Bud­dhist abuse claim

The Sunday Times - - World -

FOUR peo­ple who say they suf­fered sex­ual, phys­i­cal or psy­cho­log­i­cal abuse at the hands of Ti­betan Bud­dhist teach­ers have handed the Dalai Lama ac­counts of mis­treat­ment, ask­ing him to act.

A group us­ing the hash­tag “metooguru” gath­ered 1300 sig­na­tures calling for the meet­ing so they could give the spir­i­tual leader their tes­ti­monies.

The four, from the Nether­lands and Bel­gium, met the Dalai Lama on his visit to Rot­ter­dam and say he pledged to take ac­tion.
