Shimla Nov 1 BJP veteran and Kangra MP Shanta Kumar on Tuesday demanded Bharat Ratna, country’s highest civilian award, for Tibetan Spiritual leader Dalai Lama for his valuable contributions in spreading message of peace and harmony in the world.
Speaking after the release of the book “Himalaya Par Lal Chhaya” by the spiritual leader, Shanta Kumar criticised China for its support to Pakistan which is promoting terrorism against India. “This was a serious matter of concern as China can’t be trusted blindly,” said Kumar.
Kumar said even after 50 years when he wrote this book about China’s threat, the conditions have not changed much as there were concerns about China’s activities and its relations with Pakistan. “There are signals of some alarms which would not be ignored or misread,” said Kumar
The Dalai Lama, in his address, said: “India is a living example that religious traditions can coexist and live together side by side. India has become great due to its rich philosophical thoughts.”
Stating that he is feeling like a citizen of this state, the Dalai Lama said he has been in Himachal Pradesh for more than 55 years. “All these years, the successive governments have supported the Tibetans for which I am grateful to the people of this great land,” he said.
