Mumbai, Nov 2: A group of students staged a noisy protest outside the Chinese consulate here Wednesday demanding freedom for Tibet.
‘We condemn the government of China for its continued repression in Ngaba, eastern Tibet,’ said Bhavita Bhatia, a member of the Students of Free Tibet (SFT).
‘In the past seven months we have witnessed 10 acts of self-immolation in Tibet, mostly by young Buddhist monks,’ she said.
When the protesters tried to hand over a list of their demands to Consul General Niu Qingbao, it was not accepted.
India is home to the Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama and around 10,000 Tibetan exiles.
