Letter from Jamyang Dorjee to The Editor of the Times of India, New Delhi re: 'Karmapa may be Chinese agent' Jan 30, 2011
Times of India
Please refer to the TOI news ‘Karmapa may be Chinese agent’ dated 30th January, 2011.
We are deeply hurt not only because of the raids conducted in the premises of Karmapa but more by the media trying to build a imaginative story, blow this beyond proportion and throw malicious accusation to the person of Karmapa as Chinese spy. Karmapa is not only spiritual Guru of the 6 million Tibetans in Tibet but also one crore Indian Himalayan Buddhist of Tibetan origin. We live in Sikkim and are as much Indian as the reporters in Delhi who have no clue of spiritual relationship between us and our gurus who transcends international borders.
Karmapa, the Government of India is aware, receives constant flow of disciples from every country including Tibetan from Tibet and offer money in various currencies. That does not make him international spy or for that matter Chinese spy. Yes, the staffs were not sophisticated enough in putting up a foreign exchange counter to enable every visitor change their money into Indian currency before every audience.
For Tibetan, India is what Mecca and Medina is for Muslims and their faith in their Gurus and their religion is strong as ever. Indian intellectuals are aware that during the 60 years in exile, all China’s money and power could not win the hearts of a single Tibetan with a design is to hurt India.
The report says “Chinese have of late been using religious arguments to buttress their claim over Tawang” and the report trying to link forcefully, by quoting some unnamed intelligence source is doing exactly what the Chinese like their ‘friendly’ Indians to do for them. I wish reporter also considers the Indian Buddhists sentiments and Tibetans who have sacrificed their precious life in Kargil and Bangadesh for the security of their adopted nation.
