Tibetan activist on 'Free Tibet World Tour' resumes his tour in Chennai

Lhakpa Tsering, a Tibetan activist, has begun his Free Tibet World Tour again after completing customs formalities.


Chennai, Oct.8 : Lhakpa Tsering, a Tibetan activist, has begun his 'Free Tibet World Tour' again after completing customs formalities.

Tsering arrived in Chennai on September 17, but had to spend a fortnight completing his customs formalities.

Tsering commenced his journey on March 10, 2010 from the UN headquarters in New York.

Before reaching India, he had travelled across 21 countries, spreading the message of freedom for Tibet.

Tsering told media persons here that Mahatma Gandhi has been his inspiration.

"I educate (enlighten) people about what's happening inside Tibet, lots of people do not know what's happening in Tibet. Tibetan people do not have human rights and there is no religious right. So, I am the voice, am educating people around the world, as I was travelling around the world," said Lhakpa Tsering.

"And also India is being a very important part of my journey. India is the place where the Mahatma Gandhi was born and Mahatma Gandhi used to teach non-violence and peace and Tibetans, we also believe in non-violence and peace. So, that's why India is being a very important part of my journey," he added.

Dawa, an active Tibetan Student a*sociation participant, appreciated Lhakpa Tsering efforts.

"In Tibet, all the people are suffering. They are suffering from lack of all the human rights, specially the basic rights. So, we want to create awareness about those suffering in Tibet to the equal of the world and it's a great effort from the persons like Mr. Lhakpa Tsering to go round the Tibet and tell people around the world that we need support," said Dawa.

Tsering plans to conclude his tour in Dharamsala, the headquarters of the Dalai Lama on October 29. By Jaikumar
