A response has just been posted on the Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden Blog to Tenzin Peljor’s post titled “India Update – Present Situation” in which claims are made that the WSS aims have already been met.
In fact, the WSS aims have not been met at all. It is most regrettable that the monks should be separated. Segregation did not work out too well in the South of the U.S. or in South Africa.
However, if the choice is between “separate but equal” (Jim Crow) or being deprived access to basic social services, then separate but equal is better. The question is then whether Shugden practitioners are still denied access to shops and medical care within the monasteries and nearby communities? It would appear that yes, they are, and there are accounts to show this.
