New Delhi :  

China’s state-backed media, Global Times has accused the Western Media of being biased in favour of new Delhi in the Doklam standoff just because India is a democratic country.

Global Times on Tuesday in an opinion piece said, “What’s more India ‘arouses sympathy’ because it is ‘in a weaker position compared with China.

The Global Times further writes that India in the Western media is a victim which has been bullied by China, “even though India illegally entered Chinese territory and violated international law to unilaterally intervene in the territorial dispute between China and Bhutan.

The opinion peace further reads that the Western media reports  mainly cited India’s rhetoric and what happened from the Indian media’s point of view, depicting a mild India which called for a troop withdrawal and bilateral negotiations.

In the opinion piece it have been mentioned that India has several advantages in the sphere of international opinion chiefly because the chief among them being the fact that it’s a Western-style democracy.

The piece further reads, “India has a Western-style political system and can gloss it's illegal acts under the banner of democracy.”

The piece added that India has been a busybody in the region since World War II and the "Western media has ignored all this".

"Since WWII, India has been one of the few countries that has annexed a sovereign country. It has inherited colonial legacies and directly interfered with or even diplomatically and militarily controlled its tiny neighbours. But Western media has ignored all this," read the article.

The Global Times further right that, @India gained independence through nonviolent resistance to the British Empire. The West believes India has been well-behaved and will not invade or bully  other countries.”
