Re: Intelligence & National Security Discussion

Yup almost all the Tibetans and Bangladeshis have Ration Cards and every other benefit available to all Indians! The percentage of Bangladeshis is alarming in North Bengal, especially in areas such as Islampur, Chopra, Mekhligunj, and the rest of Jalpaiguri Division. The Tibetans on the other hand ...

Re: Intelligence & National Security Discussion

Indian agencies also use Tibetans to spy on the Chinese border and the TAR region. I think it was the 22 battalion that was formed especially for this purpose and is still being used. Tibetans do not get much assistance from the Indian govt. per se (except for the permission to stay in India) but t...

It's easy to get rid of these. Just spread the rumor amongst the Gurkhas in Darjeeling that the Pagodas are being used to spy on them. In a few hours all the chinese agents there will be headless and the Gurkhas will be drinking their old monk rum in the cool shade of Pagodas. That's not that diffi...
