Image result for buddhist monk sets fire to himself

On this day in June of 1963, Vietnamese Mahayana Buddhist monk Thích
Quang Duc burned himself to death at a busy intersection in Saigon. He
was attempting to show that to fight all forms of oppression on equal
terms, Buddhism too, needed to have its martyrs.

Photographer Malcolm Browne captured the scene in Saigon for the
Associated Press, and the stark image quickly became an iconic visual
