[This marginal note was written onto a report by MAO ZEDONG at the point where the Indian Foreign Ministry spokesman stated on 29 March 1959 that Tibetans in India had not undertaken “illegal activities.”]
Note: Dear Indian friends: Don’t be credulous with the Tibetans. Their direction of the Tibet uprising is secret. Maybe we know what you don’t know! 
 Mao’s tone seems to imply that he suspects the Indians of feigning ignorance.
