After India revokes the special status of Kashmir, China has spared no time to come out with an official statement on the issue.
Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said on August 6:
“Recently India has continued to hurt Chinese sovereignty by unilaterally changing domestic law.”
Mentioning India’s claim of sovereignty over Kashmir involved Chinese land, she further added:
“This act is not acceptable and won’t be in any sense binding.”
However, contrary to Pakistan’s expectation, China hasn’t accused India of any human rights violation inside India-administered-Kashmir.
China itself is accused of repression on Uyghurs (alternatively spelled Uighurs) Muslims inside China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, and is also allegedly using various means to repress the voice of Hong Kong protesters who have been currently protesting for a while against a Hong Kong bill which was passed allegedly on Beijing’s will.
These very allegations of rights violations against China keep the Chinese officials away from raising any allegations of rights violations against India in India-administered-Kashmir, despite the fact that China’s all weather ally, Pakistan, wanted China to make such allegations.
