Dalai Lama stands up for Islam
by David Masters
Speaking this week at a public lecture in Lehigh University, Pennsylvania, Buddhist leader, the Dalai Lama, stood up for Islam and defended the peaceful credentials of the religion.
In response to a question about religious fundamentalism, and with 5,000 people listening, the Dalai Lama said that it is ‘totally wrong’ and ‘unfair’ to label Islam a violent religion.
Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader added that since September 11th 2001 he has made a point of reaching out to Muslims.
