Recently released political detainee, Venerable Jigme, a monk from Labrang monastery in Amdo, speaks in an exclusive video about his experience of being arrested, humiliated for his nationality and tortured while in detention. He examines his experience in light of international ideas of human and religious rights, Chinese laws, and China's stated policies for its society and nationalities.
Kunleng aired the exclusive video of Ven. Jigme from Labrang and invites Jampel Monlam, an analyst at Tibetan Center for Human Rights and Democracy to discuss his case and it's wider implications for violations of human rights and religious freedoms in Tibet and the unconstitutionally harsh practices of the Chinese authorities in Tibet even by Chinese laws and standards.
