Leaders condemned the malicious intent of vested interests to defame His Holiness The Dalai Lama in order to please their benefactors and requested Government of India to take action against media organisations and celebrities who spread propaganda against the Dalai Lama.
President LBA Thupstan Chhewang warned that LBA will intensify protest if no action is taken against those defaming HH Dalai Lama before G20 summit. He also appealed to the public to unsubscribe to some TV channels that had been spreading manipulated video against the Dalai Lama. Leaders also announced that celebrities who too defamed The Dalai Lama will not be allowed to shoot in Ladakh.
