Editor's Note: China Tibet Online published an article entitled "Seven Questions to Dalai Lama" on March, 22, 2012. Under enormous pressure from international media which said that "Dalai Lama's office has made no comments", the so-called "Central Tibetan Administration" (CTA) made an English statement on March 26, 2012. The author of "Seven Questions to the Dalai Lama" issued a response statement. The following is the full text:
Statement to statement of "Central Tibetan Administration": author of "Seven Questions to Dalai Lama"
Spokesman of the so called "Central Tibetan Administration" issued a statement in English on March 26, 2012, which categorically denied the author's accusation on the Dalai Lama's "encouraging self-immolations in Tibet and advocating expulsion of non-Tibetan residents out from Tibet", and claimed that the Dalai Lama himself, Kashag and Lobsang Sangay have always opposed self-immolations. On this declaration, the author makes the following statement:
First, the author hopes that the so called "Central Tibetan Administration" respects the original article. In the article, the authors pointed out that the Dalai Lama intended to "expel non-Tibetan residents out from Tibet", but your statement distorted it as "advocating expulsion of Han Chinese out from Tibet", it has deliberately distorted the original idea of the author in order to change the meaning of "producing confrontation between Tibetans and other nationalities" for the concept of "producing confrontation between Tibetans and Han people".
This is a kind of literary skill. The author expresses his deep disdain for this and regards it as a new evidence of making "confrontation between Tibetans and Han people".
Second, my seven questions are for the Dalai Lama instead of the "Central Tibetan Administration", but why are you so anxious to give the answer? Who do you think you are?
Since you are on behalf of the political administration, do you think you are qualified to speak for the self-called religious leader, the Dalai Lama?
The Dalai Lama is despised for his intervention in political affairs in the name of religion, and you are unforgivable since your political figure tries to intervene in religious affairs.
Third, I hope that you "Central Tibetan Administration" withdraw the so-called "statements", and ask the Dalai Lama himself to answer the "Seven Questions" seriously. Otherwise, it will be none of your business.
Fouth, a number of media, including the Associated Press (AP), the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Times of India and Hindustan Times etc, refer to my view that the Dalai Lama's "high-degree autonomy" is a Nazi policy of "ethnic cleansing" in their reports. And I have historical facts and hard evidences. If you disagree, will you dare to come forward to debate with me?
Fifth, after going through your statement, I think it is a newest collection of your lies, such as the Lobsang Sangay "has made repeated appeals to refrain from extreme measures through international media and official statements", the Dalai Lama "has always discouraged drastic actions", and "despite 'the Central Tibetan Administration' appeals, Tibetans continue to self-immolate". If I can find some examples exposing your lies, will you, the spokesman, admit your tricks and apologize? If so, I'd like to invite some concerned journalists to witness it.
Sixth, as for the "Seven Reasons" you have stated, they are nothing but cliché, which are the same as your old tricks accusing the Chinese Central Government.
Seventh, from your "Seven Reasons", I am convinced that both you and your masters are good at shifting blames and putting labels on others, which is called "literary lord" in the literary circle, "warlord" in the military circle and "villains" among the people.
Therefore, I hope the Dalai Lama can answer my seven questions in a responsible manner before labeling me as a Chinese official, a spokesman for the Chinese government or a CPC member.
