Eerie silence on Karmapa controversy

cHindu and the LiC has been quite silent on the whole Karmapa currency especially the finding of Chinese currency with his assistant.
Mr. Mardi said Karmapa Ugyen Trinley Dorje was not quizzed but only asked about the source of the money. But he said he was not aware of it, Mr. Mardi added. However, his spokesperson asserted that it was money received through offerings and donations and not illegal money. Police had recovered foreign currency equivalent to Rs. 7 crore during raids on the trust backed by Karmapa and arrested the main accountant Shakti Lama.

Hmm if Chinese currency was found with the donations, it raises interesting questions about the "religious" intentions of the Chinese government.
