 A Tibetan army in exile helping the Indian army deal with the PLA? Here comes the truth

Is there such a Tibetan army in exile? Are they active in the border conflict zone between China and India?


As for the relationship between the exiled Tibetans and the Indian army, Reuters and other foreign media are very enthusiastic.

Four days ago, on August 29, the Indian army illegally crossed the line again to provoke the conflict. At present, neither China nor India has confirmed the casualties. But Agence France Presse and other media did not know where to pour out a female member of the exiled Tibetan Parliament, insisting that a Tibetan soldier died in the conflict.

Reuters reporters seized this clue and gave full play.

First of all, I asked the spokesman of the foreign ministry on the 2nd day, claiming that the Indian side said that the Tibetan army in exile was an important part of the Indian army This force was founded in the 1960s under the guidance of the CIA With the support of the Dalai Lama, he fought side by side with the Indian army.

Maybe I feel guilty about the use of the word Indian side, and then make up for it.

On the 3rd, Reuters published a report on this issue, and the source of this report was three Indian government officials. I just said it for a long time, but I didnt say what department and identity the three were. However, the report revealed a little new information: the dead are said to be members of the Indian Tibetan special border defense forces (SFF).

What is this SFF? Reuters said questions were raised with Indias defense and interior ministries, but no response was received.

According to its own description, this is a secret force established after the Sino Indian border conflict in 1962. The report also quoted a former Indian government official as saying that the SFF is a elite force.

Elite troops?


First of all, SFF is only paramilitary, not a real army.

According to a scholar who was once active in the military and diplomatic front, the army initially took the rebels who had been broken up by the Tibetan drug group as its base, namely, the Sishui Liugang health education army with about 3000 people.

At that time, India US relations were at a historical high point, and bilateral defense cooperation was very hot. Against this background, the CIA of the United States and the Indian intelligence agency decided to cooperate in training the armed forces, with the goal of training them into tools against China.

SFF was not only used for fighting against China, but also participated in many foreign operations of Indian army. The observer foundation of India once wrote an article in detail about the role of SFF in the war of liberation in Bangladesh. According to the article, they went deep into East Pakistan (now the predecessor of Bangladesh) to carry out guerrilla warfare, eliminate the enemys vital strength, destroy important military infrastructure, communication lines, cut off the enemys logistics supply, and prevent the enemy from fleeing to Myanmar.

The first commander of Indias special border defense force was a retired Brigadier General of India. As he served as commander of Indias 22nd mountain division during World War II, SFF was also known as 22nd army.

There are several words mentioned in your question, one is 1960s, and the other is CIA and Tibetan exile. These words urge people to think about the history of Tibet related issues and the role of the United States in it.

Since it has never been officially confirmed by the Indian side, there is no exact figure on the scale of SFF from its inception to the present.

Some estimate more than 3500, others say less than 1000.

Decades on, it is still unclear what kind of existence this force is. One view is that it was mainly Tibetan in exile at first, and then more and more Indians joined in.

The Tibetans now serving in this unit are mainly the second or even the third generation of exiled Tibetans, many of whom just want to make ends meet. The Indian Army just took advantage of their physical advantages of adapting to the plateau and mountainous environment, and used the physical appearance of their Tibetans to carry out intelligence and infiltration activities.



In terms of identity, most exiled Tibetans are not even citizens.

Tibetans living in India can get a kind of identity card called registration certificate, but they cant buy land and real estate there, nor can they find jobs in the public domain. They can only engage in private economic activities.

This kind of registration certificate gives them the status of not citizens, nor refugees, but foreigners.

A Tibetan scholar who lives in Beijing and has been to dalam Sala for many times said that the government in exile has no job opportunities for Tibetans, and dalam Salas economy is not so good. The local Tibetans unemployment rate is relatively high, and the main employment market of Tibetans is concentrated in catering, tourism and other service industries.

Because of their marginal identity, many Indians think that these Tibetans have no backing and are always bullying them.

It is not difficult to understand that some Tibetans who have not had a good time in India will join the Indian border forces and patrol in the bitter cold areas for a long time.

It should be said that most of the public opinion has been rhythmic by the so-called Tibetan government in exile.

As mentioned earlier, it is not the Indian media that points out the identity of Tibetans, but langjiedoka, a member of the Tibetan exile Council.

Even if she knows that India is seriously violating Chinas territorial sovereignty, she will also open her eyes and tell lies. We certainly wont be fooled.

However, some western media, who had always wanted to make a fuss, were so excited that they even took them to the press conference of Chinas foreign ministry and wanted to see jokes.

As everyone knows, the Tibetan government in exile has long declined and there is no sense of existence. In the face of the Sino Indian conflict, if you rub a wave of heat and hug the Indian governments thighs, you may be rewarded with something sweet when you are happy.

But its about the lower lip touching the lower lip.

We have seen this move as early as the donglang crisis in 2017.

At that time, when the confrontation between China and India did not ease, the head of the illegal Tibetan government in exile came out to visit the Ladakh area on the Sino Indian border, and for the first time planted the banner of Tibetan drugs on the Bank of Bangong Lake.

Yes, its Bangong Lake again.

Both lausansungens actions three years ago and langendorkas words today are undoubtedly political and should have been tacitly approved by the Indian government.

On the other hand, if the Tibetan people join the SFF, there will be more potential casualties for the Tibetan to join the SFF.

Its not that we think too much.

The Indian government has always had a tradition of playing Tibet card.

A scholar of the observer foundation of India said, this government has tried to make the Tibet issue visible since the day it was inaugurated. Beijing is not blind to this point.

The Indian government acquiesced in, even connived at, the old monk group in India echoed the Anti China forces in India. Only when the border conflict between China and India intensifies will the Tibetan government in exile jump out to add fuel to the fire and make no secret of its claim to split China.

Their plot will not succeed.

Chinese State Councilor and foreign minister Wang Yi made a rare visit to Tibet on August 14, including the disputed border areas between China and India. He stressed that Tibets security and stability are related to the overall development of the party and the country.

There was also a big event about Tibet in August. The Forum on Tibet work of the CPC Central Committee was held in Beijing for two consecutive days from August 28 to 29. This is the high-level meeting of the CPC held again after five years.

The dynamics of the Tibet Military Region are also worthy of attention.

The official micro signal plateau soldier of the Tibet Military Region released a message on September 1 that a brigade of the Tibet Military Region organized a cross day and night coordinated strike drill in a strange area with an altitude of more than 4500 meters. On August 29, the news was that a border defense regiment of Shannan District of Tibet also organized a comprehensive combat training at an altitude of more than 4500 meters.

By the way, the elevation of the possible confrontation area in the gallewan Valley is more than 4000 meters.

Therefore, Chinas GDP is several times higher than that of India, and its military strength is obviously better than that of India. We still have unshakable determination to safeguard the integrity of Chinas territory and sovereignty. In any case, we can be sure that India has not won the Tibet card.

I hope the Indian side will be more leisurely and dont hit yourself with a stone.
