Fate of Buddhist Nuns in Tibet

Tibet is occupied by China and it is hell bent on destroying Tibet culture. One aspect is the defilement of Nuns who form a part of Tibet Buddhism.

The Boot of the Chinese

I am constrained to bring to the notice of the world the atrocities being committed by the Chinese in Tibet. After the Chinese invaded Tibet in 1950, the entire country was occupied and the Chinese tried their best to break the will of the Tibetan people. They started by hitting at their religion. They planned to murder the Dalai Lama, but he escaped to India. The Dali Lama had been called to attend a live concert in the Chinese army camp. This was a ruse, the main aim being to capture and kill him. That was in 1959 and much water has flown down the river since then.

Many Tibetans have immolated themselves in Tibet and abroad to draw attention to the systematic destruction of Tibetan religion and culture. One aspect of Tibetan religion which is Buddhism is the women nuns. These women never marry and spend time in prayer to Lord Buddha. The Chinese tried to destroy this aspect of religion, thinking that Nuns must be defiled so that the Tibetan people are frightened. They have forcibly entered the monasteries and carried away the Nuns.

Many Buddhist nuns have been systematically raped and some forced to marry Chinese soldiers. Many Nuns have been killed when they resisted Chinese soldiers. It’s a terrible time. Only a few days back Tibetan immolated himself to protest against Chinese atrocities. In fact over the years at least 250 men and women have immolated them to protest the occupation of Tibet by China. The world must wake up.

China’s occupation of Tibet is a nightmare for the Tibet people. I think the culprit was Nehru who did not intervene , way back in 1950 when the Red army was marching into Tibet. Time can’t come back and now there appears little hope for the people of Tibet.
