Wait, did you just imply you want more Tibetans to self-immolate?
With that picture? Yes.
I’m shocked to see that some people can still say shit like this. How so fucking irresponsible. After Jamphel Yeshe’s self-immolation I wrote
What I do remember, as mentioned by a reader, are all the discussions that were happening online by Tibetans in exile after the immolation’s in Tibet. I remember many were, maybe in the heat of the passion and desperation, indirectly, some directly, were encouraging similar actions to take place in India.
Previously I wrote about how frustrated these declarations were. I get the frustration, but who’s to say that those momentary declarations, or our collective silence, did not contribute to Jamphel’s decision to risk his own life?
Tibetans in Tibet have China controlling their every move. Those of us outside, what’s our excuse? Someone such as Jamphel, in exile, should not be feeling like the only option to give voice to what’s happening inside Tibet is through his own self-immolation.
2 years later, I don’t have to speculate anymore.
A lot of people have shown me this post with outrage. They also mentioned how he has deleted all comments that question what he wrote. I guess a coward would do that after asking, excuse me, implying, other people to risk their, not his own, lives.
