Sino-Indian Investigative Tribunal
Greeting to the Delegates of the Sino-Indian Investigative Tribunal!
Tibet is at the core of the Sino Indian relationship. China has pressed its claim on Indian Territories on the basis of purported Tibetan ecclesial or tutelary links, rather than any professed Han Chinese connection. Indeed, ever since China gobbled up the historical buffer with India, Tibet has remained the core issue.
The new formulation of territories ran counter to India’s position from the very beginning — a stance that came from India’s biggest blunders over Tibet, including by prime ministers Jawaharlal Nehru and Rajiv Gandhi. Nehru in 1954 ceded India’s British-inherited extraterritorial rights in Tibet and accepted the sprawling region’s annexation without any quid pro quo.
China is offering Bhutan a territorial settlement in which it would cede most of its other claims in return for being given the strategic area that directly overlooks India’s chokepoint. At the same time, Beijing is working systematically to shape a Sino-friendly Kagyu sect of Tibetan Buddhism. This sect controls important Indian monasteries along the Tibetan border and is headed by the China-anointed but now India-based Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley.
With China now challenging India's interests even in the Indian Ocean region, it is upon the Delegates of the Sino-Indian Investigative Tribunal to formulate a substantive plan avoiding a possible two-front conflict as
The world moves into a new age of Chinese Supremacy or will it?
