World is starting to recognize how China is a big bully, lead by a rogue and dangerous leader, Xi Jinping. China as the world knows is responsible for the current Covid Virus crisis. The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in over 400K deaths worldwide and over 7k deaths in India. Not to mention the unimaginable pain our daily wage workers have to go through because of this crisis created by the Chinese. In the midst of all this crisis, it is very typical of the Chinese leadership to further create problems for India by try to encroach on the Indian side of the LAC or the current agreed upon positions. China is simultaneously engaged in some dispute or the other with USA, Australia, Taiwan, Japan, Indonesia and many other countries. It has also recently passed laws to suppress voice in Hong Kong. What gives the Government of China such clout and power? Its economic standing! China is a communist country and recently Xi Jinping has managed to get sweeping powers approved from CCP. I will go into much more details on this topic and the power struggles in China as not everybody is happy in China with Xi, considerign the disrepute Xi has brought upon China. A lot of Chinese citizens have died too.
The intent and purpose of this particular blog post is to highlight how India can hurt the Chinese government’s economic interest and express solidarity with our brave soldiers fighting selflessly to safeguard the nation. This the least Indian citizens can do. By using Apps funded by Chinese investment you are directly aiding the Chinese army against Indian soldiers.
You should certainly watch these Videos from Sonam Wangchuk
What Mr. Sonam Wangchuk is advocating does absolutely make sense. In simple terms stop using any Application which benefits the communist party of India which is using your money to fight against our soldiers and our nation. Eventually the goal is to give up any Chinese Hardware as well but that will require some massive effort on a national scale. We are doing this to support India and the innocent people who have suffered because of disastrous Chinese Governments policies.
So what Chinese apps and goods should we Boycott?
Ola, Paytm, Swiggy, BYJU and many more to say the least. Basically anyone with a Chinese investment is not doing our country any favours. Yes these companies are Indian and they will suffer a bit but the message is very loud and clear, Stop aiding China even indirectly. Money spent with these companies is indirectly benefiting Chinese Communist Party and the People’s Liberation Army in arming themselves against our Defence Forces. Eventually the Indian companies which have a Chinese investment can get the Chinese investors to sell their stake and be on their way. So while they might suffer in the short term, in the long term they are to gain with your actions and so does India. Furthermore I do hope countries and people worldwide take similar actions which will help stop the funding of PLA. Chinese Communist Party is the world’s biggest employer. Their clandestine ways of involvement in the Chinese companies is well know.
From Construction, Shipping to building Apps and manufacturing the CCP is directly profiting from these activities and using those gains as a war chest to wage a war against democratic countries like India, Japan, USA, Canada, Australia . etc.. The list is literally large.
While the Indian government cannot appeal for such actions we as responsible citizens are duty bound towards our motherland to support such initiatives.
