The exiled Tibetan Women Association in Dharmsala has come out heavy on China and lashed Beijing for denying Tibetan freedom and culture to flourish. While celebrating its 37th-anniversary, the exiled women association criticized China for refusing to give Tibetans their freedom and suppress the Tibetan culture under atrocities.
Speaking to ANI, one of the women from the association said the occasion is celebrated to embark and honor those who sacrificed their lives for Tibet’s freedom. “We are commemorating the occasion by honoring those brave martyrs who sacrificed their lives for Tibet”, she added.
The Tibetans and the Chinese have been in a tussle for more than seven decades now. In 1950, when China occupied Tibet and later annexed it, the Tibetan civilians went into violent clashes with Chinese forces 1959. It was during that time, his holiness, the supreme leader of Tibetans Dalai Lama fled to India and resided in Dharamshala, who then later established a government-in-exile in India with 10,000 Tibetans.
