I am talking about this topic especially with regards to the Tibetans. They are all from the Buddhist faith which renounces violence. But this has cost them their land and made them refugees with a culture on the brink of extinction because of the systematic effort from the Chinese. My question, could not have the Dalai Lama as a religious and spiritual head of the Tibetan people issued a reversal of the non violent belief and urged the Tibetans to take up arms and fight for their existence rather than sacrificing it? After so many years, the Dalai Lama as more or less given up on an independent Tibet and resigned to the Chinese being their masters. But if he had 50 years ago in his capacity as the religious head given a change in law as his people were being wiped out, he might have made sure that Tibet survived as an independent country and the world would have supported that.
