Kalachakra Returnees Passports Torn at Airports in China


Tibetans China Passport

Tibetans returning from India after attending the Dalai Lama's Kalachakra initiations in Bodh Gaya, India, are facing scrutiny from authorities as they return to Tibet.

According to Phayul, the Tibetan news website in English, passports of Tibetans were torn on arrival as they reached Dendhu (Chengdu) airport in Sichuan Province, which is used by many Tibetans from eastern Tibet taking direct flights from Nepal's capital, Kathmandu.

The source also said that Tibetans who attempted to enter Tibet through different airports in mainland China also suffered similar inspection. Likewise, officials at airports in Guangzhou and Kunming also tore passports of Tibetans returning after having attended the religious teachings.
