Article 5, Elimination Of All Forms Of Religious Intolerance, United Nations Resolution 48/128 (1993) -
“Urges States to ensure that, in the course of their official duties, members of law enforcement bodies, civil servants, educators and other public officials respect different religions and beliefs and do not discriminate against persons professing other religions or beliefs;”
The Dalai Lama is the head of state of the Tibetan Exile community. To resolve the crisis amongst his people he simply needs to acknowledge and accept his duty of care to all exile Tibetans - not just the ones who share his own beliefs.
The Dalai Lama should reverse the persecution by following the following four points:
- To allow anyone who wishes to practice Dorje Shugden the freedom to do so
- To stop completely the discrimination against Shugden practitioners
- To allow all Shugden monks and nuns who have been expelled to return to their monasteries and nunneries, and to receive the same material and spiritual rights as non-Shugden practitioners
- To write to Tibetan communities throughout the world telling them that they should apply practically the above three points
