“India Should Revise Tibet Policy On China Occupation, Make Stance Clear On Dalai Lama’s Succession”

A conversation on China occupied Tibet: past, present and future with Ambassador Dilip Sinha. His latest book is 'Imperial Games In Tibet: The Struggle for Statehood And Sovereignty'

China Occupied Tibet

“India’s position at that time (China’s invasion of Tibet in 1950) was that the invasion was wrong. The matter should be settled peacefully. And Tibet has internal autonomy. Now, all this has been violated by China. So China has violated the basis on which India and others formulated their policies. It is time to revisit the issue.” On ‘The Gist’, Ambassador Dilip Sinha speaks to StratNews Global Associate Editor Amitabh P. Revi. Ambassador Sinha is the author of the book ‘Imperial Games In Tibet: The Struggle for Statehood And Sovereignty’. You can find it in bookstores and online. Above all, it will officially launch in July. Ambassador Sinha has served as India’s Envoy to the UN in Geneva, was the Former Head of the UN Division and Ex-Head of the PAI(Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran) Division in the Ministry of External Affairs.

“China Claims Everything

“In his book, Ambassador Sinha demolishes the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) attempt to rewrite history by claiming Tibet was always part of China. “China now claims that even Chinggis Khan was Chinese. So they claim everything. But, the Mongols were the first to rule over Tibet. Thereafter Tibet became independent. The Manchus conquered China in 1721. When the Manchu dynasty collapsed in 1912, Tibet declared independence. Tibet was independent until 1950 when Communist China invaded.” Infact in history there were times when Tibetan rulers invaded China and captured the then capital.

Ambassador Dilip Sinha discusses:

  • The recent U.S. bipartisan lawmakers’ visit to the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala.
  • Prime Minister Narendra Modi, NSA Ajit Doval and EAM Dr S. Jaishankar meeting the delegation subsequently.
  • The latest Tibet Act passed by both Houses in the U.S.
