Himachal police on Monday banned the use of electronic gadgets including personal FM radio during Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama’s sermons.
As per reports, the decision to ban the use of electronic gadgets was taken after reviewing review the security of the Dalai Lama that held at the office of Superintendent of Police Dharamshala on August 16.
From now on, only those FM radios that are provided by the Tibetan Security will be allowed during prayer or teaching session.
Himachal Police had reviewed the security of Dalai Lama, his official palace besides establishments of the Tibetan government-in-exile, headquartered at Mcleodganj in Dharamshala several times in past few months after the arrest of a suspected Chinese spy. Police officials had taken these decisions after they found some loopholes in the security of spiritual leaders, the Dalai Lama and the 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorjee.
Himachal police have already strengthened security pickets around the Dalai Lama’s palace and the Gyuto Tantric Monastic University, where the Karmapa resides.
Meanwhile, Central Tibetan Administration has even requested the police to look into the feasibility to add chemical detectors to his security too as Indian government has extended Z-plus category security to the Dalai Lama.
