Indo-China Conflict & the Role of America

Published

on

At a time when the whole world is busy controlling COVID-19, the long-running border dispute between the world’s two most populous and nuclear-armed countries, India and China, has intensified. The disputed Himalayan border region has been the scene of recent skirmishes between Indian and Chinese forces. Including the exchange of fists. It also added to US unrest, but President Trump’s offer of mediation has been sidelined by both countries.

According to analysts, the chances of a major confrontation between the nuclear-armed rivals are slim at the moment. However such incidents could widen and deepen the gulf between the two countries. Relations between the two countries have generally been stable in recent years, but there have been some complications over time. Because, on the one hand, China is challenging the status of the United States as India’s top trading partner. On the other hand, India’s Hindu nationalist government is undermining China’s military and economic development in the region. And on this point, the US government is also sympathetic to the Indian government.

For a time, China and India were economically equal. However, the overall progress achieved over the last 40 years is not being digested by India. Remember that at present China’s GDP is five times higher than India’s.

The recent border dispute arose at the point where India was defeated in 1962. At a time when relations between the United States and China are at an all-time low, Chinese experts are skeptical of Trump’s offer of mediation. Because of the rise of China, Washington is trying to use India for its own ends by pulling India towards the alliance of China’s neighbors.

Leading Chinese newspaper Global Times wrote in an editorial that Washington is looking forward to taking advantage of the China-India conflict. And whenever a dispute arises between India and China, the United States tries to air it. The US is trying to turn India against China. However, contrary to US wishes, India and China have tried to reduce the temperature through diplomatic and military channels.

According to the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, the two sides have agreed to resolve the situation in the border areas peacefully. This agreement is based on the agreement between the top leadership of the two countries. Under which peace and stability are essential for the overall development of bilateral relations in the border areas of the two countries.

However, with the rapid rise of social media and the dominance of the Hindu nationalist party in India, the border dispute could escalate. Border tensions between the two countries last escalated in 2017. Currently, there is tension in both countries because of COVID-9. India is also among the countries that are blaming China for the spread of COVID-19.

Thousands of Chinese and Indian troops are reported to be camping just a few hundred yards from each other, and there have been reports of heatwaves between the two. In this regard, US analysts say that China is currently in an aggressive mood, reminiscent of 1962. At the time, Mao Zedong was unhappy with India. He wanted to send a message that China could use force if needed.

According to US analysts, China’s action carries the same message to India and others. It is that China has the capability to deal with several security issues simultaneously. According to US analysts, China has adopted an aggressive foreign policy in recent months in the wake of self-criticism over COVID-19. Another reason is bad relations with the United States. The move to protect India’s border is in line with the current trend in Chinese foreign policy. It is a clear message for the growing partnership between the United States and India over the past few years and for a united front against China.

However, President Trump says Washington would be happy to help. “We have informed both India and China that the United States is ready to mediate in their growing border dispute,” Trump said in a tweet. However, neither India nor China accepted the offer. However, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi also discussed the issue with Trump in a phone call. The Indian media reports quoted New Delhi officials as saying that they wanted Washington to be present on the occasion. On the other hand, the Chinese Foreign Ministry has made it clear that there is no need for any third party to intervene. According to the Foreign Ministry, there are concrete mechanisms and means of communication between China and India. Both sides are capable of resolving relevant issues through dialogue and consultation.

Some analysts also see the current developments in the context of Pak-India tensions and Pak-China friendship. They see China’s action as tantamount to China’s support for Pakistan in the context of Pak-India border tensions.

It may be recalled that India is constructing its strategic road in the Galan Valley to connect the region with an airstrip. To this end, in August last year, India unilaterally separated Ladakh from occupied Kashmir and declared it a federal territory. China has strongly condemned the move and raised the issue with the UN Security Council.

Russia Released the video of the “TSAR BOMBA” (King of Bombs) Explosion

Published

on

Russia has released a video of the world’s most powerful explosion, which was carried out experimentally in October 1961 during the Soviet era. It was actually a hydrogen bomb with an explosive power of 3,300 times that of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima.

The bomb, dubbed the “Tsar Bomba” (King of Bombs), was dropped on an island near the North Pole and detonated in the air at an altitude of 4 km above the ground.

With an explosive power of 50 megatons (50 million tons) of TNT, this hydrogen bomb is considered to be the most powerful bomb in human history, designed by the famous Soviet scientist Andrei Sakharov. This is the same Andrei Sakharov who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1975 after defecting from the Soviet Union.

The 40-minute video was uploaded to YouTube by the Russian Atomic Energy Agency a few days ago, in which the countdown to the bombing begins at 22 minutes and 22 seconds:

The blast was so intense and large that it could be seen from a distance of a thousand kilometers, while its heat was felt at a distance of 250 kilometers.

The cloud formed by the explosion of this hydrogen bomb was so high that it reached an altitude of about 700 km, that is, the point where the Earth’s atmosphere ends and space begins.

