Lhasa, Tibet:

China’s atrocities on Tibet are no secret and the communist nation is now conducting large-scale DNA tests to create a biological database of people to monitor.

A recent report by Human Rights Watch noted that there is an arbitrary collection of DNA from residents of many towns and villages throughout Tibet, and in particular the so-called Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR), as reported by Tibet Press .

These developments clearly indicate that China, now confident in its technological oversight, is moving into the next phase of its repressive and authoritarian policy of bio-security.

The CCP has implemented biosecurity as an agency to control the population, specifically targeting the occupied territories of Tibet, East Turkestan and Southern Mongolia.

Earlier, China used biological means to sterilize thousands of Uyghur Muslims, with dire consequences. And recently there is a massive DNA collection campaign taking place in Tibet where Human Rights Watch has identified drives in 14 different localities in 7 prefectural-level regions, showing how much the project is under the current regime. is extensive.

As the Tibet Press reports, in particular, with the 20th National People’s Congress, one can conclude that Beijing in particular wants President Xi Jinping to have a smooth meeting, which will eventually see him serve as president for an unprecedented third term. will choose as

As a result, it is quite clear that the ultimate goal of the recently unfolded massive DNA collection campaign without the consent of Tibetans is to keep Tibetans engaged and engaged so that they, along with millions of Chinese, remain unhappy and stick to their zero-Covid policy. Together the displeasure with the communist government in its handling of the Covid-19 pandemic will not come together and form a united unit protesting against the regime.

Tibet has been under Chinese occupation since 1949 when the People’s Republic of China (PRC) was established.

Nevertheless, even with the naked eye, one can see that the level of repression and persecution has increased significantly since the 7th Tibet Working Forum held from 29-30 August, 2020 and is currently at an unprecedented rate, as in Tibet The press has reported.

However, the collection of genetic material is not new to China as its Ministry of Public Security runs the world’s largest forensic DNA database, which probably includes more than 100m profiles. This activity involves collecting samples of criminal suspects or victims of crime, as Western countries do.

But since 2017 Beijing, under the leadership of Xi Jinping, has changed the course of this activity and launched a campaign to collect DNA from 10 percent of all Chinese men with the sole purpose of tracing a male’s male relative.

The move was condemned by many activists as they saw it as a means through which the alleged troublemakers would be punished and their parents and family involved would be threatened.

Such intentions and tricks were a way to operate in areas occupied exclusively by Beijing.

For Tibetans, it was common knowledge that you should be apolitical if you have family and ties in Tibet, even if you personally are far from the direct clutches of Beijing’s authoritarian regime.

This is because your family members were immediately questioned, threatened and even punished because of your actions, which is far beyond Beijing’s jurisdiction, Tibet Press reported.

In 2018, Tenzin Voser, a former Tibetan political prisoner who crossed the Himalayas and sought asylum, was personally subjected to mental torture and witnessed physical violence on his mother in Tibet by Chinese authorities. His mother was forcibly detained for more than a fortnight and demanded that her son return to Tibet.

As reported by the Tibet Press, this is one of the many incidents in which not only Tibetans but also the current Chinese Communist Party (CCP) people come into their daily lives.

Be it Tibet, East Turkestan (Xinjiang) or South Mongolia, there have been numerous reports of China’s coercion and frequent announcements about new laws and regulations to control the people.

Such egregious actions, including such bio-security measures that completely disregard the very core of humanity that all human beings possess, call for united action against China.
