Demolition of Buddha Statue at Drago monastery

Two Buddha statues and prayer wheels were demolished by Chinese authorities around a prominent monastery in Drango county in the Kardze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan province in December 2021 claiming that construction documents were not approved and that the height of the statue violated local building codes. Moreover, monks and Tibetans were forced to witness the demolition. Do you think this is part of an attempt to Sinicize Tibet and destroy Tibetan Buddhism and culture?
