The Dalai Lama has been caught on video kissing a young Indian boy on the lips at a Buddhist event and telling him to “suck my tongue.”
The disturbing video was posted online, prompting outrage in India and raising question marks about whether there are any world leaders who are not pedophiles.
Defenders of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama are claiming that the Buddhist leader was “joking around” with the young boy. However, victims of child sexual abuse have pointed out that being sexualized by a powerful adult is not a laughing matter.
The Dalai Lama, regarded as the spiritual leader of Tibet, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 for his non-violent struggle for the liberation of Tibet.
Since then he has become an environmental activist, working with Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum to further the climate change agenda. He has also made numerous appearances with Greta Thunberg, endorsing her as a young prophet.
The Dalai Lama also counts Hillary Clinton and pop star Lady Gaga as close friends, having made a series of public appearances with them in recent years.
The 20-minute meeting, which took place after the Tibetan spiritual leader’s appearance at the 84th annual Conference of Mayors in Indianapolis, was live-streamed on Facebook and received 160,000 likes. (NewsPunch)
