Reasons and Background of Recent Indo-China Border Conflicts

Published

on

The border dispute between India and China over Ladakh and its adjoining areas is nothing new. The two countries also fought a war in 1962 over these border disputes. But it is also a fact that despite the existence of these border disputes, not a single bullet has been fired between the two countries since 1975.

Despite the recent border disputes and the stand-off of troops in Ladakh and adjoining areas between the two countries, not a single shot has been fired. Poles and stones have been used by both sides. The two countries have a tacit agreement that does not allow the use of bullets and other weapons.

In contrast, in the border disputes between Pakistan and India, the issue starts with bullets and heavy artillery shelling. India’s attitude and strategy on Pakistan’s border are indeed way different from China’s Border. With the border dispute with Pakistan, the Indian leadership also start verbal shelling. Statements are made that create a war hysteria, but this is not the case with China.

India is also alleging that China has entered Indian territory, but there is complete silence on the part of India. So far, the Indian Foreign Office has not issued a single statement, while the Chinese Foreign Office has issued several statements. The Indian Media is making noise that China has entered Indian territory, but so far no protest has been carried out by calling the Chinese ambassador.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi indeed had a long meeting with his three military chiefs a few days ago to review the situation, but no statement was issued neither from the Indian army or Prime Minister Modi. If this was the case with Pakistan, there would have been an uproar by now, but India’s approach towards China is more with restraint and patience. So far, India’s strategy is clear that they want to avoid any kind of war with China. India is trying to handle the issue through back-channel diplomacy.

Currently, there are tensions between India and China in four places. There are three locations in Ladakh which are adjacent to Kashmir. When India had recently abolished the special status of Kashmir, it had also announced the separation of Ladakh from Kashmir. However, there are currently severe border tensions between India and China at three key locations in Ladakh. However, the fourth place is NUKU La Pass, which is between the Indian state of Sikkim and the Chinese territory of Tibet. There has been a disagreement between India and China over Tibet, so this position and the tensions are very important.

China claims Tibet an integral part of its territory, while India has sheltered the Dalai Lama, the head of Tibet’s self-styled exiled government. But despite the dispute, the two countries are trading at $92 billion and China has invested heavily in India. China also claims that its 90,000 sq km area is under Indian control, which China wants to take back. In this situation, there are two types of borders between India and China. One is the Line of Actual Control and the other is the CCL (Chinese claim of land).

There is also a dispute between India and China over Pangong Lake in Ladakh. Two-thirds of the 134-kilometer-long lake is currently occupied by China, but despite this, there is still tension on the lake. Various places along this lake are called “Fingers”. India’s position is that the border starts with finger number 2 while China’s position is that the border starts with finger number 8.

On the occasion of Kargil, when India withdrew all its troops from here to fight Pakistan, China had built a road at Finger No. 4, which has made it easier for China to patrol here by vehicles. Kargil may or may not have benefited Pakistan, but China did benefit from building this road, and China’s position was strengthened. Since then, India has been trying to build a road near Finger No. 2 in response. China has strong reservations about this and it does not want India to build this road, because, after that, India will also be in a position to patrol the area with vehicles. That is why China has now multiplied its military presence near Finger No. 3, building military bunkers to prevent India from building the road. The position of India here is getting very weak now. If India does not build this road, this lake will get out of its hands.

Galwan Valley has been peaceful since 1962. This is the only area where China’s CCL and LAC are almost the same, so there is no border dispute. However, India is building roads near the LAC in the region, which China has strong reservations about. China’s position is that the construction of these roads will give India a lead in the region. To stop the construction of roads, China has also increased the number of its troops there and stopped the construction of roads. At the moment, it is being acknowledged that China has come within three kilometers of the Line of Actual Control at Galwan Valley in Ladakh. Due to which it is being said that China has occupied Indian territory. But China’s position is that it is within its territory according to the CCL.

India will do its best to avoid war. But this time, the areas where China has improved its position are dangerous for India, and also important for CPEC. The fact that China is forcing Indian forces to retreat in Ladakh is a clear message that China will not allow the ‘Belt and Road Project’ or the ‘CPEC Project’ to be harmed under any circumstances. The PLA has also conveyed the message that China will not hesitate to use its diplomatic and military might to quell any future Indian aggression. Besides, India is not digesting Chinese economic and military development. In all these situations in the future, CPEC will face more threats than ever before, for which, it is necessary to maintain peace inside Pakistan.

India is losing a lot strategically but still, India has no option to fight. India realizes that peace with Pakistan is essential to fight China. That is why India remained silent when China occupied Indian-occupied territory and built a road on the occasion of Kargil. Because India could not afford to fight two wars at once. Pakistan is not far from this area, and Pak-India tensions over Kashmir are nothing new.

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

on

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.
