    Progress and prosperity of Tibetans in India will remain in the history as a telling example and pride of India’s ethnic pluralism and democracy which even America does not grant. Not many people know that irrepressible Tibetans are a zealously concealed nightmare of the Hans-dominated China, which is worse than many Kashmirs put together for India. Only recently, China got a taste of Pakistan when it found that its Uighur muslim jihadis in its far-west Xinjiang province are being trained nowhere else, but in Pakistan. Interestingly, what is the most preferred route of these jihadies, the Pak-occupied Kashmir. So much for China-Pakistan friendship made in heavens. Now be ready to live it on hell right here on earth!
