Muddying the waters

The Dalai Lama refused to call self-immolations wrong in an >interview published by The Hindu on July 9. Then readers may ask him what compassion really means to him. His prayers for those self-immolators amount to encouragement of the violent deed.

As to autonomy, the Dalai Lama’s views totally contradict the Chinese Constitution. Ethnic Regional Autonomy and people’s representative system are the norms for ethnic minorities to exercise autonomy. He advocates “Greater Tibet” which is a legacy of the British imperialists to split China. It’s against the Constitution too. No Tibetan living in the Tibet Autonomous Region and autonomous prefectures buys his argument. With an ulterior motive, the Dalai Lama has been muddying the waters with regard to reincarnation. His disguised “independence” drive is doomed to failure.
