There is some truth in it. It is the new game of social engineering being played out by powerful countries like U.S.A. For example, U.K. & U.S.A. used Buddhist monks both in Burma and Tibet against the establishments there to destabilize and overthrow the entrenched governments hostile to the West and the Americans. It is a different matter that it did not succeed. But it definitely succeeded in sending a powerful message to the most ruthless regimes that they are not invincible. India cannot remain immune to such tactics where there are dime a dozen willing individuals and organizations to take the fake causes for fake purposes.
