A million Tibetan children forcefully separated from their families by China
By Devvrat Pandey: For a long time, the Chinese government has endeavoured to assimilate Tibetans into the prevailing Han culture of the country. This has involved implementing specific policies for Tibetan children, who were compelled to attend residential schools where they were taught in Mandarin and indoctrinated with communist ideology.
China’s policies towards Tibet have long been a source of controversy, UN Human Rights Council and human rights groups accusing the Chinese government of violating the rights of the Tibetan people. One of the most concerning aspects of this conflict is the forced segregation of Tibetan children from their families, as part of the Chinese government’s efforts to assimilate Tibetans into Chinese culture in occupied Tibet.
