Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader, spoke on the Dokalam standoff between India and China on Tuesday. He asserted that both the nations have to live side by side in peace.
“Eventually, ‘Hindi-Chini- Bhai Bhai’ is the only way; the two big nations, you have to live side by side,” Dalai Lama said.
Dalai Lama said, “Doklam standoff not very dangerous, India and China have to live side by side.” He further added the Hindi Chini bhai bhai slogan and made sure that everyone realizes the meaning behind it.
Dalai Lama even dwelled upon the concept of freedom and said that his chosen home, India has it. He did not mention China but made it pretty sure that China gets the beef.
He said, “There is freedom in this country, I can do more and have more opportunity to share. Where there is no freedom, I don’t like.”
We are sure this was regarding China but why did Dalai Lama point this out?
The Buddhist spiritual leader, Dalai Lama fled from his homeland and arrived in India, over six decades ago, as a young monk of 24 to save himself from the Chinese Army, who sought to crush the mass uprising in Tibet.
To add to this, it was the Assam Rifles jawan who escorted him to India 58 years ago.
It is evident for Dalai Lama to favor India for he has been living here and loves all that the country has to offer.
He further dwelled on the concept of freedom, saying his adopted home, India, has it all.
He even added that the Tibetan community in India practices the idea. He said, “Our small Tibetan community fully practices democracy, and I am an admirer of democracy.”
“Eventually, as per the wishes of the Chinese people, the Communist Party of China may follow our practice,” he said, referring to the practice of democracy.
He hopes that China will also follow the path of Democracy and become a democratic country.
