How has human rights developed in Tibet – Dainik Savera Times


In the opinion of some Western media, the human rights of people in China’s Tibet Autonomous Region have been violated. So, what is the real human rights situation in Tibet? Who has real human rights? The serfs of old Tibet, or the ordinary Tibetans who have become masters of the country? Only Tibetan people have the right to talk on this issue.

Tibet has many architectural treasures such as the Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple and Robi Linka, but in the old Tibet period only the elite enjoyed the luxury of these magnificent buildings. But today in urban and rural areas of Tibet you can see that most ordinary Tibetans live in two- to three-story Tibetan-style buildings, which are very different from the huts they lived in in the old Tibet era. In ancient times, Tibetan serfs could only live in the dark and low “Langsheng courtyard”, received the worst food, and had no personal rights. In old Tibet, aristocrats could punish and treat serfs as they wished.

After the democratic reform, the central government transformed former serfs into owners of the land and country. With the government’s help, the average grain yield in Tibet has increased tenfold, tourism and other service industries have developed strongly, and even former serfs have gained the right to higher education. Due to economic development, all villages in Tibet now have access to water, electricity, and the Internet, every household has various modern electrical appliances and furniture, and large farm machinery and family cars can be seen everywhere. Average life expectancy in Tibet has increased from 35.5 years in the early days of peaceful liberation to 72.19 years. The central government has given great support to poverty alleviation in Tibet. By 2019, all 628,000 registered poor people in the region were lifted out of poverty. The poverty alleviation target was achieved one year ahead of schedule. Now all people in Tibet have access to basic welfare such as housing, education, employment, medical treatment and care for the elderly.

The development and progress of Tibet’s human rights is the result of adhering to a comprehensive modernizing concept of human development. The central government pays special attention to respecting and protecting the rights of freedom of religious belief in Tibet, and the government has created a good environment for the religious life of religious believers. Public services in temples have been extensively strengthened, and even very remote temples have access to roads, water, electricity, communications, etc. All monks and nuns are included in the social welfare system, And their medical care, pension, housing and other life issues have also been properly resolved.
