Why China feels threatened by icon of non-violence

April 7, 2017 By TOI Editorial, THE TIMES OF INDIA

Beijing has kicked up a furious diplomatic row over the Dalai Lama’s ongoing visit to the northeast – including Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh – claiming that the Tibetan spiritual leader’s tour will seriously damage its ties with “obstinate” New Delhi. Such strident pronouncements, bordering on threats, are unbecoming of Beijing. If the latter sincerely believes in cordial India-China relations it would do well to be more diplomatic in its responses. New Delhi, meanwhile, has been absolutely right in stating that the Dalai Lama is free to visit any part of India and Arunachal Pradesh certainly fits this description.[Source]
