New Delhi: Senior BJP leader L K Advani
on Sunday hoped that Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama and other
people of the community living in exile will be able to return
to their hometown in an "honourable" and "dignified way" and
build the destiny of Tibet.

The BJP veteran said though a lot of atrocities have
been committed and much of the cultural and spiritual heritage
of Tibet damaged - "most of all during China`s shockingly
mis-named Cultural Revolution (1967-77)" -Tibet continues to
be the holy land of the Tibetan people.

"...I do hope and pray that a day will come soon when
His Holiness the Dalai Lama and other Tibetan people living in
forced exile are able to go back to their Home Land and Holy
Land in an honourable and dignified way, and thereafter be
able to build the future destiny of Tibet," he said in a post
on his blog.

The Dalai Lama and thousands of Tibetans live in exile
in India after being forced out of the country in the 1960s.
China calls Dalai Lama a "separatist" and talks between the
two sides have failed.
