China occupying Tibet and committing genocide there for more than six decades, announced on Thursday that it would ‘reward’ anyone who provide prior information of a self-immolation protest in future and anyone who correctly informs on the “black hands” behind the four self-immolation protests that already took place recently. The former will get 50,000 Yuan and the latter, 200,000 Yuan. Nearly 60 Tibetans, many of them Buddhist monks and nuns, have set themselves on fire in China since February 2009, to protest against Beijing’s rule in Tibet, AFP said on Thursday. The Tibetans essentially protest the demographic, cultural and structural genocide of their nation, committed by China through colonisation and military occupation of their historical territory.
“Anyone who reports and informs the legal authorities on the people who plan, incite to carry out, control and lure people to commit self-immolation will be awarded 50, 000 Yuan” said an online notice of occupying China.
“Anyone who correctly informs on the black hands behind the four self-immolation incidents that have already happened will be awarded 200, 000 Yuan”, the notice further said. Notices have also been publicly posted in the Gannan Prefecture of the Gansu Province.
The Dalai Lama in exile in India condemned the self-immolation protests in the past, but the prevailing realities have made him to pay tribute to the courage of the protestors in recent times.
The ‘black hands’ as well as the blood stained hands are very much in the genocidal culture of the Establishment in Beijing, commented an Eezham Tamil political analyst in Colombo.
China in Tibet, US-led NATO in Afghanistan, India and Pakistan in Kashmir, India in its Northeast and tribal belt, and Sri Lanka in the country of Eezham Tamils are facets of the same phenomenon in the region, against which the civil society in the region and independent humanity of the world should rise up collectively, the analyst said.
Demographic changes, if necessary, could take place voluntarily when a sovereign people on their own think that they need human resources for their development. Look at how the West receives non-Western peoples. But how could the humanity tolerate military conquest, occupation, forceful colonisation, demographic changes, annihilation of a nation and genocide as means of achieving a global order, the analyst asked responding to China’s stand on Tibet and on the country of Eezham Tamils.
Eezham Tamils must have realised the effects of the visible as well as ‘invisible genocide’ in the last three years: from physical extermination of the people and nation to erosion into the physical and psychological health of the remaining.
The lingering agony of the people of Tibet, after more than 60 years of Chinese occupation, is a lesson to Eezham Tamils on the futility of hanging around the very culprits for solutions.
The situation of the Tibetans and Eezham Tamils has many parallels. The culprits are the same. But note, how their leadership articulators in the clutches of Washington and New Delhi are unable to come together in waging a collective, universal struggle, the Eezham Tamil analyst said.
A universal struggle should be collectively waged not only by the affected nations of people but also by the peoples inside these powers for their own liberation from the Establishments that take humanity for granted. Unless the peoples of the affected nations identify the noble cause and associate them actively with a collective universal struggle of moral and psychological strength to eradicate the culprits of humanity, their psychological health deteriorating into narrow self-immolation protests could not be prevented, the Eezham Tamil analyst further said.
The axis of Establishments operating in South Asia from the Himalayas to the island in the south has to be broken at some point to set the benefit for all. Tibet is a larger nation of more extensive experience compared to the nation of Ezham Tamils. It should be able to extend its hands to Eezham Tamils in the edification of the struggle. The struggle coupled with the ‘UN-promised self-determination’ of the Kashmiris will appeal to even the tiny Maldives that is facing the brunt of the power machinations today, the analyst commented.
