Himachal Pradesh: India should not change its political path when it comes
to Tibet keeping in mind the long traditional relationship between the two
countries, Union Minister Kiren Rijiju said on Saturday.
“India has a long tradition of relations with Tibet and its dharma gurus
(religious leaders). India should not change its political path. India is
the land of Gautama Buddha and the land of Mahatma Gandhi,” said Rijiju.
The minister of state for home affairs also said it was the Bharatiya Janata
Party-led NDA government that decided to declare Buddha Jayanti a national
Rijiju was addressing the Tibetan community at the Palpung Sherabling
Monastery on the occasion of Guru Padma Sambhava maha puja.
Veteran BJP leader and former chief minister Shanta Kumar was also present
on the occasion.”After we formed the government last year, we declared
Buddha Jayanti as a national holiday.
“Indians and Tibetans have a spiritual relationship. Guru Padma Sambhava
went to Tibet and at a later day, Buddhism returned to India in its purest
form,” said Rijiju.
Rijiju further stressed the role of religious leaders in containing the
threat of violence faced by society. “Only the government and the security
forces cannot stop violence. We have to depend on the dharma gurus to spread
the message of peace,” he added.
