Dharamsala, Mar 29 (ANI) -- Tibetans
living-in-exile presented a play here on alleged
Chinese atrocities to mark 50 years of Chinese rule in Tibet.

Through street performance, Tibetans portrayed
the alleged atrocities being inflicted by Chinese
troops in Lhasa, the capital of the roof the world.

"This is just to show the world that how Chinese
are brutally torturing Tibetans in Tibet, still
people are dying. Many people are lost. We don’t
know yet where they are?," said Sonam, a Tibetan activist.

"Tibetans are living like a hell inside Tibet.
The Chinese Government has been brutally
torturing Tibetans. Cultural genocide is
happening," said Tenzin Tsondu, another Tibetan activist.

Meanwhile, Tibetan exiles staged a candlelight
protest to mark the fifty years of Chinese oppression on their homeland.

Tibetans, including, Buddhist monks and nuns,
holding banners and flags, took part in the vigil
and expressed solidarity with people who they say
are victims of atrocities by the Chinese authorities in the Tibet.

The Tibetan exiles mark March 28 with protests
and demonstration, as they believe since that day
in 1959 they have suffered unimaginable
religious, cultural and political repression at
the hand of the Chinese authorities.

However, China marks March 28 as its inaugural
Serfs’ Emancipation Day, marking the date in 1959
when Chinese troops took direct control of the
government in Lhasa after being rushed there to quell an uprising. (ANI)
