we can hardly understand what these gobseys doing. it seems the Dalai lama has asked for the award, he should return the damn award to the VC of the university.
I think he has almost no room for awards.

This decision is so disappointing especially since it's a university. Clearly they are too afraid of pissing the Chinese off. I think it was hypocritical for the university to confer the honorary degree to HH when it seems clear now that they place great importance to what the chinese government says. The university has used poor judgment in expressing "regret" - whatever that even means. If i was a student at this university I would be really angry and make my voice heard. I personally wrote an email to this guy Roper - nice curt email with no explitives. Do the same. And yes, HH should return the degree. He doesn't need it.

Subject: WHY APOLOGY?

It is very shameful on the part of the Vice-Chancellor to un-necessarily apologized the Brutal Regime in Beijing for the most approperiate job done by University by awarding the Honorary Degree to His Holiness the Dalai Lama. This is an act practically licking Brutal Regime's ass to please them in order not to loose international students from China. Foolish. If you are hungry for few extra tuition fees from international students, advice your Visa office in India to issue more students visas from India. There are plenty of students seeking admission in your University.

Now that Vice-Chancellor has already apologised to the Totalitarian Regime in Beijing, His Holiness the Dalai Lama should return back the Honorary Degree to the Vice-Chancellor. I think The Dalai Lama has done a favour to the University by accepting their Degree. But now, situation is changed. Let the Vice-Chancellor lick Communist Regime's ass.
