  1. There is nothing wrong in celebrating Bhutan’s National Day which was celebrated everywhere where Bhutanese live. It proves the camp residents are truly Bhutanese even if Bhutanese rulers deny they are not Bhutanese. No refugee has ever celebrated Nepal’s or India’s Naional Day in Camps.Bhutan’s representative to recent human rights sssion in Geneva Dr. Kinzang Dorji should feel ashamed that he calls these residents as non-Bhutanese. They are better Bhutanese than Dr. Kinzang or Yeshey Dorji who instead of admitting the facts that Bhutanese rulers did commit human rights violations resulting in forced evicions of southern Bhutanese continue to spread the lies.
