Sangay Tashi | 桑杰扎西

According to other sources, Sangay Tashi shouted slogans calling for the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the release of all Tibetan political prisoners, including the 11th Panchen Lama, while engulfed in flames. Local Tibetans then carried his charred body to a nearby house.

Sangay Tashi arrived in Sangkhog town earlier that day with his friends. Before setting himself on fire, he reportedly called one of his relatives and told him that he had decided to set himself on fire for the cause of Tibet. Before his relative could carry on the conversation, Sangay Tashi hung up the phone and switched it off.

By the time Sangay Tashi’s family members arrived in Sangkhog, he had already carried out his self-immolation protest.

Sangay Tashi | 桑杰扎西 was the 93th(90thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.

桑杰扎西,安多拉卜让(今甘肃省甘南藏族自治州夏河县)桑科乡牧民,18岁。
2012年11月27日晚上,桑杰扎西在桑科乡政府前自焚,呼喊“让达赖喇嘛返回西藏!”、“释放第十一世班禅喇嘛为首的所有西藏政治犯!”当场牺牲。
当地民众将他的遗体抬到桑科乡一间新房中,由僧侣主持、大批民众参加,举行了超度祈福法会。 他是夏河县县桑科乡沃热村人,父亲名叫南阔,母亲名叫卓玛措,还有四个兄弟姐妹。他之前在桑科乡小学就读过四年,后辍学返家,以放牧为生。
他在自焚前给亲戚打电话说:“今天我要为民族事业自焚。”之后,以身浴火。这句话应该是桑杰扎西的遗言。他自焚之地是11月26日图旺嘉在该乡汽车站自焚牺牲的附近。

遗言:

“让达赖喇嘛返回西藏!”、“释放第十一世班禅喇嘛为首的所有西藏政治犯!”
