Tawang Is Part Of Tibet And Tibet Is Part Of China, So Tawang Is Part Of China: Chinese Scholar

Tawang Is Part Of Tibet And Tibet Is Part Of China, So Tawang Is Part Of China according to a claim made by a Chinese Scholar. Drawing out historical relations between Tibet’s capital Lhasa and Tawang, the scholar, Lian Xiangmin, Director of Institute of Contemporary Tibetan Studies at the China Tibetology Research Centre (CTRC), asserted Tawang as a part of Tibet and subsequently that of China.

“One of the three major temples of Tibet is Zhaibang (Drepung monastery near Lhasa), and Tawang was a subsidiary of Drepung and in history, Tawang’s monks went to Drepung to study sutras. Tawang under Drepung also made contributions to the local government. So Tawang is part of Tibet and Tibet is part of China, so Tawang is part of China. So this is not much of a question.” said Liam Xiangmin, an influential official think-tank that advises the government on its Tibet policy.

This statement comes as a result of India’s assertion towards allowing the Dalai Lama’s upcoming visit to the border sensitive regions of India, Tawang. While China strongly warned the Indian government against the Dalai Lama’s upcoming visit to the region schedule in the beginning of April, India has ignored the Chinese tantrums over the border issues.

“In a rare interaction with journalists along with other CTRC scholars on Thursday, Lian asserted China’s claims on Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh, citing its historical links with Tibet, and said the Dalai Lama’s visit would hurt relations.” reported the India Today.

Lian said that during the Dalai Lama’s last visit to the region in 2009 claimed that Tawang is a part of India. The Dalai Lama’s visit to the disputed regions did and would undermine the relations between India and China. Besides the scholar also said that China is very much likely to determine its own successor to the 14th Dalai Lama according to the report.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama who is recognized around the world as one of the most inspiring leaders in the world for his efforts to bring out peace, China accuses him of being a separatist. He was felicitated with Noble Peace Prize in 1989 which is the most prestigious recognition given for his works from numerous awards he has been honored with around the world.

    The Chinese ALWAYS have an incredible sense of CONVOLUTED logic. They display such senses everywhere. For example, they simply drew nine dashes on a map of South China sea and NOW claim that the area WITHIN the nine dashes is it’s THEIR territory.

    How beautiful!!

    History never remained the same. Bangladesh, India and Pakistan are all one nation and one ethnic group. Tibet, Bhutan and all Himalayan people are one nation and one ethnic group at least during the Tsenpo dynasty. Kashmir was completely independent nation. But all these facts were changed based upon different circumstances, border demarcation and political issue. Today, Tawang is part of India, Bhutan is completely independent country and Tibet is controversial land. The original India became controversial and divided territories. So, no one can claim this and that, it is all depend on power and money that decide the fate of nation and individual. After all, Tawang people have the right to decide their future and which nationality they want to adopt.

    There is no confusion to whom Tawang belongs, it’s a territory of India after the occupation of Tibet by CCP, there were deals between India and china undeclared, secretly unknown to tibet. That these two country accepting the situation of benefit: china want India to accept Tibet is part of china and India wants Tawang as India’s territory which is geographically merge and china wants the rest of it excluding TAR. So china is trying to aggressive towards India in this part and J&K because there want India to dominate in psychologically creating random issues. The problem for China is holiness because he got millions followers around the world that frighten over burst china.
