Indian-Americans have stood up in protest to voice their concerns about China’s on-going aggression in Ladakh and human rights violations of Uyghur Muslims

A group of Indian-Americans in the United States held a protest at a historical national mall in Washington DC against Beijing’s aggression towards India and human rights violations of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang province of China.

Holding play cards, banners in hands and wearing masks, these Indian origin Americans held peaceful protests against Communist Party of China and its leaders on Sunday. This was India-Americans-led second protests in Washington DC since last month, reports Hindustan Times in its story sourced from a wire agency.

“This summer while the world was fighting coronavirus, China was trying to encroach upon other’s land. It’s not only in Ladakh in India but also against its other neighbours as well. It’s time that the world unites against this Chinese aggression,” Adapa Prasad, one of Indian-Americans was quoted as saying.

On the other hand, Puneet Ahluwalia, an Indian-American Republican and founder of the Proud American Political Action Committee, said China’s Communist Party has infringed on the religious rights of the Uyghur community and violated human rights of the people of Hong Kong.

He applauded US President Donald Trump’s hard measures against China saying that it was in the right direction. “We have seen what they have done in Africa. We have seen what they are doing in Iran, most importantly, they recently backstabbed India,” Ahluwalia said, adding China is spying on Americans through various social media applications and by stealing data and information.
