China has barred Tibetan students in Lhasa from taking part in religious activities during their school vacations. The parents are being ordered to stop their children from any involvement in religious activities. TG Arya, spokesperson of Tibetan government in-exile said, "They (China) are trying to control the minds of the Tibetan younger generation and students, they have ordered that the kids are not allowed to pilgrimage with their parents." "If any children are found going to monasteries or attending teaching or going to pilgrimage that parents have to bear the consequences. As per the international law, this is a gross violation of religious freedom, language freedom and culture freedom," he further added.
