THE COLD WAR IN ASIA – TIBETAN RESISTANCE FROM 1950s TO 2017

The Cold War in Asia – Tibetan Resistance From 1950s To 2017. Communism is the root cause of ‘The Cold War in Asia’. Tibet and India’s attempts to befriend Communist China utterly failed.

Introduction of Communism to mainland China on October 01, 1949 is the reason for ‘The Cold War in Asia’. Communism introduced dictatorial regime with no transparency and public accountability. On May 23, 1951, Tibet and Communist China signed Seventeen-Point Plan or 17-Point Agreement to ensure meaningful Tibetan Autonomy under Chinese Communist Party Governance. Further, India, and Communist China signed Panchsheel Agreement on April 29, 1954 to formalize international relations on Five-Principles of Peaceful Coexistence. Adherence to the Five-Principles of Peaceful Coexistence would indeed let China and India live together side by side with ‘Brotherly Love’ to declare “Hindi Chini Bhai Bhai.”

Tibetan Resistance began in 1950s and continues in 2017 because of unwillingness of Communist Party of China to implement the 17-Point Plan as agreed. Republic of India adheres to principles of Democracy, Socialism, and Secularism. While Chinese people may embrace Buddhism, their system of Communist Party Governance with no transparency and public accountability will keep Tibetan Resistance alive. Buddhism may encourage and promote tourism but it cannot be used as the basis for formulating international relations by Secular Republic of India.

“India should develop a pilgrimage for Chinese people who follow Buddhism. These people can come to places like Bodh Gaya and can come closer to India emotionally as well,” he said.

Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama on Monday said India and China cannot defeat each other and both the countries will have to live together as neighbours. The spirit of “Hindi-Chini Bhai Bhai” is the only way forward, he stressed. “In the current border situation, neither India nor China can defeat the other. Both countries are militarily powerful,” the Dalai Lama said. Both the countries will have to live together as neighbours, he said.

“There may be some incidents of cross-border firing. It does not matter,” he said. The Dalai Lama was responding to questions by reporters at an event here.

He said, “In 1951, a 17-point agreement was signed between the Local Government of Tibet and People’s Republic of China for peaceful liberation of Tibet. Today China is changing and has become a country with the highest Buddhist population. They (India and China) should go back to ‘Hindi Chini Bhai Bhai’ again.”

It is a Communist government but Buddhism is widely accepted, he said.

“Earlier, the Dalai Lama used to be the head of spiritual and political movements in Tibet, but in 2011, I totally retired from politics. It was a way of democratizing the institutions, because it had some feudal elements in it,” said the 14th Dalai Lama.

He suggested that India should “develop pilgrimage for Chinese” people who are followers of Buddhism.

“We must understand that the followers of Buddhism in China are actually following the line of Indian Buddhism that came from Nalanda (Indian seat of learning) and Sanskrit,” said the spiritual leader.

“India should develop a pilgrimage for Chinese people who follow Buddhism. These people can come to places like Bodh Gaya and can come closer to India emotionally as well,” he said.

India and China have been locked in a standoff in the Doklam area since June 16 after Chinese troops began constructing a road near the Bhutan trijunction.

Commenting on the definition of secularism in the Indian context, the Dalai Lama said, “Respect for all religions and even the non-believers too. This is the definition of secularism in Indian context.”

“During the French Revolution and the Bolshevik movement, people opposed the exploitation by their kings and queens. Then religious institutions were supporting the feudal lords; hence the revolution also went against them. That’s why in the western context, secularism has become a word expressing disrespect to religion,” he said.

“Even an Indian communist leader had once told me that as a communist party worker, he does not believe in God. But for the people who he works for, they do believe in God and it is his duty to respect their feelings. I welcome such a mature approach,” the Dalai Lama said.
