His Holiness the Karmapa Cleared by Himachal Pradesh Government

11 February, 2011. Dharamsala

This afternoon, the Himachal Pradesh chief secretary Rajwant Sandhu told reporters that, “there is no involvement of the Karmapa. We have reasons to believe that some donations came for the monastery and the Karmapa has nothing to do with that. Monastery functionaries were managing the affairs.”

The chief secretary was also quoted as saying; “The Karmapa is a religious head and has followers across the world. We respect their religious activities. We don’t interfere in any religious affairs. We have full respect for their religious activities and are in no way intending curbing them in any form or manner as also we are aware of the fact that the Karmapa is not involved in any monetary activities or shady benami land deals.”

The Karmapa Office of Administration is grateful to the Indian authorities for investigating the case thoroughly and bringing the truth to the forefront. This fully confirms the confidence His Holiness the Karmapa has himself expressed from the very beginning in the Indian judicial system. We are glad the investigation has put to rest the unfounded rumors that had been circulating. We are very thankful for all the support that has come pouring in from all over India, across the Himalayas and all corners of the world.
