Nepal becoming a Chinese province? - 7- Arrests for doing prayers...

TOI [Thursday, July 08, 2010 12:26]

"Over 350 Tibetans were detained by Nepal police while trying to attend the prayer meeting today on the occasion of His Holiness’ 75th birthday," said a doleful Tibetan journalist, who declined to be named. "There were extraordinary security measures to deter Tibetans from attending the mass meeting and we were not allowed to pray at the traditional public Buddhist places like Boudhanath, Swayambhunath and Pharping.
the caretaker government sent instructions to the parliament secretariat, asking the 601 members of parliament not to attend the subdued ceremony that was held at the Jawalakhel Tibetan refugee camp in Lalitpur district. The order came after Nepal’s President, Dr Ram Baran Yadav, and Foreign Minister Sujata Koirala earlier this year accepted invitations to attend celebrations at a Buddhist monastery but were hurriedly forced to cancel them after a red-eyed Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu objected fiercely."

Religion is poison to the people according to hard-line communists; arresting them is apparently not?

Love & clear light,

Nepal becoming a Chinese province? - 6 - Not allowed to celebrate His Holiness the Dalai Lama birthday

From DPA [Tuesday, July 06, 2010 15:11]

Nepal police on Tuesday detained more than 100 Tibetan refugees who had gathered to celebrate the Dalai Lama's 75th birthday, but released them later in the day.

If I were to celebrate the birthday of my mother in Nepal, would they arrest me too?

Please remain to help us sentient beings.
We are daily tormented by suffering
Caused by our own ignorant behavior and attitude,
Please help us to reach the highest state of enlightenment.

Love & clear light,
