(TibetanReview.net, Jan06’16) – China has on Jan 5 criticized Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, because the police department of the state in which he lives has called for raising the level of security being provided to him at his residence. Its online Tibet news service eng.tibet.cn called the Indian security agencies’ assessment that he faced threats from Chinese agents “a stunt” set up by the Dalai Lama himself to attract international attention.

The report took the Indian police assessment and its beefing up of security to safeguard the Dalai Lama in McLeod Ganj as a “framing” of China. Claims that China is sending spies to assassinate the Dalai Lama are groundless as he has been snubbed by many countries and has lost his international influence, the report asserted.

Earlier, reporting on the proposal for raising the security regime at the Dalai Lama’s residence, the tribuneindia.com had reported Dec 30 that the Home Department of the state of Himachal Pradesh had received a request to enhance security for the Dalai Lama “in view of the perceived threat to his life,” and that “there have been several instances in the recent past when alleged Chinese spies with maps and documents containing secret information have been arrested around his residence.”

The eng.tibet.cn report suggested that the Dalai Lama was struggling to attract international attention and cover up his “internal and external troubles” by coming up with a stunt about Chinese threats to his personal security.
