Renowned activist Sonam Wangchuk receives anonymous warnings amidst climate protest, highlighting escalating tensions in Ladakh.

Ladakh, 21 April 2024: In a recent video update from Ladakh, renowned education reformist and environmental activist Sonam Wangchuk shared a shocking revelation. Amidst the ongoing climate fast in the Indian Himalayas, Wangchuk disclosed receiving an anonymous letter warning him of potential threats to his safety and the security of his institute.

The climate fast, now on its 46th day, aims to draw attention to the promises made by the Indian government, particularly the Ministry of Home Affairs, to protect Ladakh’s fragile ecosystems and indigenous cultures under the Sixth Schedule of the Indian Constitution. Wangchuk emphasized that these promises, which were central to the government’s manifesto in recent elections, have not been fulfilled, leading to the necessity of the ongoing protest.

Wangchuk recounted the events of the previous day, where an unidentified individual handed him an envelope containing an anonymous letter. The letter, which Wangchuk read aloud in the video, revealed that the bank account details of his institute had been accessed by the anti-money laundering department. This disclosure, the letter suggested, was not intended for Wangchuk’s knowledge but was deemed important for him to be aware of the situation.

The sender, described as an admirer, expressed concerns about potential repercussions and urged Wangchuk to take action before it was too late. The mysterious circumstances surrounding the delivery of the letter, coupled with its contents, raised suspicions about the involvement of either bank staff or investigating agencies.

Furthermore, Sonam Wangchuk shared another unsettling encounter from the previous day. A man claiming to be an officer from a central investigation agency approached Wangchuk, expressing admiration for his work and issuing a cryptic warning about his safety. The officer cautioned Wangchuk to be vigilant, citing potential accidents or threats to his life, especially given his involvement in the protest movement.

Despite these ominous warnings, Wangchuk remained resolute in his commitment to the cause. He expressed a willingness to face any challenges, even risking his life if it meant bringing attention to the issues plaguing Ladakh and the nation at large. Wangchuk saw the potential for his demise to serve as a catalyst for societal change, igniting a revolution to address the pressing issues facing the country.

As tensions escalate in Ladakh and uncertainty looms over Wangchuk’s safety, his steadfast determination and unwavering resolve continue to inspire supporters and activists alike. The anonymous warnings serve as a stark reminder of the risks involved in advocating for change in a region grappling with environmental degradation and governmental neglect. Amidst the mounting challenges, Wangchuk remains undeterred, ready to confront whatever obstacles lie ahead in his quest for justice and environmental preservation.
