It has come to the attention of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa and Tsurphu Labrang (the Office of Karmapa's Administration) that a signature campaign to a global petition, addressed to the Government of India under the heading "Free His Holiness the Karmapa", is being circulated on the internet.
In this petition some false accusations are made. While it is true that the proposed Karmapa's Dharma tour to Europe in mid-May was not approved, it is not correct that the Karmapa is kept under any confinement or duress in India nor is he under any harassment. Therefore, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa and Tsurphu Labrang categorically deny these unfounded accusations.
Ever since His Holiness's arrival in India in 2000, the Karmapa has received every kindness and consideration from the Government and the people of India. He is allowed free movement throughout the country except to a few border areas.
The Karmapa and Tsurphu Labrang are grateful for all the generosity, kindness and assistance received from the people and the Government of India.
