Addressing reporters in J&K on Monday, His Holiness the Dalai Lama said: "It is very sad. Almost my whole life has been dedicated to promotion of harmony. India, overall, thousand years, you have culture of ‘Ahimsa' (non-violence) and also, culture of harmony among different religious believers.
"Of course, some pockets, some problems here and there, that is understandable. But, overall wonderful. So, every Indian, irrespective of what religious follower and even non- believers, I think we should realise the thousand year old India's traditional Ahimsa and traditional religious harmony, this must be retained," His Holiness told reporters.
