Today in an online press conference organised by few of the important Muslim community leaders, belonging to the different organisations, and NGOs, have condemned the Chinese incursion and aggression in Ladakh and suggested the government of India to develop a strong and resolute approach towards China. In a statement to the press the Muslims’ representatives said: “We condemn the unprovoked Chinese attack on our soldiers in the Galwan Valley, Ladakh, and offer our condolences to the families of our brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives in protecting our borders. As the situation is extremely sensitive, India needs to display maturity and adopt a firm and resolute approach towards the situation. .” The representatives opined: “We must not compromise on our territorial integrity and should firmly make China to vacate all the areas that it has illegally occupied. Military experts have pointed out that the Galwan valley area is of great importance as an intrusion there can block our strategic road that provides a lifeline to our troops in Sub Sector North. We have to pursue all political and diplomatic channels. We urge the government to take the people, the opposition, and military and diplomacy experts into confidence and ensure that our territorial integrity is restored quickly. We need peaceful, just and permanent resolution to this problem so that we can focus on the task of repairing our economy and fighting the raging pandemic #Covid_19.
