7uagust2012-003Dharamshala: - Tuesday, on 7th of August, at 2.30 PM local Tibet time, 27 years old Dolkar Tso had set herself on fire in front of the stupa in Tsoe Monastery in Tsoe City, Amdo region, north-eastern Tibe

 

Those who witnessed the incident stated that soon after Dolkar set herself ablaze, she shouted in Tibetan: "Free Tibet! Return His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Tibet!"

In the last four years, there have been 48 registered self-immolations in Tibet according to several reports from inside Tibet.

These actions, by the self-immlators, are seen by many tibetans as a peaceful protest against repressive Chinese policies, a demand for more freedom in Tibet and a call for the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama from exile.

Forty-Eight Tibetan people have set themselves on fire in recent years  in Tibet in protest at repressive government policies, charging that Beijing has curbed religious freedoms and that their indigenous culture is being eroded by an influx of Han Chinese, said Mr. Nyima T.J., A Tibetan political analyst.

If Tibetans are satisfied with the judgment given by the Chinese government [then] why so many Tibetan are self-immolating to protest against the government policies? he added.

The communist regime, however, says Tibetans enjoy religious freedom and have benefited from improved living standards brought on by China's economic expansion.
