We enjoy freedom living in India, says Tibetan spiritual guru Dalai Lama

Tibet territory is currently administered by China which Tibetans consider illegal military occupation. The Tibet's government in exile is currently headquartered in Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh, India.

Dalai Lama, the Tibetan leader in exile, yesterday said that the Tibetan refugees in India enjoy the freedom of India.


“Living in India, we already enjoy freedom. For over 60 years. One way I am refugee. But in another way I enjoy India’s freedom,” he said.

Speaking on Tibet’s freedom, Dalai Lama said that while they appealed to the UN regarding Tibet’s freedom, former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had said that the UN could not do much and they should appeal to China for the same. Taking a dig at China, he said that he has retired since 2001 and Tibet can now teach China a thing or two on how to practice democracy.
