Dalai Lama advocates dialogue to end terrorismJanuary 18th, 2009 - 2:28 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Jan.18 (ANI): Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, on Saturday urged a path of non-violence and dialogue to confront terrorism.
“We must show non-violent ways to deal with these conflicts so that is dialogue. I think the text books should include the education of morals without touching religion, education of non-violence and peace and the concept of compromise,” the Dalai Lama told a gathering here.
The Tibetan spiritual leader’’s comments come at a time when tensions have been simmering in India and Pakistan over last November’’s terror attacks in western Mumbai, blamed on Pakistan-based terror outfits.
The Buddhist leader said he loved the outgoing US president George Bush though he did not agree with some of his policies.
“I love him (US president George Bush) but some of his policies…one time I told him I love you but some of your policies …I expressed that way so he knows I am opposed to some of his policies,” the Dalai Lama said.
The Dalai Lama earlier in the day inaugurated a forum named ”Global Congress on World’’s religions after September 11 - An Asian Perspective” in New Delhi. (ANI)
