China humiliated its own slain soldiers by granting them anonymous death

Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it. 20 brave hearts of Army’s 16 Bihar Regiment made supreme sacrifices protecting the border of our nation on night of 15 June in violent clashes with Chinese troops in the Galwan valley of Ladakh. They died fighting to protect the border so that citizens of the country can live peacefully. Can a nation repay the martyrdom of its soldiers? NO. 

Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it. 20 brave hearts of Army’s 16 Bihar Regiment made supreme sacrifices protecting the border of our nation on night of 15 June in violent clashes with Chinese troops in the Galwan valley of Ladakh. They died fighting to protect the border so that citizens of the country can live peacefully. Can a nation repay the martyrdom of its soldiers? NO. 

When the commanding officer, Colonel B Santosh Babu’s mortal remains wrapped in national flag in Army Truck laden with flowers with full military honours arrived at his residence in Vidyanagar in Hyderabad on 17 June, the emotionally-charged crowd holding national flags raised slogans of “Santosh Babu amar Rahe” (Long live Santosh Babu), Bharat Mata Ki Jai (Long live mother India). As the tricolour-wrapped coffin was brought out of the truck by the army personnel, people bowed their heads in gratitude to martyr with teary eyes and heavy hearts. Their tears conveyed a message of gratitude to Colonel B Santosh Babu, “You died so that we can live.” 

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Friday announced an ex-gratia of Rs five crore to the family of Colonel B Santosh Babu. The CM also announced a residential plot and Group 1 job for his wife. He said that he himself would personally go to the Colonel Babu’s house and hand over the help as he is ready to extend all help to the family. Can martyrdom be paid back? NO. But government and citizens have every right to pay tribute and gratitude to their heroes. 

When Hawaldar Palani’s body was brought by air to the Madurai airport, representatives of the three wings of the Indian Armed forces and various organisations paid their homage at the airport. Unmindful of lockdown because of Corona, people in huge number gathered to pay their homage to the “brave son of India. The Ramanathapuram collector, K. Veeraragharao, consoling Palani’s wife handed over the cheque for Rs.20 lakh, the solatium amount announced by the Chief Minister, Edappadi K Palaniswami.

India saluted their heroes when coffins of rest of 18 soldiers wrapped in national flags reached their native places. People and government both paid their tribute and gratitude. After funeral, tricolour was given to their families as a token of respect, sacrifice, selflessness, and valour. This is the reason for which they sacrificed their lives. The entire country stood by their heroes, because our government released the names and numbers of fallen heroes. But, this is not the case with China. People of China are not even aware of their slain soldiers‘ identity.

China has not revealed the number of its casualties in its typical secretive manner. China’s list of lies, deceit and secrecy is unending. China hid the information about the Corona Virus, which resulted in almost 3 million innocent people having died of Corona all over the world. 

Another lie of China is number of Corona casualties at its own land. China officially informed the world about 4,000 people died due to the coronavirus. But, one study at the number of mobile users, which has suddenly decreased, the whole world has begun to suspect China. A Bloomberg report said that there was a loss of 2.1 crore mobile users in China. The big question here is that China Mobile has lost 72.5 lakh users, obviously these users may have ported their number to another operator, but there is no report of an increase in users of other operators yet. In such a situation, people now started believing that China has hidden the death toll due to Coronavirus, which might be in huge number. 

Now, China has withheld the number, names and details of of its slain heroes, who died at Galwan valley on 15 June. How can China be so cruel to strip the honour of its own soldiers posthumously?  Chinese slain soldiers’ mortal remains would not be wrapped in their national flags, no guard of honour, no gathering of common citizens, no visit of local leaders to pay tribute. Forget about paying gratitude, Chinese government doesn’t even acknowledge its slain soldiers, to cover up its misadventure. One can imagine the plight of a Chinese family hiding the reason of their soldier son’s death from friends and relatives.

However, international intelligence agencies confirmed China suffered almost 100 casualties and equal number of injured. Is this why China didn’t disclose the number and identity of its slain and injured soldiers in order to save its face?
