The founder of Tibet’s Communist Party has pleaded with the Chinese central government to allow the return of Tibet’s spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, to his homeland in an autobiography soon to be published in Hong Kong.
… the 92-year-old, also known as Phunwang, asks the Beijing government to compromise with Tibet’s exile government in Dharamsala, India, and allow the Dalai Lama’s return to Tibet.
Phunwang appealed to former President Hu Jintao and several members of the Communist Party Politburo Standing Committee to “allow the hundreds of thousands of exiled Tibetan compatriots headed by the Dalai Lama to return home, live and work in peace,” he wrote in the book, adding that his advice has been ignored.

There is a funny and wise response by the Dalai Lama with respect to the approach of the Chinese communist party to demand to be in charge of recognizing the next Dalai Lama, which the PRC could not respond to so far: The Dalai Lama said, if they want to recognize the next incarnation of him, they should first do their jobs and recognize the incarnations of their founders, Mao Tse-tung and Deng Xiaoping 😉Embed from Getty Images
