Lhasa [Tibet], November 23 (ANI): Reports have surfaced that China is sparing no tactics in asserting its dominance in the China-occupied Tibet region. This comes at a time when the surveillance tactics employed by the Chinese Communist Party in that region are almost choking the lives of local Tibetans, Tibet Rights Collective reported.
Citing reports from Human Rights Watch and the Citizen Lab in September this year the Tibet Rights Collective also claimed that CCP had been involved in an extensive collection of DNA samples. These samples are gathered from locals and children attending kindergarten.
As per a report published in December 2020 by the Tibetan municipality of Qinghai in China. The samples of all boys between the age of five and 17 were gathered from the area. It must also be noted that a person’s DNA is extremely vital information. As it helps the holder of the DNA to identify a person permanently, know their medical records and even derive information about their relatives and family members. And that too without the slightest possibility of forged identity.
The Chinese authorities have made security even tighter in the China-occupied Tibet region, especially after the protests that broke out demanding the return of the Dalai Lama.
According to Tibet Rights Collective, the CCP asks the local government to report all political crimes, profile DNA reports and listen to personal phone conversations. We Chat is banned and 5G has been installed to process, access and gather data from the area more efficiently. The locals even have to bear limits on movements as there are on where these people can go. This is the pattern that China is following to assert not only political or military but also social dominance over the area.
