New Delhi, Mar 17 (UNI) Accusing the Government of not articulating its stand on the violation of human rights in Tibet, the BJP today urged the Centre to raise the issue in various international fora.

BJP Parliamentary Party spokesman Vijay Kumar Malhotra said that China, on the other hand, had been indulging in anti-India actions in its claim over Arunachal Pradesh. It is not agreeing for talks over the 40,000 sq km of Indian territory in Chinese control. The reaction of the Government on frequent Chinese incursions was muted, he said.

''China is speaking of 'people's war' on Tibet, its people and culture and India should raise its voice on behalf of these people in intenational forums like United Nations. The world can't allow repetition of another infamous Tianananman Square incident which resulted in purge of over 100,000 anti-government protestors,'' Prof Malhotra said.

Regarding the attitudes of Communists over the Tibet crisis, Mr Malhotra said they refused to condemn the 1962 attack by the invading Chinese troops. "They are more concerned for China", he alleged.
