In response to the Indian move to identify several Chinese companies in India with alleged direct or indirect links with People’s Liberation Army (PLA), Chinese state mouthpiece, Global Times (GT) has said that India has been hijacked by domestic radical nationalism, and has failed to manage it.

Recently, New Delhi identified several Chinese companies including Alibaba, Tencent, Huawei, Xindia Steels Ltd. which it considers are linked with the Chinese army and now may face action by the government.

“We have zeroed in on some companies with links with the Chinese army but what action would be taken is yet to be decided,” said a source who has knowledge of the matter. Allegedly, the Chinese venture capital investments in India including “big names” where the benefits of civilian innovation are suspected to be used for China’s defence sector.

India’s Pompous Remarks Of Capturing ‘Aksai Chin’ Triggered Chinese Anger – US Expert

In an interview with GT, Hu Zhiyong, a research fellow at the Institute of International Relations of the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences said that India does not want to confront Chinese militarily and is, therefore, finding new ways to respond to radical nationalism and these Chinese firms have become the new targets.

As reported earlier by EurAsian Times, the Indian government has banned a total of 59 Chinese apps including the teen favourite TikTok. India’s IT ministry has announced the banning of 59 Chinese apps that include giants names like TikTok, ShareIt, UC Browser, Likee, WeChat, Weibo and Bigo Live.

The Indian ministry called the Chinese-owned applications as “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, the security of the state and public order.”

India’s move to list these Chinese giants is in cooperation with US-China Economic and Security Review Commission, a congressional commission of the US which said that the Chinese government’s military-civil fusion policy aims to spur innovation and economic growth through an array of policies and other government-supported mechanisms, including venture capital (VC) funds while leveraging the fruits of civilian innovation for China’s defence sector.

The tabloid stated that the military-civilian integration is a common and open commercial model around the world, and “connection to the military” is only an excuse that India uses to restrict Chinese companies’ legitimate civilian business.

Meanwhile, another expert speaking to the tabloid stated that although Xinxing Cathay makes military vehicles and clothes, and China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC) is one of the largest providers of electronic systems, including radars, to the PLA, the Chinese companies’ business with the PLA does not mean they will threaten the national security of India. He added that India did not provide evidence to support its accusations.

It concluded by saying that New Delhi has shown no sincerity to settle the India-China border standoff even when Beijing moved to ease the tensions. It further claimed that India has tried to escalate the issue by conducting more military drills in the border areas besides boycotting Chinese firms.
