BEIJING: It has been revealed that China has separated about 800,000 Tibetan children from their parents. The Tibet Action Institute (TAI) reports that about 800,000 children have been separated from their parents in order to adapt Tibetan children to Chinese culture.

According to the TAI, about 800,000 Tibetan children between the ages of 6 and 18 are placed in boarding schools in its colony by China. The report concludes that the children were separated from their parents in order to impose Chinese culture on Buddhism and its culture.

According to Tibet’s National Review Magazine, parents are forced to separate from their children due to the lack of alternative education in Tibet and the Chinese government’s repression. Analysts have projected that children separated from their parents will be deprived of learning Tibetan culture, religion and language and will grow up according to Chinese culture.
