Dalai Lama praises Indian unityMarch 29th, 2008 - 10:07 pm ICT by admin
New Delhi, March 29 (IANS) Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama Saturday credited the rule of law and freedom of expression to explain why Indians with varied cultures remained together. Speaking to reporters here, the Dalai Lama said that despite differences in customs and languages, Indians generally got along with each other quite well.
“Here north Indian, south Indian, west Indian and east Indian, they all have different languages, food and customs but they all live together… except may be Kashmir where there is some problem,” he said.
“This is due to rule of law and freedom of expression,” he added.
The Dalai Lama said all this was accomplished “without force” though “in Kashmir there may be some force”.
He pointed out that if there were any problems, they were highlighted by the media. “Maybe the media sometimes sensationalise. But if there is any problem, it is immediately brought out by the media.”
