Supporting Anna Hazare‘s anti-graft movement, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama today said corruption is also a form of violence.
“Yes…. Corruption is a very very serious problem…. It is also a form of violence where people try to realise their wrong dreams,” the Dalai Lama said at a function marking the 76th founders day of the Doon School here.
He was asked by a student whether he supported Hazare’s movement against corruption. The Nobel laureate also said that “some countries like China don’t care about corruption and moral values”.
He also asked people to follow Gandhian principles of non-violence and honesty in order to make India more vibrant and rich.
