A Chinese state news agency has accused India of committing “Seven Sins” in an agitprop video that they recently released. The video refers to the ongoing standoff between India and China at Doklam.
In the video titled “7 Sins of India. It’s time for India to confess its SEVEN SINS,” the show’s anchor Dier Wang can be heard accusing India of trespassing on Chinese territory. The video is part of an edition of ‘The Spark’ show that is telecast on Xinhua. The video also accuses India of not abiding by the international law, and “hijacking” Bhutan, which is believed to be the third party in the two-month-long dispute.
“Do you negotiate with a robber who had just broken into your house… You just call 911 or just fight him back, right?” says Wang. The actor sporting a stick-on beard and heavily-accented English, apparently representing a Sikh replies: “Why call 911 – don’t you wanna play house, bro?” Wang hits back saying: “If you wanna play, get out of my house first.”
The two-month long standoff at Doklam near Sikkim started in June after Indian soldiers entered the plateau. Doklam is a remote, uninhabited territory which is claimed by both China and Bhutan to stop Chinese army from constructing a road that India believes is a serious security concern as it changes the status quo at the borders of India, China, and Bhutan.
