As China continues to take Pakistan’s side over terrorism and block India’s bid to designate Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar as a terrorist by the United Nations, locals in several parts of India and also on social media have started campaigns to boycott Chinese products this festival season.

Angry with China’s support to Pakistan, people are extensively sharing posts on WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter with an appeal to boycott Chinese items. On Saturday, China had extended its technical hold on India’s move to get Pakistan-based Azhar designated as a terrorist by the UN. China did it just two days before the expiry of the hold.

India had earlier said that Uri attack, in which 18 Indian soldiers lost their lives, was carried out by Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists. Social media users were also angered after China blocked the flow of a tributary leading to Brahmaputra river in Assam. This was seen as the Chinese response to surgical strikes carried out by Indian soldiers on Pakistani terror launch pads.

Several users have pledged not to buy Chinese items during festivals this year.

On Monday, India Today TV reported that the Indian government is preparing an extensive plan to make China understand the need to designate Azhar as a terrorist by the UN. Incidentally, Azhar’s Jaish-e-Mohammad has already been designated as a terrorist organisation by the UN. According to reports, India may have a detailed discussion with Chinese officials on the sidelines of BRICS Summit in Goa, starting October 15.

Not only on social media, ETV Uttar Pradesh today reported that several social organisations and people associated with different parties have pledged to boycott Chinese products in Agra, Uttar Pradesh.

Update: October 12/2018

A report in the ToI today said that the campaign to boycott Chinese products is gathering momentum in Agra as several organisations have appealed to locals boycott ‘Made in China’ goods.

The report said local businesses, who deal in Chinese lighting and decorative items, are apprehending a loss of around 75% profits in the current festival season.

            Dear Lessel, I agree that Chinese goods have well penetrated into our lives. China is providing goods at a cheaper rate. But that does not Mean China can ever buy my patriotism. I am committed to reject Chinese products and I will do that. It may take little more time but I am sure this movement shall eventually succeed. Now it is up to your wisdom to buy or reject Chinese products. You may strengthen Chinese economy and enable them to make more bullets to kill our shoulders but I can never do that. I request all Indian media, whether print, electronic or otherwise to come up volunteerily and make this news and the underlying sentiment reach all Indians. Jai Hind.

                                then just do it. China doesn't care about it! only India obsessed with China. Chinese people hardly notice what was going on with India. they are simply not interested! they alway aimed on the US and the EU as compeors not India. Indians always try to make themself important to others which is funny!

                                    Introduce anti-dumping duty on all Chinese products. Cancel deals with Chinese service providers for putting up mobile factories and sea ports.

                                      It is very easy to tell that boycott the Chinese stuff. Here these products are the integral part of our commodity. All our big companies are making their products in China for their benefit and huge profit. We need to blame ourselves for the Chinese stuff. We don't know how to compite with them. What about the cheapest phone we made?. It is nowhere in the market. The so called make in India program. We are begging others to make here, even to the Chinese companies! (Like MI) we need to go long way to reach this goal. OK you may deside not to buy the Chinese stuff. Remember you may not illuminate your house on this Divali. Give me an alternate for the same price, I will also do the same thing.

                                        I support the boycott of i products but shouldn't the gov lead this fight by banning the imports of i products and hurt is economically?

                                          Have been avoiding buying the Chinese products for over three decades now. Indians should be united to isolate and reject buying their products.

                                            There is something called free trade agreement and Global Village. Unfortunately Most of Indian fools wont understand this. Government can't directly broke this trade only people need to educate others to boycott products mfd in china.
