Kayang | 卡央

Kayang | 卡央

Choepel and Kayang, both former monks at Kirti monastery who may have been expelled, set fire to themselves along the main road of Ngaba county town. The two young men clasped their hands together and set fire to themselves before security personnel extinguished the flames and took the two to the county’s government-run hospital. Both young men died following the protest. Kayang’s cousin, a Tibetan named Tashi, was one of the Tibetans killed in the Chinese government crackdown in Ngaba in 2008.

The Chinese state media reported the self-immolation in a Xinhua report on October 8, saying that two Tibetans were “slightly injured” after a “self-immolation attempt.”

Kayang | 卡央 was the 7th(7thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.

卡央,安多阿坝(今四川省阿坝藏族羌族自治州阿坝县)查理乡牧民,原为格尔登寺僧人,后遭驻寺工作组驱逐,18岁。
2011年10月7日上午约11点半,卡央在阿坝县洽唐中街与曲培一起自焚,重伤,被军警强行带走,于10月8日在阿坝州人民医院牺牲。
他出生于阿坝县查理乡塔哇村牧民家庭,父亲名叫格桑。爷爷扎西在2008年3月抗议中被军警枪杀。
他在临终时对亲人说:“自己能够为西藏民族献身而感到心满意足,绝不后悔,因此,大家不要为我难过。”这应该是卡央的遗言。
当局禁止家人为他举行宗教仪式,并禁止僧众和民众去他家中悼念。
新华社英文网报道他轻伤,被警察送医院,现已无大碍。中国中央电视台2012年5月播的官方宣传片有提及。

遗言:

“自己能够为西藏民族献身而感到心满意足,绝不后悔,因此,大家不要为我难过。”
