Varanasi, Mar 29 (UNI) To draw attention of the world community towards the atrocities being done to Tibetans by the Chinese government, the Tibetan refugees staying in Varanasi have organised a photo exhibition 'Shradhanjali Sabha' and a documentary film on the present situation of Tibet at Dashaswameth Ghat here tomorrow.

The Tibetan refugees living here said, ''The situation in Tibet has reached an alarming stage with the continuous harassment of Tibetans by the Chinese army.'' They further said, ''If the problem was not solved at the earliest, undoubtably it will emerge as a big problem for Asia.'' The Tibetans have requested the world to urged China for a dialogue with spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, so that peace could be restored in Tibet.

They further criticised the Chinese government for violation of human rights, besides condemning media for making baseless allegations on the Dalai lama.

The refugees demanded unconditional release of Tibetans lodged in jails and early check on violence.

Denying the charges of Chinese government on Dalai Lama for the recent violence in Tibet, they said, '' the Dalai lama is a world recognised spiritual leader, who has followed the path of non-violence and is committed to world peace.'' The refugees also sought UN's intervention into the issue and asked to send a delegation comprising representatives of various world countries, human rights and independent observers for the assessment of situation there.

They have also appealed to the Red Cross Society and other international health organisations to send medical assistance.
