Tibet was under the Qin dynasty in the earlier years, however after the British overthrew the Qin dynasty in 1911, independence of Tibet from China was declared under the 13th Dalai Lama. In 1949, the communists tried to bring the whole of Tibet that was under Qing’s dynasty under their control. It was invaded by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) in 1959, and the UN Security Council regarded Tibet to be part of China. But over time, there was drift between the Dalai Lama and the PLA, which led to the exile of Dalai Lama to India. This tension and difficulties still persist today in the lives of Tibetans.
