Is there any evidence that the Tibetan Government in Exile tells lies? Have a look for yourself. Below is a quote from Tashi Wangdi (the Dalai Lama’s representitive) speaking about the ban on Dorje Shugden. His statements are recorded on video.
Tashi Wangdi (speaking to the press): “I think there is a lot of misunderstanding. I was trying to explain that there is no ban.”
Quotes from the Dalai Lama and Samdhong Lobsang Tenzin regarding the ban on Dorje Shugden also recorded on video.
Dalai Lama: “I began this ban to continue the Fifth Dalai Lama’s legacy, I started this by myself and I have to continue, and carry it to the end. Understood?
Dalai Lama: “Some of you are not serious, but this is wrong. You, staff members, pretend not to hear anything, and you let time go by. You think it is better that we don’t take action against people.”
Dalai Lama: “In Sera Je monastery some students voluntarily took responsibly and are working on enforcing the ban. This is very good.”
Samdhong Lobsang Tenzin (prime minister of exile government): “On this topic, we have to take some clear action. Otherwise, if we don’t act because we think that this ban is going to create a lot of different problems in our society, and fearing segregation within our society—then I think this is wrong.”
10 Questions for the Dalai Lama
1. Why do you deny that you are enforcing the ban on Dorje Shugden when there are videos of your speeches enforcing this ban?
2. If you are truly an advocate for human rights, why do you issue identity cards which make it extremely difficult for Shugden practitioners to get food, water, shelter, medical attention and travel visas?
3. Why do your followers view you as the Buddha of Compassion when you engage in such harmful actions toward your own people?
4. If you are truly an advocate for nonviolence, why don’t you ask your followers not to engage in violent actions toward Shugden practitioners?
5. Why do you teach your disciples that the heart practice of a Buddhist is reliance on the Spiritual Guide while you are having the thrones and images of your own Spiritual Guide removed from monasteries?
6. Why do you lie about Dorje Shugden, saying that he is a evil spirit harming the cause for Tibetan Independence when you have said that you are no longer working toward Tibetan Independence?
7. Why have you expelled over 900 monks from their monasteries for practicing what their lineage gurus have been teaching them in their monasteries for the last 350 years?
8. Why do you claim that you are following the example of the 5th Dalai Lama, when it was the 5th Dalai Lama who made the first statue of Dorje Shugden that can still be seen?
9. Why don’t you stop lying?
10. Why don’t you give religious freedom to Shugden practitioners?
Is the Dalai Lama really a champion for peace and nonviolence?
In 1996 followers of the Dalai Lama stoned and hurled insults at Dorje Shugden practitioners in Southern India. If the Dalai Lama really was a man of peace and nonviolence wouldn’t he ask his followers to stop their violent actions toward Shugden practitioners?
Instead of asking his followers to stop the religious persecution of Shugden practitioners he says:
There will be no change in my stand. I will never revoke the ban. You are right. It will be like the Cultural Revolution. If those who do not accept the ban do not listen to my words, the situation will grow worse for them. You sit and watch. It will grow only worse for them.
The Dalai Lama to monks in India who questioned the ban
The problem is that in Tibet most people shun those whom they think the Dalai Lama wants them to shun. –TIME Magazine
This is a video of the recent Western Shugden Society protests at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. This video clearly documents the violent and abusive nature of many Dalai Lama followers toward Shugden practitioners. Imagine what the Tibetan Shugden Practitioners in South India must experience without the protection of the police and news reporters videotaping and documenting their actions.

A personal first-hand account of the Western Shugden Society demonstration at Radio City Music Hall, July 17 2008
I was asked to do security facing the sidewalk (facing west) and a mob of Tibetans gathered about 15 feet from us and started yelling. Some were giving us the finger, some were flapping their dresses. One woman came up and started spitting at us. I put my body in between and got some spit on me and water (I think someone threw a water bottle at us). She looked at me and told me I would die with blood running out of my mouth. There were no police on our side of the pen as they were completely occupied with the stream of Tibetans pouring out of Radio City and crossing 6th ave on 50th Street. I could see people getting violent and the police were being very physical defending themselves throwing people on the ground and shoving them away when they started getting violent. My brother who had a better vantage point told me a couple of people were arrested because they hit police officers. One woman went to hit a police officer and he took her down by twisting her arm. Another woman was handcuffed by three police officers but I did not see her being led away so perhaps they let her go. The police maced others who were trying to attack the protesters, some of the protesters on the outskirts of the demonstration pen felt it. The scene was so intense. Crowds of onlookers also were gathering on all corners and 6th Avenue was closed to traffic during rush hour for 20 minutes.
