After 20 Indian soldiers were killed in what was termed a “violent face-off” with the Chinese army in the Ladakh region, the Indian government announced the ban on 59 Chinese apps to protect the privacy of the Indian citizens.
Soon, reactions on the move started pouring in on social media and Chinese media released a lot of statements in the last few days which shows their restlessness.
Recently, Hu Xijing, editor-in-chief of an English-language Chinese state-owned newspaper, shared a screenshot of an Indian daily and blathered on about how China cannot find Indian goods in the market, should they decide to boycott too. He added that Indian ‘friends’ should ‘have more important things’ than ‘nationalism’.
Actress Celina Jaitley, who is quite active on social media, gave a savage reply to Xijing by criticizing him for calling Indians ‘friend’ by pointing out that ‘friends don’t kill friends’ and the word that he should use is “patriotism” because Indians are ready to die for their country.
In another tweet, she reminded Xijin that Buddhism, a religion that has shaped the culture of China for many, many years, has come from India only.
For the unversed, Celina belongs to a family of army men. Her father VK Jaitley was a war veteran, while her brother is currently serving the Indian army.
On the work front, Celina made a comeback with Season’s Greetings on Zee 5 that released on April 15.
