Tibet In India's Web

India portraying itself a secular and peace
loving country to the world is a mocking style
and a mask drawn to shield her monstrous
activities architected by the “RAW”. Though the
foreign companies are pushing the economy of
India to bring her in league with the superpowers
but its hegemonic nature and imperialistic
attitude having disparaging niche  towards the
South Asia and other neighbouring countries in
the surroundings has always become victim to the
tautness atmosphere created by her. India is
following the footprints of Israel having
militarized adventurism in West Asia, is in
consonance with the historic juxtaposition of one
and the other to incline towards the U.S. to
implement its hegemonic will in South Asia.
Bangladesh and Pakistan are mostly at receiving
end of India’s launching of multi projects on the
rivers which flow through her to turn their land
in to desert apart from erection of the fences on
border of both the countries. Sri Lankan and
Tamils both have suffered at the hands of India,
experiencing its intriguing imperialism, as when
Tamil Tigers were being trained & equipped by
RAW, simultaneously the government of India was
showing her muscles to Sri Lanka to purchase
weapons from not other than India and also while
leaving the choice of armament  to her. In 1980s
dispatch of Indian Peace Keeping Force to Sri
Lanka was a brutal act parallel to the
sovereignty and integrity of an independent
state. The small nations like Nepal, Maldives and
Bhutan are forced to act in a manner like a
servant to the master who is totally disregardful
to the rights of people. Indian military presence
and ensuing human rights abuses in Kashmir is
well known to the world where she is bent upon
turning the heaven of Kashmir in to cemetery.
Where India’s regional hegemony is dressed in
conspiring knavery and dual diplomacy, Tibet
remains sandwiched in the hypocritical fashion
designed by the same. India came off badly when
in 1962 picked up a fight and was bitten severely
by the Dragon thus accepting the claim of China over Tibet.


India after having been defeated morally,
materially and psychologically by China in 1962
has extended open arms for America to face the
dilemma of Tibet to prick the dragon and within
her own ability kangarooed Dalai Lama to house in
Dharamsala since 1959. The Dalai Lama’s flee to
India and formulation of “Government-In-Exile”
has brought India in the forefront to face the
noose of China. India now is home to
approximately 120,000 Tibetans, the world’s
largest community outside of Tibet. The “RAW” has
since long been trying to crown Dalai Lama as the
head of state instead of simply a spiritual
leader who remains contended with his sayings.
That is very important for China to hold Tibet as
its part, if lost then will break the fabrics of
nationhood. There is a fear that if Tibet gets
independence then Uighurs and Taiwan will want
independence, as says the expert on China’s
affairs, Adam Segal. “RAW” is exerting its all
out efforts to train the rebellion groups of
Tibetan refugees to use them against China to
heal its wounds of lost war. The training
pertains to the small arms fire, physical fitness
and the guerilla operations. The men are given
money as an incentive to join the force to
prepare them for the future operations to be
launched in Tibet, exactly on the lines of Mukti
Bahnis used in East Pakistan. The most favourable
side is that Tibetan refugees are being motivated
& brain washed by the “RAW” to carry the wrath
and venom against China who booted them out of
their homeland. Moreover being son of the soil
the force of Tibetan refugees can sustain the
rigours of worst weather conditions and hostile
terrain unlike India which withered away due to
the extreme weather conditions and the unfriendly
mountains when conducted operations against China
in 1962. Kangarooing old Dalai Lama of 75 years
age for so many years is a burden being felt by
India and now seriously looking forward for his
death and searching for the successor who takes
the interests of India as supreme.


