Hazaribagh: India Tibet Friendship Society (ITFS) Hazaribagh celebrated the 33rd birthday of 11th Panchen Lama of Tibet on 25 April at Bara Bazaar in Hazaribagh (Jharkhand). During the birthday commemoration, ITFS members led by President Shri Sudesh Kumar Chandravanshi offered their prayers and greetings to 11th Panchen Lama.
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama recognised Gedhun Choekyi Nyima, born on April 25, 1989, as the reincarnation of the 10th Panchen Lama on May 14, 1995, according to Shri Sudesh Kumar. However, on May 17, just three days after his recognition, the Chinese government abducted the 11th Panchen Lama and his entire family, and the Chinese government replaced him with another boy, which is really sad and awful. He also stated that the 11th Panchen Lama is the world's youngest political prisoner, and that the Chinese government must immediately release him. Shri Sudesh Kumar wished for the health and longevity of the 11th Panchen Lama.
ITFS Hazaribagh Patron Dr B. K. Singh said, “11th Panchen Lama is the rightful Guru of Tibetan people who had been appointed by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and the Chinese government must immediately release him and his family from their captivity”.
ITFS District General Secretary Shri Ajit Kumar Chandravanshi, Shri Shyam Kishore Prasad, Shri Ajay Kumar Singh, Shri Surendra Sinha, Shri Upendra Sinha, Shri Anil Kumar Singh, Shri Shailesh Kumar Chandravanshi and other members also attended the event.
All the members of ITFS Hazaribagh demanded in unison that the Chinese government immediately release Panchen Lama and his entire family for the good of all.
