Power flows from photos: Mao images in Tibet shrines

BEIJING: A senior Chinese leader on Friday defended the campaign by Communist Party cadre to install portraits of political leaders including president Hu Jintao and Mao Zedong next to the statues of Buddha in shrines across Tibet and Tibetan speaking areas in three other provinces.

"It was part of the celebrations for the liberation of Tibet from slavery. There is nothing wrong about it," Zhao Qizheng, spokesman for the annual session of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), one of the two houses of parliament, said. Zhao was referring to the official celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the "peaceful liberation of Tibet" after the People's Liberation Army marched into Lhasa in May 1949.

The move is seen by observers as a reasons that caused heart-burning among Tibetans and resulted in a spate of recent self-immolations. These shrines aren't allowed to display photos of the Dalai Lama.

Zhao claimed that the move has been "welcomed by different sections of the people in Tibet". He held the Dalai Lama responsible for instigating the incidents of self-immolation.

Zhao suggested the cases of self-immolation were pre-planned by organized groups and not spontaneous incidents. "Some people brought video cameras to film the incidents, and some even tried to prevent rescue efforts.
