Tibetan community in Toronto marks moment of silence for woman lit on fire in bus attack
Toronto's Tibetan community held a moment of silence on Wednesday for a woman who died this week after she was set on fire on a transit bus in June.
So confirmed Tibetan on Tibetan crime.
I can't imagine the Toronto Tibetan community is that big so I'm wondering if this attack was not as random as initially believed.
If you look at the donations in the GoFundMe page, a lot of the donors have Tibetan names (especially the common Tibetan name Tenzin, which was also the first name of the perpetrator). This has clearly shaken the community a lot :(
What I find incredibly odd is why they still haven't released the name of this poor woman.
I heard in the news this is being investigated as a hate crime. I wonder why considering the similar nationalities of both victim and perpetrator and the fact that typically this would be considered a random attack. It makes me wonder if there’s more to the victim or the perp and if there was any sort of political activism that either was into. The only thing I can think of is something to do with Tibet-China relations. One may have been pro-Tibet, the other pro-China? I don’t know I’m just speculating. None of it justifies such horrible acts anyways and it’s still very sad to see.
