Dalai Lama Apologizes for His Statement on India Paksitan’s Partition

Dalai Lama Apologizes for His Statement on India Paksitan’s Partition

Earlier this week, Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama had on Wednesday said that India’s Partition would not have happened if Mahatma Gandhi’s wish of Jinnah becoming the Prime Minister had materialised.

This statement of the 83-year-old monk landed him in a controversy.

“My statement has created a controversy; if I said something wrong I apologise,” said the Dalai Lama on Friday, while speaking to the media in Goa.

The 14th Dalai Lama made these remarks while addressing an event at the Goa Institute of Management.

“Mistakes always happen. Now, look at India. I think Mahatma Gandhi ji was very much willing to give prime ministership to Jinnah. But Pandit Nehru refused. I think Pandit Nehru’s was a little bit self-centred. Pandit Nehru, I know very well, was a very experienced person, very wise, but sometimes mistakes happen,” he said.
