India’s Stand On China Bolder Than Ever Before

Noted Tibet expert and journalist, Vijay Kranti is of the firm belief that the recent meeting of a bi-partisan delegation of U.S. lawmakers with the Dalai Lama and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, sent a clear message to China.

In an interview to StratNews Global, the Delhi based Tibetologist presented a bird’s eye view on issues related to Tibet and China. He said that although former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s remarks were controversial, she was fair in explaining the contrast between the Dalai Lama and Xi Jinping.

Vijay who has known the Dalai Lama for over fifty years, dismissed criticism that India allowed the U.S. delegation to make anti China remarks on Indian soil. He says that the Indian government’s stand on China has become bolder than ever before and this is a very positive sign.

He added that although no country over 70 years approved human rights atrocities the Chinese were committing on the Tibetans inside Tibet, nobody had the courage to challenge China especially after Xi Jinping took over.

Vijay says that the passage of three American resolutions on Tibet, is a sign that the world has started thinking more clearly on Tibet and China. The Canadian House of Commons, has also passed a similar resolution. This is bound to have a cascading effect and the next step may be in the European Parliament which has a history of being pro Tibet. He is hopeful that President Biden will sign the Resolve Tibet Act. He may even sign it on the Dalai Lama’s birthday on July 6, during his U.S. visit.

Vijay says that Xi Jinping has triggered off a reaction by his bullying and the U.S. is determined to fight back.

On the question of reincarnation, he wondered why China, which has been so anti-religion and has been abusing the Dalai Lama, is interested in a reincarnation of the Dalai Lama.

He says that China has realized that the Dalai Lama’s influence cannot go and that is why they want the next reincarnation of the Dalai Lama, in their hands.

At the same time, he thinks that the Communist Party of China and its leader Xi Jinping may feign indifference to international opinion but they are actually scared of it.
