New Delhi, India, 8 April 2016 - Before leaving for the American Embassy School this morning, His Holiness the Dalai Lama gave an interview to Sanjoy Majumder of the BBC. Majumder began by asking how we can defeat violence in the name of religion. His Holiness told him that while there may be a need to take short term measures, we also have to think about how to stop this in the long run. One way is to increase contacts between people of different faiths to improve understanding between them, bearing in mind that all religions carry the same message of love and observe tolerance and forgiveness to protect it.
