Dalai Lama’s Reasons for the Dorje Shugden Ban

Below is a quote from the article Dalai Lama’s Reasons for the Ban of Dorje Shugden from the Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden Blog.

Even if the Dalai Lama’s views on the practice were reasonable or true, which they are not, it would still be unacceptable to force these views on others in this way, using his political power to impose his religious will. Imagine if any other leader forced this signature campaign on Muslims, or Jews, or Shamans? There would be a huge outcry and people would be reminded of Germany in the 1930s.
