Chinese media ‘racist’ video on India clash sparks anger
Chinese state media has released a propaganda video that lambasts India over a border dispute, sparking accusations of racism.
The English-language clip, which accuses India of committing “sins”, features a Chinese actor in a turban, mockingly speaking in an Indian accent.
Xinhua published the clip on Wednesday which is from a chat show discussing the ongoing Doklam stand-off.
It has been met with both bewilderment and anger in India.
Titled “7 Sins of India”, the video stars female presenter, Dier Wang, who lists out China’s grievances against India in the ongoing border dispute in the Doklam area, which borders China, India and Bhutan.
It is the latest episode of an online series called The Spark, an English-language online chat show recently launched by Xinhua.
Speaking in an amused yet indignant tone, she accuses India of “trampling international law” and “inventing various excuses to whitewash its illegal moves”.
Her monologue is interspersed with dialogue from an “Indian”, depicted by a Chinese actor wearing a turban, sunglasses, and an obviously ill-fitting beard.
In what appear to be attempts at humour, he waggles his head and speaks English in an exaggerated Indian accent, amid canned laughter.
In another scene he points a pair of scissors at another actor who is supposed to represent Bhutan – a clear reference to the Chinese stand that India is “bullying” the tiny Himalayan nation.
The video appears to be solely targeted at a foreign audience. It is delivered entirely in English and appears on Xinhua’s YouTube, Twitter and Facebook feeds – services which are banned in China.
Chinese reports say the online chat show aims to “comment on hot domestic and international topics from China’s perspective and with an international vision”.
Previous episodes have also focused on the stand-off and Sino-Indian relations, as well as relations with the US and President Donald Trump, but were more sober than this one.
