So what exactly is it all about? It's hard to filter the reports of what exactly the issue is in the media, some say its a violation of religious freedom, some say it is necessary, some call Dorje Shugden devotees as terrorists, some say they are working for the People's Republic of China. Or is it a developing crazy sect? Why has the Dalai Lama banned the practice of Dorje Shugden?

Here's a link to an article on the website of the Tibetan Government in Exile. It's rather long, but it's the most even-handed description of the controversy that I've seen.

link -> The Shuk-Den Affair: Origins of a Controversy

There's a thread (currently dormant) in the Buddhism Discussion forum devoted to this. If you want to persue this any further, you can read statements from current and past devotees of Shuk-Den there.
