With China continuing to apparently take side with Pakistan over terrorism and block India’s bid to designate Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar as a terrorist by the United Nations, Indian social media users have started campaigning against the use of Chinese products this festival season.
Angry with China’s support to Pakistan, people are extensively sharing posts on WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter with an appeal to boycott Chinese items. On Saturday, China had extended its technical hold on India’s move to get Pakistan-based Azhar designated as a terrorist by the UN. China did it just two days before the expiry of the hold.
India had earlier said that Uri attack, in which 18 Indian soldiers lost their lives, was carried out by Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists. Social media users were also angered after China blocked the flow of a tributary leading to Brahmaputra river in Assam. This was seen as the Chinese response to surgical strikes carried out by Indian soldiers on Pakistani terror launch pads.
