After China blocked the bid to designate Masood Azhar as a global terrorist for the fourth time, people of India taking to micro blogging site Twitter and made a top trend for the #BoycottChineseProducts.
Many Twitteratis outpoured their anger against China for not declaring Masood Azhar as global terrorists and as a mark to show patriotism people started this trend.
“Since China playing dirty & supporting Pak terror groups in UNSC, @narendramodi govt should put prohibitive duties on Chinese goods into India, ban Chinese mobile phones. They understand self-interest. If we make access to Indian market conditional, China likely to see sense” writes Madhu Purnima Kishwar a social blogger.
She further added that even if the government cannot muster courage to ban Chinese goods, “let’s as citizens #BoycottChineseGoods. Let’s hit China where it hurts.”
Also, many users have uninstalled Chinese applications to express their anger against the move. Many people have also suggested on their social media sites that there should be a replication of global trade war and as a responsible citizen people should not purchase Chinese goods or endorse their services.
“Let us understand that #India is the biggest market for #China for their industries, it cannot keep earning from us and keep supporting terrorist that bleeds us, it is high time @narendramodi imposes heavy duties on Chinese goods,” said Pawann Durani a social media user on his twitter handle.
Many netizens released an entire list of apps and services that as a ‘patriotic’ citizen, one should disconnect with immediate effect.
However, the proposal to declare Azhar under the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council was moved by France, UK and US on February 27.
Following the Pulwama attack, India received global backing in its bid to block Azhar, the chief of Pakistan based terror group (Jaish-e-Mohammad) that owned the responsibility of the convoy attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed.
