China does not have religious basis to choose Dalai Lama: America

198

The US has once again made a strong comment on China regarding the Tibetan religious leader, saying that it has no religious basis to choose the next Dalai Lama. America's top diplomat Samuel D. Brownback also said that Tibetan Buddhists have been successfully choosing their spiritual leader for hundreds of years, so China does not have the right to make that choice.


Samuel Brownback, the US Special Ambassador for International Religious Freedom, said this during a conference call commemorating his visit to India in October. He said that he had gone to Dharamshala in India to talk to the Tibetan community and tell them that the United States was against electing the next Dalai Lama from China. In response to a question, he said that Tibetan followers of Buddhism have been successfully choosing their leader for hundreds of years and they still have the right to do so.


Brownback said that it also includes the next Dalai Lama. He said, 'We believe that the Communist Party of China is utterly wrong to say that they have the right to choose (the Dalai Lama).'.


Will not help in the fight against terror

US diplomat Brownback accused China of religious persecution, saying, "This will not help them in the fight against terrorism." China is trying to tell the world that it is an attempt to stop terrorism, but this will give them more Will to create more terrorists. He said that the way to deal with terrorism is not to stop everyone. For this, it is necessary to give them religious freedom. Brownback appealed to China to stop attacking various faiths, including Uygars, Tibetan followers of Buddhism, Christians, and Falun Gong.
