An Assassination Attempt
By Dalai's Lama Gang

4 July 2009

This Tibetan man (达瓦) was married but he still had to share a bedroom with his owner's (东噶宗拉鲁溪卡) cattle since he was a slave by birth and a property of his master under the 14th Dalai Lama's medieval-style rule that terrorized his people with an exclusive and demonic worship religion: a fake Buddhism - Tibetan Lamaism.

On 1 June 1974, just a day before 17-year old Jigme Singye Wangchuck was to be formally enthroned as the ruler of Bhutan, the tiny Himalayas Kingdom grabbed the world attention with a shocking report that a plan to assassinate the new king was uncovered.

What makes this claim particularly sensational are the facts that the conspiracy involves the late king's royal concubine Yangki, and Yangki is an exiled Tibetan woman, and the mastermind behind Yangki is an exiled Tibetan man called Gyalo Thondup, and Gyalo Thondup is, no other, but the second old brother of the 14th Dalai Lama.

Bhutan had a troubled history with the militant lamas from Tibet. During the 11th century, the entire Bhutan was invaded and occupied by Tibetan-Mongol military forces. Then in 17th century, Tibetan Lama and military leader Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, who fled religious persecution in Tibet, took Bhutan by force and ruled with iron fist. Soon he died, but a civil war erupted, and the Tibetan lamaist armies, taking advantage of the chaos, attempted to conquer Bhutan again in 1710, then with the assistance of Mongols in 1730, but both failed miserably.

During the reign of Dorji Wangchuck, the late father of the young king, an Tibetan woman Yangki had successfully made herself a concubine of the king. A greedy and aggressive soul with unlimited power drawn through the king, Yangki positioned herself as a dominant force in state politics, and along with her exiled Tibetan relatives and friends lived in privilege and above laws.

Following the failed military insurgence by Dalai Lama in 1959, under the heavy pressure of India, Bhutan had allowed about 6400 Tibetans, mainly militant Tibetan lamas and former serf owners, to set up 8 Tibetan settlements in the kingdom. However, with a royal connection through the concubine, the exiled Tibetans believed they deserved something much better than that - they wanted a highly independent Tibetan state within the kingdom. The demand was, sadly, rejected outright by the new king, which prompted the exiled Tibetans to act immediately with the plan of assassination of the monarch in order to install the Tibetan concubine's son on the throne.

According to the various sources of the media reports during the period in 1974, a military depot with a large number of ammunitions and poisonous chemical compounds was uncovered. The Bhutan authority also seized a letter written in Tibetan script addressed to one of the arrested plot participants instructing him to set fire to the royal temple planned for coronation ceremony. The arrested later admitted that he expected to receive 100,000 Indian rupees in return from the exiled Tibetan government for destroying the coronation site of Bhutan kings, the Bhutan equivalent of Westminster Abbey in Britain. The investigation also found that the preparations of the military coup started since 1963 organised by Dalai Lama's brother with a terrorist training camp set on the Indian side bordering Bhutan.
