Dharamsala: Tibetans committing self-immolations were in principle practising non-violence as they had the courage to sacrifice their own life for a cause they believe, Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama said on Sunday. "I consider these Tibetans burning - certainly these people have courage and determination to sacrifice their own life, so they can easily harm other people - but I think these people, although they practised a little bit of violence, but I think in principle they still practise non-violence," the Dalai Lama said.
He said that the younger generation of Tibetans in Tibet these days have stronger determination as compared to earlier generations. The Nobel Peace laureate cautioned that the situation in Tibet is serious. "Now, things are serious. Whether Chinese government agrees or not, there are problems and these problems are neither good for Tibetans or for the people of China. So, we have to find a solution based on mutual understanding and mutual respect," he said.
