Dean MacKinnon-Thomson (a politics student at Stirling university in Scotland) posted a small piece about the Dalai Lama’s hypocricy on his blog New Right this morning. The post is titled Acting with impunity: the Dalai Lama.
Below is the section that relates to Shugden practitioners.
Political hypocrisy and impunity
This deeply symbolic and important border town however saw the Dalai Lama engage in his usual round of confrontational politics over Chinese influence in Tibet.
He spoke of Tibetan right of autonomy within China, he also spoke of the fundamental rights of Tibetans to command their own fate free from violence or cohersion. And normally I would agree with any leader who spoke such words. But not the Dalai Lama. The hypocracy in his saying such things grates with my sense of fair play and justice.
Someone should stop treating this man [for that is all he is] with such impunity, and challenge him. When he speaks of Tibetan human rights, why on earth does no one challenge him over his cultural and physical suppression of the followers of Dorje Shugden? Why when he speaks out against Chinese state sanctioned murder and torture does the BBC and the world press not demand to know why the Dalai Lama has never condemned the actions of those acting in his name who have murdered in the hundreds Dorje Shugden believers?
The longer we treat this Dalai Lama with such impunity over his own actions the worse the human plight of the human beings at the centre of his cultural war within Tibetan Buddhism shall become.
As much as I find myself disliking Chinese actions in Tibet, it must surely be preferable to a Tibet run by this Dalai Lama.
