Pakistan Journalist Calls Dalai Lama a Terrorist!
« on: March 14, 2019, 04:07:43 PM »
A journalist from Pakistan has likened the Dalai Lama to extremist terrorist Masood Azhar. Mr. Hamid Mir shared his comment on popular social media platform Twitter. Though supporters of the Dalai Lama have voiced their anger, what he said definitely warrants further investigation.

While we know that the Dalai Lama has been branded as an ambassador of peace, this is far from the truth. He has not only segregated members of the Tibetan Buddhist community for their practice of Dorje Shugden, his direct involvement with the Karmapa issue has fractured the Karma Kagyu lineage in half with devastating consequences. Not to mention his derogatory comments against women, and a whole host of other political blunders.

Hamid Mir raises a good and valid point. We consider Masood Azhar to be a terrorist because of his actions which disrupts the peace and harmony we all want to live by in society. Similarly, the Dalai Lama disrupts the peace and harmony that the Chinese want to live by. Rather than condemning Hamid Mir for his words as a knee-jerk reaction, shouldn't we actually analyse what he says and then realise that of course the Chinese would consider him to be a terrorist, they have already labelled him a dangerous separatist because he is the head of the Tibetan people, who want to fracture the country of China.

Western countries and India block and condemn the activities of those they class as terrorists. They don't negotiate with countries that harbor terrorists. So why would China not consider India to be sheltering someone that they consider to be a terrorist and take measures to act accordingly?

Pak Journalist Compares Dalai Lama With Masood Azhar, Slammed On Twitter

NEW DELHI: A tweet by a senior Pakistani journalist in which he likened Tibetan leader Dalai Lama with terrorist Masood Azhar has triggered a storm on Twitter, with users slamming him for the remark. Referring to China blocking India and other nations from listing Masood as a global terrorist, the journalist retweeted a decade old news article whose headline described the Tibetan leader as a "terrorist".
"It's very easy to understand why China blocked resolution against Masood Azhar in UNSC? India sheltering an enemy of China since decades and his name is Dalai Lama," Hamid Mir tweeted.

After the 1959 Tibetan uprising against Chinese rule, the Dalai Lama fled his country and took refuge in India. He has lived here ever since. He is a popular Buddhist spiritual leader and has been honoured by various countries across the world. In 1989, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

I remember this well. The Pakistan (senior) journalist is right.
