Characteristically, NKT lied about the lawsuit filed by Shugdenites against the Dalai Lama.

NKT boasted that the Dalai Lama lost the lawsuit and was admonished by the high court in India.

In fact, this did not occur.


Dharamsala, April 21: The Delhi High Court has dismissed the harassment and maltreatment charges filed by the Delhi-based Dorjee Shugden Devotees’ Charitable and Religious Society against the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

In an order dated April 5, 2010, Justice S. Muralidhar dismissed the writ petition and application filed by the Dhoegyal society on the grounds that the allegations of violence and harassment were "vague averments" and that the raised issues "do not partake of any public law character and therefore are not justiciable in proceedings under Article 226 of the Constitution."

Citing "absence of any specific instances of any such attacks" on propitiators of the highly controversial Dorjee Shugden deity, the Court noted the counter affidavit submitted by the respondents, referring to "an understanding reached whereby it was left to the monks to decide whether they would want to be associated with the practices of Dorjee Shugden."

Closing the doors on the possibility of similar complaints in the future, Justice Muralidhar concluded that the "matters of religion and the differences among groups concerning propitiation of religion, cannot be adjudicated upon by a High Court in exercise of its writ jurisdiction."
