Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama prays at the Jama Masjid on Sunday (June 1)

Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama on Sunday (June 1) led a special prayer for world peace at the historic Jama Masjid here and said it is regrettable that Muslims are being targeted in the name of terrorism.

The Dalai Lama, who was here in the city to participate in an international Anti-Terrorism Conference, was accompanied by several foreign dignitaries and people of different faiths. At the special prayer, the Dalai Lama said Islam has always been identified with peace and Muslims “are peace loving people.”

“Muslims are one of the most peace loving people in the world,” he said, adding “it is regrettable that Muslims are targeted in the name of terrorism.” The Dalai Lama also said a person who engages in terror activities cannot be a true Muslim.

“Muslims cannot be terrorists. If a person is a terrorist, he cannot be a Muslim,” the Tibetan spiritual leader said. Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and senior officials at the Jama Masjid were present at the prayer meet.
