Tibetans Condemn Unfounded Allegations Against His Eminence The Karmapa

Dharamsala,Jan30,2010-The Tibetan people across the world are deeply hurt by the baseless allegations of ‘Chinese links’ on the Karmapa after the police raids at his exile residence on 27th and 28th January, 2011. The media has gone overboard and spread speculations of “Chinese Links” which are totally baseless and cannot hold any evidence.

His Eminence the 17th Karmapa is not only the leader of the Kagyu sect of the Tibetan Buddhism, but  Buddhists across the world. His Eminence the Ogyen Trinley Dorjee has been recognised as the 17th Karmapa in the tradition of the Tibetan Buddhist that is more than 900 years old. Not only this, the Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorjee has been recognised by our spiritual and political leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The Karmapa has been living in exile receiving his traditional Buddhist education in Dharamsala at his temporary residence in Sidhpur, Kangra, Himachal Pradesh.

The five Tibetan Non Governmental Organizations on behalf of the Tibetan people protest in absolute terms such ridiculous allegations of “Chinese Links” on the Karmapa. We have absolute faith and trust in His Eminence the 17th Karmapa. The Tibetan people revere him and hold him in high esteem.
