Dharamsala, Oct 1 (ANI) -- Tibetan Prime Minister in-exile Samdhong Rinpoche has said that the Tibetans issue shall be resolved through the non-violent Gandhian principles.

Rinpoche said this while paying tributes to Mahatma Gandhi on the eve of his 137th birth anniversary in Dharamsala, the seat of the Tibetan government in-exile, on Wednesday.

"Peace and non-violence is the only way to resolve any problem and Tibet is also to be resolved from that," said Rinpoche.

Rinpoche also sent out a message of peace and non-violence to the Tibetans across the world.

The Tibetan ?freedom struggle? against China is influenced by Mahatma Gandhi?s message of non-violence and uprightness.

Gandhi?s decades-long non-violent movement has inspired leaders across the world including exiled Tibetan leader Dalai Lama, South Africa?s Nelson Mandela and US civil rights leader Martin Luther King, who led movements against injustice and suppression in their respective countries.

Gandhi, who several times resorted to "fast unto death" to extol Hindus and Muslims to stop rioting, has been the symbol of India?s secularism and a strong advocate against the deep rooted casteist discrimination in Hindu society.

Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869 in Porbandar. A lawyer by profession, he struggled for India?s independence from British rule through peaceful non-violent ways. (ANI)
