The problems between India and China are increasing on a daily basis. Both the countries are somewhere somehow leading themselves towards unwanted conflict.

The Global Times said as per reported by The Tribune, “Nationalist fervour that demands revenge against China has taken root in India since the border war. The election of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has fuelled the country’s nationalist sentiments,”
According to China, the Indian border troops illegally trespassed into Chinese territory, Doklam. But India and Bhutan call Doklam, a Bhutanese territory. Indian army stopped the Chinese army from building a road in Doklam, this leads to the face-off between both the armies.
The article claimed: “The (Doklam) border row this time is an action targeted at China that caters to the demand of India’s religious nationalist. The Modi Government can do nothing if religious nationalism becomes extreme, as shown in its failure to curb violent incidents against Muslims since he came to power in 2014.”
