Tibetans end tension with Indians

Exiled Tibetans in Dharamsala have patched-up with locals, after a week of tension, following a minor scuffle between the two communities.

Dharamsala (Himachal Pradesh), May 12 : Exiled Tibetans in Dharamsala have patched-up with locals, after a week of tension, following a minor scuffle between the two communities.

The patch-up took place as Tibetan Prime Minister Samdhong Rinpoche and his ministers met with locals and urged everyone to maintain calm.Tension prevailed in the town and its surrounding areas after a local auto rickshaw driver was beaten up, allegedly by Tibetan youth when he reportedly asked them to give him way.

Shops remained closed and streets deserted in the sleepy hill town ever since.

"This was unfortunate. We all very strongly condemned it. It was very satisfying for us to see that President of the taxi union apologising and also offered a traditional Tibetan scarf to the two girls, and also from the Tibetan side appreciating the very kind gesture, presented the traditional scarf to the president of the taxi union and auto union," said Dolma Gayri, Deputy Speaker of the Tibetan Parliament-in-exile.

Gayri also said that it was important for the two communities to live in harmony.

"It is very important to continue to promote mutual understanding and respect. It has to be done not only at ceremonial official levels, but also at the grassroots, on an individual basis. And it has been a great learning experience for all of us this time. It is eye opening, and so therefore we will work harder into educating our people because deep down inside our hearts, there is not one Tibetan who does not love India," she added.

Tibetan arte-fact shops in the region are major tourist attractions, and their closure was visibly affected on the tourism-based economy.
