Self-immolations will not solve Tibetan rights

BEIJING (AP) – Tibetans including a prominent writer under virtual house arrest in Beijing are pleading for an end to self-immolations in protest of Chinese rule, saying such self-destructive measures do nothing for the cause of Tibetan rights.
Poet Tsering Woeser said in online appeal posted on Thursday that she is ‘grief-stricken’ by the more than two dozen people who have set themselves on fire over the past year. She called on influential Tibetans, including monks and intellectuals, to help end the deadly form of protest.
China has sought to portray the wave of immolations – including three since Saturday – as the result of outside orchestration rather than what activists say is local anguish over the government’s suppression of Tibetan religion and culture.
Many of the protesters have been linked to a Buddhist monastery in the mountainous Aba prefecture of Sichuan province. 
I know many have been taught “An Eye for an Eye” but I will teach you that “if a person slap you on the right cheek, let him slap you on the left cheek also”. This is no way to extend your Tibetan’s rights and if you believe in God, let Him handle the issue, and there will be peace and love on earth.
