According to an American diplomat, China has no religious basis to choose the next Dalai Lama. He said that Buddhist followers of Tibet have successfully chosen their spiritual leader for hundreds of years. The ambassador told reporters at a conference on Tuesday that I went to Dharamshala, India to talk to the Tibetan community. To tell them that America is opposing China to choose the next Dalai Lama.
In response to a question, Ambassador Luel de Brownback said that he had no right to do so. They have no religious basis to do so. Buddhist followers of Tibet have successfully chosen their leader for hundreds of years, they still have the right to do so. Brownback said that the US supports that religious communities have the right to choose their own leadership.
He further said that this definitely includes electing the next Dalai Lama. He said that we feel that the Chinese Communist Party is completely wrong to say that they have this right. The 14th Dalai Lama is living in India. In 1959, after the Chinese action on the rebellion of the local population fled to Tibet. The Tibetan government is deported from Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh. Let us know that more than 1,60,000 Tibetans live in India.
Brownback accused China that in the world, China is the country where people are most religiously persecuted. He said that this will not help him in the fight against terrorism. China is telling the world that religious persecution is an attempt to stop terrorism, but it is making the most terrorists.
