Local community and government officials joined the Scientologists in honoring Ven. Bagdro for his work to further the human rights of the people of Tibet. He is an outspoken advocate of Tibetan independence and author of the book A Hell on Earth, which describes the plight of prisoners of conscience who are tortured for their religious and political beliefs.

Scientologists on five continents engage in collaborative efforts with government agencies and nongovernmental organizations to bring about broad-scale awareness and implementation of the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the world’s premier human rights document.

Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream,” and the Scientology religion is based on the principles of human rights. The Code of a Scientologist calls on all members of the religion to dedicate themselves “to support true humanitarian endeavors in the fields of human rights.”
