The regional government in Tibet hailed social stability and religious harnomy in the autonomous region, citing over 1,700 ethnic and religious activities held there in a peaceful and orderly manner, according to a report released Friday.

Neither a single accident, including stampede, fire or traffic accident, nor any criminal case or case of undermining public security occurred in these religious activities, said the report.

The report was released during a panel discussion of national lawmakers from Tibet at the annual session of the National People's Congress (NPC).

Tens of millions of people attend Saga Dawa Festival activities every year, and millions take part in Shoton Festival activities, it said.

More than 60 Living Buddhas have been confirmed through historical conventions and traditional religious rituals, the report said.

It said that Tibet has more than 1,700 monasteries and venues for religious activities, with about 46,000 monks and nuns.

Though Tibet is geographically distant from Beijing, the hearts of people of all ethnic groups in Tibet are always together with the Communist Party of China Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core, the report stated.
