Scholar: Democratization of Tibetan government in exile inflated
15:41, November 14, 2009  

The democratization notion of Tibetan government in exile is inflated, and the U.S. was just trying to deface the international image of China by making use of the Dalai Lama, said noted Chinese scholar Jin Canrong in Beijing ahead of Obama's first state visit to China, which falls on Nov.15.

Jin Canrong made the above remarks when receiving an interview from China Tibet Information Center. Jin said the Chinese side believes the Dalai Lama is a political leader as well as the real head of the Tibetan government in exile.

Jin Canrong hold since 1990s Dalai has been engaging in democratization, standing at the back of the democratization by exercising his authority. The strange democratization is given by Dalai Lama rather than being spontaneously formed by the bottom of society, and it is inflated.

Jin said:"The Chinese Central Government firmly believes a series of activities of Dalai in the worldwide are for his political purpose, and we strongly oppose."

"The U.S.A regards Dalai as a spiritual leader, deeming he is in pursuit of protection of Tibetan culture and autonomy of Tibet," Jin Canrong said. There is difference between China and the U.S.A towards this affair.

People focused on strategies study usually think Dalai is only an important "card" of the U.S. strategy towards China and the U.S. doesn't really regard Dalai a spiritual leader, said Jin,

Jin gave an example--some figures of the European Parliament invited Dalai, resulting in Pope Benedict XVI saying he will never take part in the European Parliament if those figures are still in office.

It shows although the western societies including the U.S. disapprove the religious philosophy of Dalai Lama, they still put Dalai on place of "religious leader". It makes people wonder if there is some strategic purpose behind it, Jin added.

What is the strategic purpose? Firstly, to deface the international image of China by making use of Dalai Lama, making issues concerning "ethnic minority" and "freedom of religion belief" in China standing out. Secondly, to force China to remain a certain condition of nervous towards Tibet issue and to try to "heat up" the topic.
