Dalai Lama visit to USA, and the meeting with President Obama has not been very well entertained by the Chinese officials. Dalai Lama is not only a good friend to Obama, but also likes to call him the ‘Inspiration for freedom and dignity.’
He also called Dalai Lama to be a separation activist working his way up, hidden in religious pretenses. The 14th Dalai Lama had fled Tibet in 1959 after suffering a failed uprising against Chinese rule while trying to separate China and Tibet, making Tibet an independent nation. Since then he has lived in exile in India.
Dalai Lama is also accused of trying to win over countries favors to help in his cause ever since his exile and any country harboring his sides will taste the bitter ends of China.
Countries taking heed to China’s warning include South Africa, which declined Dalai Lama’s visa thrice in the last five years which led to the shifting of the Noble Prize event to Rome instead of South Africa. Some other countries have also come to avoid Dalai Lama in order to stay on the good sides with China.
But according to China, USA is an arrogant country which doesn’t wish to keep peace with Obama greeting the monk and welcoming him for breakfast and calling him a powerful example of what it means to practice compassion and who inspires us to speak up for the freedom and dignity of all human beings.
Dalai Lama has suffered the rage of Chinese government for so long, and it might have been a refreshing gesture of the USA to show that they care and may support his cause. Although the question this may or may not end up being the reason for war-zone between China and the USA is left unanswered.