Since its birth Indian xenophobia within and
without its territories is an aiguilles. India
has succeeded in attracting the United States and
the West to exert pressure on China while keeping
Tibetans in exile in front to foment its dual
policy. During the Cold War in the 1950s and
1960s, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency
covertly had funded and armed Tibetan guerilla
forces to fight against communist China. But even
during this period also Washington never
supported Tibet openly thus moving cautiously to
avoid jumping in to the ambers ignited by India.
In 1971, CIA stopped funding the guerilla forces
as the aid was being provided through India which
complicated the policy environment. After seeing
the whole affair a flop and the deprivation of
monetary benefits from the U.S., India launched a
new strategy of pushing the old hag like Dalai
Lama to visit and make speeches in the West to
fetch some fortune. This strategic initiative
went successful due to the addresses made by
Dalai Lama before the Human Rights Forums in
Washington as well as in the European Parliament
in Strasbourg. But India got annoyed when
publicly Dalai Lama accepted something less than
independence for Tibet. Calling for genuine
autonomy for Tibet to rest within the framework
of China having the domain of Foreign Affairs and
the Defense but the domestic affairs should be
dealt by the same old ladder of Dalai Lamas which
was called the “Middle Way Approach”. Though the
middle way approach was applauded by all the
spheres even by Hollywood actors like Richard
Gere but India could not tolerate this issue be
ever resolved that too, for carrying the baby
kangaroo of Tibet in its sack for so many years
without injuring the Dragon. May it be South
Asia, Northeast Asia or even Tibet, Indian
xenophobia is a serpent always ready to gobble the peace.


The first Tibetan uprising of 1959 resulted in
the flight of the Dalai Lama and about 80,000
Tibetans. In 1978, when Deng Xioping came in to
power in China, he came up with a new idea of
resolving the issue of Tibet. Besides reaching
out to Dalai Lama in exile in India, the Chinese
authorities also initiated a more conciliatory
ethnic and economic development policy. Tibetans
were encouraged to revitalize their culture and
religion. Infrastructure was developed to help
Tibet grow. But India always stood against all
these measures whenever these were put to
practice by the Chinese authorities while playing
the card of Tibetan refugees. To beat back the
Indian propaganda and Tibetan shield, a programme
of rapid economic development was adopted which
included induction of non-Tibetans, mostly Han
Chinese, in to Tibet. This Beijing hopes, will
form a new generation which will be sound enough
to face the religious and ethnic exploitation
spread by India generally painting a ghostly
picture of Tibet to the world. Tibetan refugees,
mostly the youth are indulging in the business of
narcotics, drug trafficking and arms selling.
They were purposely kept illiterate, so to write
on the clean slate of their mental canvass as
wished by the “RAW” to make them robots to take
the revenge of Indian defeat. But this fracas
with China has now brought India on the brim of a
ditch and ready to make her fall in to it when
Tibetan refugees force will turn the direction of
their guns provided by the “RAW”.


The political catharsis prevails in Tibet. The
question of political status is imbedded in an
atmosphere of uncertainty. The name Tibet is
acceptable to China only to satisfy the Western
block and Central areas, the area which now is
called Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR). This area
was directly ruled by the Lhasa government when
China occupied in 1950. But Tibetan exiles on
behest of India are demanding a Greater Tibet
which includes political Tibet in modern era and
also an ethnic Tibetan areas east of TAR, most of
which Tibet had lost in the eighteenth century.
These areas, earlier known as Amdo and Kham, are
now spread among parts of Chinese provinces of
Sichuan, Yunnan and Gansu. In March 2008,
anti-government protests which had started in
Lhasa soon spread among the ethnic Tibetan
provinces. The Chinese are fully aware that Dalai
Lama has been in India ever since China occupied
Tibet. The Chinese regard him as an Indian
puppet. They claim the latest unrest in Tibet was
on the instigation of “RAW” fully supported and
funded by the government of India.


India is in the process of performing ablution
with the blood of Tibetan refugees which are
being trained by the “RAW” to move them in to the
altar. But who knows the flames of hate go in
which direction! The region counts on 30 major
insurgent outfits coupled with the numerous
smaller ones. This has resulted in the
longstanding, massive and extremely oppressive
presence of the Indian military indulging in the
large scale human rights abuses. The history of
India is replete with the atrocities and brutal
activities which has always created turbulence in
the aura of peace. China is going to hold Tibet
at any cost and the card of Tibetan refugees to
be used by India will remain stuck in the fingers
of “RAW” as in the index of its monogram.
