The Students for a Free Tibet (SFT) – India began a campaign making urgent plea for medical parole of Tibetan political prisoner Tulku Tenzin Delek Rinpoche after serving 13 years in a Chinese prison on April 7, 2015.
“He was falsely accused because of his actions which supported Tibetan cultural identity. He is currently under critical condition. We, on this World Health Day, are organizing this campaign for his urgent medical parole,” says Geshe Lobsang Yonten from Drepung Gomang Monsatery in South India, who is also the first cousin of Tulku Tenzin Delek Rinpoche.
Starting from Sonamling Tibetan Camp in Majnu ka Tilla, a candle light march carried all the way towards the Delhi university metro station.
"The campaign will highlight the Chinese law on medical parole through signature campaign, submitting appeals to foreign missions including European Union," says Tenzin Tselha, grassroots campaign coordinator of SFT-India.
