Many human rights activists including Indian, Japanese, Taiwanese and Tibetan gathered in protest at the famous Hachiko statue near Shibuya station in Tokyo (Japan) to protest against the Chinese President Xi Jinping and his expansionist policies.
The highly ambitious Xi Jinping is aggressively trying to expand and encroach territories of its neighbors like Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, India, and Bhutan, either by force or by grand, opaque and dubious Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and One Belt One Road (OROB) projects.
China’s treatment of Uighur Muslims has also come under the scanner. On June 18, US President Donald Trump passed a bill that allowed the US to impose sanction on China over the mistreatment of the Uighur Muslims.
While denying democracy to the Chinese citizens, Xi is trying everything within his means to suppress the genuine voices of pro-democracy youth activists in Hong Kong. The financial hub has been under a state of turmoil due to pro-democracy protests since last year. The latest wave of protests is due to the highly controversial national security legislation being imposed by Beijing to control the city.
Till the 1950s, Tibet used to be a peace-loving Buddhist country which has been swallowed by Chinese expansionism.
On the other hand, a highly advanced and progressive country such as Taiwan is also facing various pressure tactics from China and was recently denied representation at WHO at China’s behest.
Had the WHO paid heed to the early alarm raised by the Taiwanese health authorities regarding COVID-19, the global devastation wrought upon by COVID-19 would have been greatly mitigated and reduced.
Within this context, Xi Jinping’s surreptitious handling of the coronavirus and lack of transparency has raised eyebrows against him.
Xi Jinping has manipulated the Chinese Communist system to secure himself as a lifelong Chinese President. Even Chinese citizens are also at the receiving end and they also would like to get rid of his dictatorship, which is evident by the huge support being received by the protestors in Hong Kong.
Under Xi Jinping’s leadership, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has been caught initiating unprovoked violence in the Galwan valley in eastern Ladakh violating the agreement between India and China.
The violent face-off between the two countries led to the martyrdom of 20 Indian Army soldiers and reportedly, more than 43 PLA soldiers were also killed.
While the world’s largest democracy India has duly disclosed the details of the casualties on the Indian side and paid rich tributes to all the martyrs, China under Xi Jinping has been again caught for hiding the casualties in the PLA.
To hide Chinese humiliation by Indian soldiers, Xi Jinping’s regime has not even paid tributes to its soldiers who were attained martyrdom to fulfil Xi Jinping’s ambitions.
