India Boycott's Chinese Products After China’s Verdict On Masood Azhar, Here’s Why

This comes exactly one month after the Pulwama tragedy of 14th February, which cost India the lives of over 40 CRPF jawans when a car full of explosives rammed into a convoy carrying the jawans. Pakistani militant group, Jaish-e-Mohammed, claimed responsibility for the attack.

Since then, India has made a bid to the UN Security Council to have JeM leader, Masood Azhar, listed as a global terrorist. However, this bid has been put on a “technical hold” by China.

This is the fourth time China has blocked this bid since the year 2009.

The UK, US and France had moved to have Azhar booked under the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council on February 27th, 13 days after the Pulwama attack.

However, China has given its verdict on Masood Azhar and has blocked the bid. According to the Ministry of External Affairs, this is extremely disappointing.

Soon after the verdict, several Indians began demanding a boycott of all Chinese products and #BoycottChina and #BoycottChineseProducts began trending on Indian Twitter.

According to them, this move by China shows that they are willing to prioritize diplomatic relations over terrorism and therefore, it is important to boycott Chinese goods.

This is what they have to say:
