China’s Panchen Lama: ‘Anti-China Forces’ Hype Tibet For Political Gain

Tibet’s Beijing-appointed Panchen Lama in a speech this month slammed what he called foreign interference in Tibetan affairs, saying that “anti-China forces” care nothing for the Tibetan people and only raise issues of religious freedom in order to hinder China’s development.

Speaking on March 11 at a meeting of the Chinese People’s Consultative Conference, Panchen Gyaltsen (Chinese, Gyaincain) Norbu, a member of the CPCC Standing Committee, said that “Foreign anti-China forces have been hyping Tibet issues and religious issues in China, and transforming the topics into political bargaining chips.”

“As long as a person has sanity and an objective stance, he would see the truth very clearly,’ Norbu said in remarks quoted by China’s official Global Times, which noted that the U.S. State Department in a statement the day before had said that China “shouldn’t interfere with the succession process of [exiled Tibetan spiritual leader] the Dalai Lama.”

The comments by the Panchen Gyaltsen Norbu, who is widely regarded by Tibetans as a puppet of Beijing, drew a sharp rebuke this week from Tenzin Tsetan, an analyst at the Dharamsala, India-based Tibet Policy Institute.

“The Tibet Policy and Support Act signed into law by the U.S. government imposes sanctions on Chinese Communist Party officials if they interfere with the reincarnation process of Tibetan religious leaders,” Tsetan said, referring to legislation passed in the U.S. Congress in December and signed into law by U.S. President Donald Trump.

“I think the Chinese government is manipulating [this issue] by using their own appointed Panchen Lama to assert their [own] claims,” Tsetan added.

The Tibet Policy and Support Act 2020 establishes as U.S. policy that the selection of Tibetan religious leaders, including future successors to exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, is a decision to be made only by Tibetans, free from Chinese government interference.

Concerns over the advancing age of the Dalai Lama, now 85, have renewed uncertainties in recent years over his possible successor after he dies, with Beijing claiming the right to name his successor and the Dalai Lama himself saying that any future Dalai Lama will be born outside of China.

‘Can’t really judge’

In supporting China’s policies, Gyaltsen Norbu may be speaking under coercion, though, says London-based Tibet expert Robbie Barnett, formerly director of the Modern Tibetan Studies program at Columbia University.

“We can’t really judge anyone, especially not a Tibetan in China, by what they say publicly. Chinese officials have always praised the Communist Party, and it’s difficult to know whether those words of appreciation are genuine or not,” Barnett said.

“It may also be that these officials are being coerced into praising the Communist Party,” he said.

“Since Chinese President Xi Jinping assumed power [in 2013], the crackdown and policies aimed at destroying Tibetan religion, culture, and identity have intensified more than ever,” said Karma Choeying—spokesperson for the Dharamsala, India-based Tibetan government in exile, the Central Tibetan Administration.

“Tibetans inside Tibet have and will continue to resist China’s widespread brutality, and Tibetans in exile must always remain vigilant and be aware of the [Chinese Communist Party’s] intentions,” Choeying said.

Tibetans remain bitter about Chinese intervention in the selection 25 years ago of the current 11th Panchen Lama, whose predecessor died in 1989.

The recognition in 1995 by exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama of six-year-old Gedhun Choekyi Nyima as the Panchen Lama angered Chinese authorities, who three days later took the boy and his family into custody and then installed Gyaltsen Norbu as their own candidate in his place.

The Panchen Lama installed by Beijing remains unpopular with Tibetans both in exile and at home.

How You Identify Fake News or Messages on Social Media 

Beware of Fake News and Fake Messages on Social Media

Always follow websites or social media platforms of traditional media outlets whether newspapers, magazines,Television News Channels or Radio Stations and authentic online only media outlets.They still maintain journalism excellence and stress on reportorial talent.On the other hand, fake news websites run by people with non journalism background and promote their own ideology with fake news and disinformations and obviously conspiracy theories.

But unfortunately mainstream media also manipulates news to establish their story angle.There were various instances when News papers and TV Channels promoted fake news/conspiracy theories in the form of out of context or manipulated pictures/videos and distorted informations.

Always check the URL of any website.Some fake news websites look like the orginal and popular one the same layout,Logo but if you check the URL you may find extra words like if the orginal website's URL is www.xxx.com the duplicate one might be www.xxx.com.co or something like that so first check the URL for authentic informations.

Check whether photos are original or photoshopped.Check Google images for authenticity.You can find help from Google Reverse Images search.

Check the news sources from other websites whether they picked up the story or not.

Whether the website layout is little bit clumsy and obviously grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes and excessive use of Sex related and sensational and hate stories.Because sex and hate sells.

Follow official websites relating to COVID-19

WHO Clarifies the disinformation about the virus:
COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates
Cold Weather and Snow can not kill the new coronavirus
Taking a Hot Bath Does Not Prevent COVID-19
COVID-19 Can not be transmitted through mosquito bites

Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. Spraying such substances can be harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth)

According to World Health Organization (WHO): Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth . If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.

Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover.

Follow WHO guidelines

www.who.int

When you follow COVID-19 related news and messages from social media then check and recheck it before consuming it.Follow journalism mantra: if your mother says she loves you, check it out.

Most of the messages or informations quote different organizations like WHO, UNICEF, UNDP,Cambridge University  or other well known institutes,organizations or individual to authenticate the messeges.Check official websites of these organizations  if stories are repeated there

Forwarding messages from unknown sources or little known sources, it would be better to ignore it.

Check whether any logo like UNICEF or WHO or other organizations used in the messages which look similar to original logo.

These type of messages are full of Grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes which are quite uncommon in original messages.

Some fake messages pretend to be real one like unofficial Twitter handle of international media organizations like BBC,CNN,Washinton Post, New York Times-check the official Twitter handles of media outlets.
