BJP MP Jamyang Tsering Namgyal condemned the “baseless and malicious” allegations against Tibetan spiritual leader 14th Dalai Lama after a purported video of his went viral and urged his followers to remember the teachings of Buddhism.
In a statement, Namgyal said, “It is disheartening to see baseless and malicious allegations being levelled against the His Holiness. We must remember that the teachings of Buddhism are grounded in principles of peace and non-violence, and baseless accusations have no place in such principles.” He further stated that Dalai Lama’s contributions to the world are not limited to his teachings of compassion and empathy.
“As the Member of Parliament representing the people of Ladakh, I am proud to stand in solidarity with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and express our gratitude for his continued support and inspiration,” Namgyal said in the statement.
“We recognise the immense contributions that he has made towards creating a more compassionate and peaceful world, and we pledge to continue to work towards this goal together,” he added.
