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.

Will Pakistan Recognize and Accept Israel?

Published

on

The Muslim world is at a new turning point in history. The distance between Arabia and Israel seems to be closing. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince have met. The US Secretary of State was also present at the meeting in Saudi Arabia. The world media is shouting at this meeting. If this news is true then it is a great development in world politics. The UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan have already joined Israel. What color will this friendship with Israel bring to the Arabs? Why are the Arab countries so anxious to embrace yesterday’s enemy? Will Pak-Israel anger last forever?

While the new global political development is a source of joy for the minority, it is also a source of unhappiness for the majority. Questions about recent developments also need to be answered. Experts say the meeting took place and that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu arrived in a private jet with the Mossad chief. He met secretly with the Saudi Crown Prince. The problem is that the results of the recent US election have upset many countries, including Saudi Arabia. After Biden’s victory, Saudi Arabia fears what the new US president will do. Saudi Arabia wants the support of the Israeli lobby in the United States. Saudi Arabia has extended a hand of friendship to both Turkey and Israel. Saudi Arabia does not want its relations with the United States to rupture. Will Saudi Arabia’s efforts work?

The first is that US foreign policy has implications. Four Muslim countries were destroyed by US foreign policy. Libya was devastated by Obama and Hillary. Had it not been for Russia and Hezbollah behind Assad in Syria, it would have been like Libya. The situation in Iraq and Afghanistan is also in front of everyone. The situation in Afghanistan and Iraq hurt the United States. Trump has not started new wars. Biden is under the influence of former US President Barack Obama. They are “dense” like them. Such people are dangerous. This threat is making the world restless.

Iran has also linked Biden’s victory to goodwill. Iran hopes sanctions will be eased. Trade routes to Europe will open for Iran. Pakistan will also benefit from easing sanctions on Iran. Pakistan’s goods will go to Iran and Iran’s goods will come to Pakistan. Saudi Arabia wants to curb Iran’s influence in the region. If anyone can look Israel in the eye, it is Iran and Turkey. Saudi Arabia will not be made of Iran. It is said that the enemy of the enemy is the friend, Saudi Arabia is also going to sacrifice its long-standing policy under the same policy.

The question is, when Pakistan’s friends are raising the bar of love and friendship with Israel, will Pakistan lag behind in this race? Will Pak-Israel anger last forever? Prime Minister Imran Khan’s position on Palestine is the position of the nation, in which he said that our policy on relations with Israel is the same as that of the founder of Pakistan. The founders of Pakistan have always rejected relations with Israel. He used to say, “This is a dagger inserted in the heart of the Ummah. This is an illegitimate state which Pakistan will never recognize.”

Our position cannot be linked to the position of the Arab League or the OIC. Our position is based on the position of the founder of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam. If Pakistan backs away from the Palestinian policy, it will deviate from the Kashmir policy. Pakistan is a non-Arab country that has taken part in two wars against Israel. Pakistan’s policy is clear and cannot be changed. But our Prime Minister is second to none in changing his stance on every issue. As soon as the news of the Saudi Crown Prince’s meeting with the Israeli Prime Minister came, a certain group in Pakistan was deployed to form a consensus to recognize Israel.

A lobby of specialized intellectuals and journalists has begun work on the “Acceptable” mission. The government has started throwing leaves through social media. The past shows that our Prime Minister jumps to great heights, in this case too. If that happened then his followers would accept it as a blessing.

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.
