HH Dalai Lama is the political leader of all Tibetan speaking communities adhering to different religions. He is respected equally in Ladakh, Baltistan, Bhutan, Sikkim, Mongolia, Arunachal Pradesh and Nepal. The Muslims of Tibet and Tibetan origin regard him as their leader just like Buddhists and Bonpa.
The link to the video below highlights visit of his Holiness the Dalai Lama to Turtuk, a Balti village in Ladakh, where he met the Sufi Muslim Nurbaxshi community. The Sufis of Turtuk gave im a great reception. They extended full support to his cause of bringing peace at global level.
Few months later, twenty Balti children left for Leh to join one of the Tibetan schools where they also learnt Balti language and script. A great depiction of interfaith initiative.
