Subject: Shugden attempts to defame His Holiness
Jul 13 2015 07:32 PM

I was at Jacob Javitz Center last Friday for His Holiness' birthday celebration and gratitude ceremony. The Shugden billboards were gone but Shugden protesters were still present. I noticed none of them were Tibetan, although there were some Asians dressed as monks pretending to be Tibetan but clearly were not. The carried Buddhist flags but none displayed a Tibetan flag, perhaps b/c their Chinese backers would not want to see a flag of independent Tibet.

The central claim of Shugden followers, that His Holiness denies them freedom of religion, is proven false by the facts. No Shugden follower has ever been denied freedom of religion by His Holiness, who has no police force or ability to stop Shugden followers from practicing their religion, or even protesting against him. Amnesty Int'l even conducted an investigation, at the request of His Holiness, and found no evidence to substantiate Shugden groups' claims.

The very fact that Shugden followers are able to publicly protest against His Holiness proves that they have freedom of speech & religion. In occupied Tibet, if a Tibetan protests against China or proclaims support for His Holiness, they are arrested & tortured. China is the one oppressing Tibetans. Shugden groups should protest against China for the lack of freedom of religion in Tibet.
