It is pertinent as a form of protest against the Chinese occupation of Tibet, more than 159 Tibetans since 2009 have set themselves on fire, reported Phayul.
Chinese troops occupied Tibet in 1950 and later annexed it. The 1959 Tibetan uprising witnessed violent clashes between Tibetan residents and Chinese forces.
