A sudden magnitude-7.1 earthquake hit Yushu County, Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of western China's Qinghai Province on April 14 and has caused huge casualties and tremendous economic losses. The relief work, which touches the hearts of the people all over the country, has been carried out as a great combat in the interior land of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. At this critical moment of do-or-die, the Dalai Lama, in collusion with some ill-willed western media, stated that he wished to "comfort the people in Yushu", in an attempt to take advantage of the Han-Tibetan relationship and the suffering of the quake victims, only to attract more eyeballs.
On April 20th, Jiang Yu, spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, responded at a press conference to the Dalai Lama's wish of visiting the quake-hit Yushu. She said that at present, the Chinese government and the Chinese people across the country are sparing no efforts in the relief work.
Overseas Chinese, including Tibetan compatriots, who are much worried about the quake area, have showed their care and sympathy in various ways. To date, the manpower for relief work is sufficient, and the materials have been incessantly transported to the affected area, she said.
The quake affected victims have received good medical treatment and settled down. In the meanwhile, psychological counseling has been properly conducted following the religious beliefs and customs of the local people. Religious praying ceremonies and soul releasing activities for the bereaved are successively conducted.
According to Jiang, quake victims have received sound medical treatment and allocation. Meanwhile, the government, strictly in line with religious and local folk customs, has carried out psychological comforting work. At the same time, prayers by religious circles are gradually in process.
Although not directly answering the Dalai Lama's request, Jiang has raised the question: what the Dalai clique has actually done for the victims when the catastrophe fell. She also gave a strong attack at the Dalai clique that unity and stability of China is the ultimate guarantee of the happiness of the Tibetan people. When the terrible natural disaster occurred inYushu, people from across the country and different ethnic groups showed their support, as well as starting the job of rebuilding a new Yushu in order to guarantee the safety and livelihood of the locals. The Tibetan people also find their spiritual sustenance from religious soul releasing and praying activities held for the cremation of the deceased and the 11th Panchen Lama Erdini Qoigyijabu holding prayers at Huangsi Temple in Beijing.
Besides, we do not need to give a head-on reply to Dalai who deserves none of our responses at all. An "indifferent on-looking" attitude is the right solution to Dalai's tricks. From the views of the people with wisdom, the Dalai Lama was not supposed to soothe the victims from the very start. Previously, he has made an attempt of "political show" by through holding a "victims soothing" flag. After the earthquake hitting Taiwan on September 21, 2009, the Dalai Lama, with help by Taiwan separatists, went to Taiwan with the excuse of a "prayer for victims", but he appeared to be a "disgusting play" in the shocked area: followed by over 150 media to "splendidly" divert people's attention towards the disaster and distract the relief strength; spending 700,000 $NTD merely on a special high-speed rail train and bogging down hundreds of security guards, causing "immense" waste of manpower, material supply and financial resources; forcing victims to accept his prayer, "mercifully" disrupted the intensely ongoing relief work. Claiming to soothe the spiritual damage for victims, he was obviously reached by no ordinary people at all.
Although the Dalai Lama affirmed the relief efforts by China, knowing clearly that there was definitely zero possibility for his return to Yushu and - if he comes, he will again re-act his "hypocritical tragedy", knowing that he will absolutely obstruct the efficient progress of the relief. He deliberately made the "wrong move", never missing any chance for his propagandization and ingratiation. Even when he realized that the chance was based on the immoral utilization of disastrous earthquake and thousands of Tibetan victims. "Hope to visit Yushu to appease quake-affected victims", is a merciful request seemingly, but an unspeakable purpose. Did the Dalai hope to visit Yushu, or to "appease victims", or to re-act his "hypocritical tragedy"? The answer is obviously known to all.
