  • Indian protesters burned Chinese flags and the images of President Xi Jinping to express their anger towards the death of 20 Indian soldiers.
  • Activists also called on the public to boycott China-made products.
  • Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned the country will not hesitate to “provide an appropriate response” if provoked.

Protesters in India took their anger to the streets by burning Chinese flags, along with pictures and effigies of President Xi Jinping. This follows after at least 20 members of the Indian Armed Forces were killed in a “violent face-off” with Chinese soldiers in the disputed Himalayan border.

According to reports, no shots were fired between the two sides and the deaths were a result of hand-to-hand combat as they used fists, stones, and clubs during the clash. No guns are allowed in the border.

Protests broke across the country following the death of Indian soldiers.
Activists burned images of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Others also called for a boycott of China-made products.

In an audio message, Residents Welfare Association (RWA) president Ranjit Singh said:

“Today, as your president, I declare Defence Colony is at war. Unfortunately we cannot take up guns and bullets but definitely there are other means. We can break China’s backbone economically and today I request you all, with immediate effect, shun Chinese goods and if you have any lying in your house, please throw them out.”

Eventually, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a statement.

PM Modi said:

“India wants peace, but if provoked, India will provide an appropriate response. I want to assure the nation that the sacrifice of our soldiers will not go to waste. For us, the integrity of India and sovereignty is at the top and nobody can stop us from protecting them.”

Meanwhile, Beijing also claims they have casualties on their side although they did not specify how many of their soldiers were wounded or killed during the clash.
