Dalai Lama describes Chinese torture of Innocent Tibetans. What is unbelievable that, despite all the description given by him, he says that there are many other events, WHICH ARE TOO EVIL TO MENTION. The following is the article about International Commisions enquiry on the Tibetan Refugees, taken from the book "My Land and My People" by Dalai Lama. The words of Dalai Lama :-

In its inv...estigation, the Commision examined every Chinese and Tibetan statement, and send its trained men to interrogate Tibetan Refugees, and in doing so brought to light more horrors than even I had heard of. I do not think most people want to read of the extremes of cruelty, and I do not want to write of them, but in justice to my own people I must sum up the oppressions which that impartial enquiry revealed.
Tens of thousands of our people have been killed, not only in military actions, but individually and deliberately. They have been killed, without trial, on suspicion of opposing communism, or of hoarding money, or simply because of their position, or for no reason at all. But mainly and fundamentally they have been killed because they would not renounce their religion. They have not only been shot, but beaten to death, crucified, burned alive, drowned, vivisected, starved, strangled, hanged, scalded, burned alive, disemboweled, and beheaded. This killings have been done in public. The victim’s fellow villagers and friends and neighbours have been made to watch them, and eye witnesses described them to Commision. Men and Women have been slowly killed while their own families were forced to watch, and small children have even been forced to shoot their parents.
Lamas have been specially persecuted. The Chinese said they were unproductive and lived on the money of the people. The Chinese tried to humiliate them, especially the elderly and and most respected, before they tortured them, by harnessing them to plough, riding them like horses, whipping and beating them, and OTHER METHODS TOO EVIL TO MENTION. And while they were slowly putting them to death, they taunted them with their religion, calling on them to perform miracles to save themselves from pain and death.
Apart from these public killings, great numbers of Tibetans have been imprisoned or rounded up and taken away to unknown destinations, great numbers have died from the brutalization and privations of forced labours, and many have commited suicide in despair and misery. When men have been driven to take to the mountains as guerillas, the women and children left in their villages have been killed with machine guns.
Many thousands of children, from fifteen years of age down to babies still at the breast, have been taken away from their parents and never seen again, and parents who protested have been imprisoned or shot. The Chinese either declared that parents could work better without their children, or that the children would be sent to china to be properly educated.
Many Tibetan men and women believe the Chinese have sterilized them. They independently described the a painful operation to the interrogators of the International Commision. The Commision did not accept their evidence as conclusive, because the operation did not correspond to any methods of sterilizations known to the medical profession in India. But on the other hand, there was no other explanation to it, and since the Commision’s report was completed, new evidence has been given which has convinced me that the Chinese did sterilize all the men and women of a few villages.
Besides these crimes against the people, the Chinese have destroyed hundreds of our monasteries, either by physically wrecking them, or by killing the lamas and sending the monks to the labour camps, ordering monks under pain of death to break their vows of celibacy, and using the empty monastic buildings and temples as army barracks and stables.
On all the evidence which they collected, the International Commision considered the Chinese guilty of “the gravest crime of which any person or nation can be accused” – that is, of genocide, “the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group as such”. They were satisfied that the Chinese intend to destroy the Buddhists of Tibet.
