable to above mentioned illegal crimes must pay both for physical and psychological costs. I would like to request the media, American supporters and international government and people to support the Tibetans to set a new global paradigm for peace, freedom and friendship by telling China, in a united and concerted voice and action that we do not neither trust Chinese Government's action, nor approve China's so called one China Policy nor  approve Chinese gross violation of human rights practiced in Tibet. Tell the Chinese to be a good and respectful super power, they must give Tibet back to Tibetans without any re-condition and delay otherwise China will face global boycott of Chinese products, trade and economy.
