Insult to Victims

3 April 2008
 

The German media published this image as the evidence of Chinese police cracking down the peaceful protest in Tibet. In the photo, a peace-loving and helpless Tibetan protestor was dragged along by two tough guys, one of them is an armed policeman. But now that poor guy who was said to be dragged along spoke out:

My name is Ajie, from Sichuan, and I'm not a Tibetan. That day on 14 March at about 2pm, I was on my motor bike entering Ramoche Temple Road from south end to my home, and only by then I noticed that something wasn't right: shops were shut or smashed or burned down, thick smoke shrouded the sky, screams and yells could be heard from everywhere - which was very much like a war movie coming alive. Then all of a sudden, I was knifed down from my bike, and four or five young men emerged in front of me from nowhere. They punched me, kicked me, stoned me and stroke me with thick bulbs. I didn't know who they were and why they attacked me, but all I could to was to run with my life. On the way I saw other passers-by being assaulted, and witnessed that even police could hardly protect themselves behind their shields from stones hurled at them by the Tibetan thugs. When I eventually fell on the ground, I had no strength to get up again, and I knew I was going to die. Then two strong hands lifted me up and carried me running ahead. I saw clearly that they were police. When I woke up again, I found myself lying in a hospital bed with my dad sitting by my side.

I was saved by the policemen, but I don't know their names. And when I saw the foreign media portraiting me as a Tibetan protestor being caught by police, I was furious over this insult.

Myth and Reality of Tibet

Before considering Tibet today, some words should be said about Tibetan Buddhism as a religion. The accommodations it made with Bon resulted in its becoming very different from other forms of Buddhism, particularly from the more common and much larger Chan Buddhism of China (called Zen in Japan). Images found in Tibetan Buddhist temples are much fiercer than those found in other Buddhist temples, and some Tibetan ceremonies that once used human skulls, human skin, and fresh human intestines clearly reflect the animistic elements of Bon.
