Dawa Dhondup | 达瓦顿珠

A Tibetan man was stopped from immolating himself Sunday in this Himachal Pradesh town where the Dalai Lama has its government-in-exile, police said.

A police official said the attempt was made as hundreds of Tibetans gathered to mark the anniversary of a failed 1959 uprising against Chinese rule.

Dawa Dhondup, taking part in the procession through the streets of Dharamshala, consumed petrol but was overpowered by the others before he could kill himself, Superintendent of Police Balbir Thakur told IANS.

The 30-year-old Dhondup, a roadside vendor in McLeod Ganj, was taken to hospital.

Dawa Dhondup | 达瓦顿珠 was the 7th(3rdin India) Tibetan who attempted self-immolatin (since 2012) but failed.

达瓦顿珠,卫藏日喀则地区定日县人,2001年流亡印度,曾在索嘎成人学校就读,平时在达兰萨拉麦罗肯吉镇以售卖糌粑为生。30岁。
2013年3月10日,藏人抗暴54周年纪念日。上午11点多,正当达兰萨拉僧俗民众游行时,达瓦顿珠往身上淋满汽油准备点火自焚时,被藏人们及时发现并阻止,随后被送往医院 。
达瓦顿珠后来对媒体说:“我很失落,至今在西藏境内已有上百名藏人自焚,抗议中共政府的压制,而在境外,比如尼泊尔流亡藏人同样面临着极大的压力,连自焚藏人的遗体都不归还给藏人,在印度的流亡藏人生活也不尽人意,基于这些原因我决定要自焚,早前就买好了汽油和一种毒药,计划在今天西藏抗暴日喝下毒药后自焚,并已留下遗书,但遗憾的是被阻拦。”
达瓦顿珠还说:“我在遗书中强调,当前西藏人民的艰难处境,呼吁境内外藏人齐心协力共同奋斗,祈愿达赖喇嘛尊者早日返回西藏,祈愿境内外藏人早日团聚在雪域西藏,迎请尊者返回西藏,西藏重获自由是藏人行政中央司政洛桑森格的职责。”
