New Delhi/Kolkata: After Hong Kong, now Taiwan has shown solidarity with India amid India-China standoff with another illustration showing both India and Taiwan are united and strong.
Earlier Taiwan News had published an illustration showing Lord Ram taking on the Chinese Dragon, amid violent face-off between Indian soldiers and Chinese troops along Line of Actual Control in the Galwan Valley on June 15, in which 20 Indian soldiers were martyred. There were casualties on the Chinese side as well, though China has censured their numbers. US intelligence exposes Chinese censorship by stating that 35 Chinese soldiers were killed.
Taiwan News has created an handshake illustration expressing Taiwan’s solidarity with India. In the spirit of solidarity with India, Taiwan News has created the image inspired by HoSaiLei’s work.
Both Hong Kong and Taiwan are oppressed by Chinese policies and force. China has always illegally and forcefully intervened in Taiwan and Hong Kong’s internal issues. China’s expansionism is no secret. People from India has also raised their voice in support of the people of Hong Kong and Taiwan.
As per Taiwan News, “Taiwan too has found itself bearing the brunt of China’s military aggression this week with People’ Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) warplanes penetrating its air defense identification zone (ADIZ) 4times, and 6times over the course of just 10 days. Taiwan has responded to each incursion with strict warnings and fighter jets of its own, all resulting in a hasty Chinese retreat.”
On the India-China clash at border, an image of Lord Ram battling the Chinese Dragon was reportedly posted on the Hong Kong social media site LIHKG in solidarity with India which was later carried by Taiwan News earlier. The image was first shared by @hkbhkese a Hong Kong resident, followed by @TaiwanNews886 in its article. The illustration showed Lord Ram, drawing a bow to shoot the Chinese Dragon along with the message “We conquer. We kill.” The image was culturally significant as Lord Ram represents India whereas the dragon represents China.
