False Panchen Lama, a "Chinese puppet", his words mean "nothing"
Beijing's hand-picked Panchen Lama Gyaltsen Norbu visited Lhasa where he slammed anti-Communist protesters, "unfit" in his words to be called men of religion. A young monk tells AsiaNews that "he is a poor puppet in Chinese hands" living "in a gilded jail". Without any understanding of Tibet, he is "forced to play to Beijing's tune. We feel compassion for him." Nonetheless, his statements are part of the Communist party's strategy to decide what is orthodox in every religion.

The ultimate goal is to influence the recognition of Tibetan Buddhism’s next leader. Beijing’s phoney Panchen Lama is back in the limelight.

If there really is peace in Tibet, Beijing should free the true Panchen Lama
For 14 years, Gedhun Choekyi Nyima, the 11th Panchen Lama recognized by the Dalai Lama, has been sequestered together with his family. Beijing continues to say that he is "doing well," and that there is religious freedom in Tibet: the liberation of the true Panchen Lama could be the only credible sign of this.
