Who was Nyima Tenzin and why was he given Hero’s farewell

  • Special Frontier Force (SFF) Soldier Nyima Tenzin was a Tibetan himself.
  • He sacrificed his life during the pre-emptive operation the Indian Army carried out on the southern bank of the Pangong Lake in eastern Ladakh last week to foil a fresh move by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army to transgress into Indian territory.
  • In fact, chants of “Bharat Mata Ki Jai”, “Jai Tibet” and “Vikas Regiment Zindabad” reverberated during the funeral procession.
  • A gun salute was given to Nyima Tenzin in Leh as the funeral pyre was lit along with buddhist chants.
  • In Himachal Pradesh, Tibetans took out a candlelight vigil in McLeod Ganj to pay tribute to Special Frontier Force Commando Nyima Tenzin, earlier today.
  • The Special Frontier Force is an Indian Security Unit primarily drawn from thousands of Tibetan refugees who calls India as their home.
  • The SFF was formed after 1962 war with China.
  • India and China are engaged in an around four-month-long standoff at the Line of Actual Control in eastern Ladakh.
  • Despite several levels of dialogue, there has not been any breakthrough and the deadlock continues.
