The Dalai Clique recently published an article slandering China’s Han people, saying that they are not able to extend their family lines in places of high altitude like the Tibet Autonomous Region. The groundless libel completely exposes its sinister intentions.

The article, published by Susanna Pilny, presumptuously claimed that even though 7 million Han people have migrated to Tibet since 1950, they will never outnumber the non-Han population there because genetic reasons make it difficult for Han to reproduce in high altitudes.

This is another attempt of the notorious political group to collude with western anti-China forces to expel the Han people living in Tibet.

As early as 1987, the Dalai Lama proposed a so called “Five Point Peace Plan for Tibet” to the U.S. Congressional Human Rights Caucus, attempting to push out all ethnic groups besides the Tibetans, including the Han people who live there.

“If what the Dalai Lama advocated comes true, it would be a catastrophe for a multi-ethnic country like China,” said Zhu Weiqun, Director of the Committee for Ethnic and Religious Affairs of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference.

Throughout history, the Han, Tibetan and other ethnic groups have lived together on the Tibetan Plateau, weaving a tale of solidarity and harmony into the bloodline of the Chinese nation.

In A.D. 641, Princess Wencheng of the Chinese Tang dynasty married into a Tibetan family. She brought the finest and most knowledgeable entourage, as well as Buddhist sculptures, sutras and great masterpieces. This historical tale symbolizes the profound kinship between the Han and Tibetan people.

In the 1950s, the People’s Liberation Army and central government officials liberated the Tibetan people from the feudal serf system that had prevailed in the region for over 1,000 years.

China has dedicated great efforts toward the modernization of Tibet. For many Han Chinese people, Tibet is home.

In contrast to the central government’s devotion to Tibet’s development, the Dalai Lama has been constantly provoking conflicts between the Han and Tibetan peoples since he fled to India in 1959.

In the "3.14 riots" of 2008, rioters even shouted a slogan calling on the Tibetan people to attack the Han people.

In an interview with Deutsche Welle in August 2009, the Dalai Lama once again exposed his intention to evict the Han people from Tibet by saying that there must be more Tibetan people than Han people in Tibet.

Colluding with western anti-China forces, the Dalai Clique not only claimed their intention to evict Han people from Tibet, but also preached the ridiculous fallacy that Han people would gradually become extinct due to their infertility in high-altitude areas.

The unscrupulous approaches the Dalai Clique adopted completely expose their sinister intentions.

Though he embraces the title of Nobel Peace Prize winner, the Dalai Lama and his followers have repeatedly threatened to wipe out the Han population in Tibet.

Such duplicity exposes members of the Clique as Tibetan separatists, which is unacceptable to the whole Chinese nation.
