We couldn’t find stronger words, atleast?

The Chinese government is upto a new trick. And the magnitude of this diplomatic shift is humungous. Till last month, China considered the whole of Arunachal Pradesh as disputed territory. And from last month onwards, it started to consider Kashmir also as disputed territory. No, there was no official statement saying this. It was being done discreetly. Until, The Hindu broke the news. For a full month, Chinese have issued separately stapled visas to Kashmiri students, similar to what they do for Arunachal Pradesh residents.

So now, it is not just Pakistan that considers this as disputed territory, we have China do it too. And what was our government's response to this blatant disregard by the Communists across the border? We protested like this: "It is our considered view that there should be no discrimination against visa applicants of Indian nationality on grounds of domicile or ethnicity". That's it. That is the official statement. A country suddenly decides to question the legitimacy of a part of your country, and you tell them that in your "considered" view, it is wrong? Till the other day, atleast our words used to be strong. Now we have even lost our penchant for using stronger language too. No wonder, neighbours take all this leeway to behave as they wish. Imagine if we were to administer such a huge shift in our policy, the first response of the Chinese would have been tit-fot-tat.

By the way, Comrade Prakash Karat loses no oppurtunity to deride all those who criticize China. Why did he not come out with a statement against this frustrating action by China?

He is not comrade but coward Prakash Karat. I always wonder how boldly our neighbors have behave with respect to border issues and it wonders me even more how India's tone has been that of whiner. Thank god at least communists are not ruling the country, else India would have been part of China long ago.
