The Dalai Lama, who reached Dharamsala after visiting Ladakh, now plans to visit Arunachal Pradesh. The anger of the enraged dragon at the Dalai Lama’s visit may once again increase. Because he has been telling Arunachal as his share. The Dalai Lama revealed his plans for his Arunachal visit at a prayer meeting held for his long life at the main Buddhist temple in McLeodganj.
The Dalai Lama said, “I was born in the Himalayan region.” Therefore, I have had a close association with the people living in the Himalayan regions. My recent visit to Ladakh, Zaskar and other adjoining areas is a testimony to this. At the same time, I also plan to go to Arunachal in the coming days. Earlier the Dalai Lama had visited Arunachal Pradesh in April 2017. China had also reacted strongly to that visit of the Dalai Lama. At that time, China started threatening India directly about the visit of the peace envoy. Then the Chinese Foreign Ministry had said that India should immediately stop the visit of the Dalai Lama. It was said that the visits of the Dalai Lama will increase tension in the border areas. At the same time, China had also lodged a protest by calling the Indian Ambassador in Beijing in this matter.
China has been calling the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso anti-China and separatist. In fact, in 1959, the Dalai Lama was displaced after a rebellion demanding autonomy in Tibet. Then he entered India via Tawang. Later India gave him asylum in Himachal Pradesh. At the same time, the way the Dalai Lama has often raised the question of Tibet’s independence, China has always looked at him and his activities in India with suspicion.
In fact, China considers control of Tawang very important to crush the demand for autonomy in Tibet. Indeed, Tawang has a large Tibetan population. Tawang is an important center of Buddhism as well as the birthplace of the sixth Dalai Lama. Tawang is also important from a strategic point of view because Bhutan can be surrounded on both sides through its possession. With this, China’s access to the Siliguri Corridor will become easier. While both these situations will give advantage to China, it will prove to be very fatal for India’s regional security.
