Tenzin Khedup | 丹增克珠

Two young Tibetans self-immolated in China’s Qinghai province on Wednesday as they protested against Beijing’s rule in Tibetan-populated areas and called for the return of Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, sources said.

Radio Free Asia: Carrying Tibetan flags and shouting pro-independence slogans, former monk Tenzin Khedup, 24, and Ngawang Norphel, 22, torched themselves in Dzatoe (in Chinese, Zaduo) township, Tridu (Chenduo) county, in the Yulshul (Yushu) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, the exile sources said.

Tenzin Khedup died on the spot while his colleague, Ngawang Norphel was badly burned and is in serious condition at a hospital, according to Lobsang Sangay, a monk in India who is from the Zekar monastery in Yushul, quoting eyewitnesses.

Tenzin Khedup | 丹增克珠 was the 45th(42thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.

丹增克珠,康称多(今青海省玉树藏族自治州称多县)牧民,曾为当地赛康寺僧人,24岁。
2012年6月20日下午3时许,丹增克珠与友人阿旺诺培在称多县扎朵镇高举印有雪山狮子旗的图片自焚,呼喊“西藏独立!”、“让达赖喇嘛返回西藏!”当场牺牲。遗体由赛康寺僧人送往寺院,于23日在军警严密包围和监视下,在寺院内举行了火葬仪式。两人在自焚前留下遗言。
丹增克珠的父亲名叫勒珠,母亲名叫吉尊。
新华社英文网简单报道有两人自焚,一名死亡,一名“受重伤”。

遗言:

“对我俩来说,没有能力从西藏的宗教和文化上出力,在经济上,也没有帮助西藏人民的能力,所以我俩为了西藏民族,特别是为了尊者达赖喇嘛能够永驻世间并且尽快返回西藏,而选择了自焚的方式。告知和我俩一样的西藏青年们,我们希望而且也相信大家会立誓,永远不在藏人间进行内斗,要团结一致,守护住西藏的民族赤诚。”
