Doklam standoff is one of the most crucial point in India-China relationship. It is a Military standoff, however both the sides have tried their hands on different kind of strategies to make other side blink.
China usually takes aggressive stance against any country it is having an issue with. The same story goes this time as well, and we have seen many ‘hollow’ threats and other acts to push India to some uncomfortable territory. China tried everything possible in their arsenal, be it sending a daily threats via its National Media, be it meeting with all the opposition leaders of India without informing the GOI, or be it threatening India of unfavorable consequences in event of any further aggression, though every tactic of China was failed miserably this time.
However the best one was raising the issue of religious intolerance in India. China specifically raised issue of ‘so called’ religious suppression of Muslims in India and in a way taunt India for recent incidents against Muslims. While making such ridiculous china forget to its own record of religious and human rights suppression in its own backyard.
China forgot that it has started an unofficial war against Islam and Muslims on its own land.
Apparently, China realizes what the West doesn’t. – Bet you never thought you’d read that here – Namely, that Islam is very dangerous. It’s kind of ironic that the oppressive nation sees what free nations don’t.
China government has unofficially formulated a policy to control the Islam and its followers. Chinese Government thinks that the religion/political ideology have been given an inch, they’ve taken a mile. Like a rabid dog, once it gets strong enough, it will bite us. So what is China doing? It’s declaring an all-out war to make sure Islam doesn’t take over, and never gains the strength to attack them in the future.
Here is what Chinese Government is doing to control Islam and Muslims
– Female head-coverings has been banned.
– Muslim Men are discouraged from growing long beards.
– Muslims are not allowed to observe fast during Ramjan.
– China has banned several Muslim names for babies.
– Even Islamic restaurants are forced to sell cigarettes and drinks.
– Even names such as Islam, Quran, Saddam and Mecca, as well as references to the star and crescent moon symbol have been completely banned.
– They must display them prominently. Any business owner who does not follow this order…will lose their business and may be penalized heavily.
China is ruled by a Communist government and they have complete control over Media and that’s the reason why we hardly get such news from the mainland. We have seen the suppressive capabilities of china while dealing with Tibet. As per unofficial estimates, hundreds of Monks have self-immolated in a mark of protest against the communist government.
So it looks very laughable when China preaches a democratic country like India, where Human rights and religious rights hold utmost priority for the Government. And what is more astonishing is, China calls itself an all-weather Friend of Pakistan, which is an Islamic nation.
