Dalai Lama says India a model of religious harmony
NEW DELHI (AP) - The Dalai Lama says the enduring harmony between India s many religions is proof to the world that different communities can live peacefully and solve problems together.

The Dalai Lama was speaking to leaders from nine religious groups invited for two days of meetings to mull some of India s biggest problems, including poverty, attacks on women, environmental degradation and communal violence. He stressed that there was no justification for fighting in the name of faith, calling it "unthinkable."