We don’t know if there is an even more powerful hydrogen bomb in the world, but we do know that it was the most powerful experimental explosion in human history.

It should be noted that the original and technical name of the hydrogen bomb is “thermonuclear bomb”, the explosion of which emits tremendous energy in the form of light, heat, and shock waves but the emission of radioactive rays is much lower than that of a normal atomic bomb.

Father Sold his Daughter To Buy A Smartphone and Motorcycle

Published

We often fall in with stories on social media and news channels highlighting the brutal face of the mentally sick people of the society.

Although, the crime rate has been declined amidst the coronavirus pandemic but a few people are out there to show their bestiality to the world by committing heinous conduct.

According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), an average of 80 murders, 289 abductions, and 91 rapes were reported across the country in 2018 in India on a daily basis.

A new heart-wrenching incident took place in the Chikkaballhar district of India. An inexorable father sold his daughter, who was only three years old, to buy a smartphone and motorcycle.

He sold his daughter to a childless couple for INR 100,000. And he bought a smartphone for INR 15,000 and a motorcycle for INR 50,000 with the money he got.

The parents had tried to sell the baby to a family in Bengaluru when she was born, but their plan failed as the hospital authority meddled. After this, another person got the wind of the situation and made a deal with them on the behest of a childless couple in another village.

After the man used all the money, his neighbor grew skeptical, and they found out that his daughter had not been at home. They informed the police who inquired some villagers including the mother of the baby. The child welfare committee found the girl and a case has been filed against the couple.

The father took to his heel but the mother was incarcerated. The authority interrogated her and she brought to the light that her husband had intimidated her that’s why she allowed selling her daughter.

What could be the rhyme and reason that goaded the parents to sell their own blood? Either they are mentally sick or the financial problems made them sell their three years old baby.

Why Shouldn’t Pakistan Accept Israel?

Published

on

Israel is a completely illegitimate state and was created by occupying Muslim territories. The blood of millions of Muslims was shed for the establishment of this state. Due to which the Muslim world did not establish relations with Israel and refused to recognize it, calling it an illegitimate state. But gradually some Muslim countries continued to accept it under the pressure of the USA or some personal interests. Some Muslim countries have recognized Israel while many countries have opposed this state, of which Pakistan is at the top. A few other Muslim countries also want to establish relations with Israel but have not yet dared to take such a step due to the fear of retaliation from their public. This illegitimate state of Israel was established on a purely ideological basis, so our differences with it are also ideological.

Pakistan is also an ideological state, the ideological basis of which is only Islam. Pakistan came into existence in the name of Islam and in the name of this religion, the people here got freedom. The survival of this country also lies in protecting Islamic ideology. If we look at the relations of Pakistan with other states, then the ideology of Islam is also driven in them and we establish relations with other states on an ideological basis. One of the states’ relations is with Israel. To date, Pakistan has not recognized Israel and before the current government, no one talked about recognizing this illegitimate state, let alone thought about it. But some members of the current government have spoken out, and Asma Hadid, a female member of parliament, has openly called for recognition of Israel and has brutally distorted Islamic references.

However, our relationship with Israel is purely ideological. Some people say that we should establish relations with Israel because it will benefit us. We should not be hostile to Israel for no reason. What has it done to us? What is our enmity with it? We must build relations with this country in view of our gains and losses. Such objections or arguments are often heard by our thinkers regarding the recognition of Israel. In the service of these gentlemen, it is kindly requested that ideology is also something. Religion, creed, and nation also have a status, Islamic brotherhood is also important topics of Islam. Should we put them all behind us for our small gain and loss? How much economic benefit will we get from establishing relations with Israel? What progress will we make? What benefits can Israel provide us that no other country is able to give us?

We are not making progress because of our poor policies, corruption, and mistakes. This is not to blame for the deterioration of relations with Israel. By establishing relations with Israel, we will not be able to gain any material benefit because our past experiences show that we have established relations with the United States. We have relations with many other countries but we are still in turmoil. We couldn’t get anything out of anyone. Therefore, by establishing relations with Israel as well, we will not be able to achieve anything but stifling our ideology. This will only hurt the interests of the Muslim Ummah and will demoralize the countries that are against Israel.

Therefore, we must protect our ideas and persevere them, and work with patience and perseverance in the face of any difficulties or troubles that may arise. We must put the interests of the Muslim Ummah before the petty personal interests. If all Muslim countries had taken the stand together and stood up against Israel, it would not have the courage to look up to Muslim countries today. But the Muslim countries’ own weaknesses gave it strength. Now the UAE has established relations with Israel and put back the interests of the Muslim Ummah and Islamic ideology. It remains to be seen how much they get benefits and how much relief they bring to the Palestinians.

It is futile to expect any good from non-Muslims, especially Jews and Christians. Therefore, Muslims should emphasize unity among themselves. Brotherhood and love should be promoted.
