India's football captain Baichung Bhutia

Nonviolence People We See
India's football captain Baichung Bhutia has refused to carry the Olympic torch during its journey through the Indian capital Delhi later this month.

He told the authorities the move was in protest against China's crackdown on Tibetan demonstrators, officials said. "I sympathise with the Tibetan cause. This is my way of standing by the people of Tibet and their struggle. I abhor violence in any form," Bhutia told the Times of India newspaper.(BBC)
