Mumbai, Aug 31: Days after the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) announced that India and China agreed to end their military standoff in Doklam, Shiv Sena said the settlement shouldn’t be considered as a political victory. In its mouthpiece Saamana, Shiv Sena pointed out that China had a history of backstabbing neighbours and India cannot trust it. “Doklam is just one issue. China has been transgressing into India’s territory in Arunachal Pradesh and Ladakh. We cannot trust China even after Doklam settlement,” Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamana said on Thursday.

Shiv Sena praised the Indian Army and Defense Minister Arun Jaitley for not bowing down to China’s demand of withdrawal of Indian troops from Doklam. “Though China warned of full-fledged military confrontation, our jawans stood firm in Doklam,” wrote Saamana. “China realised that Arun Jaitley’s remark that India of today is way different from India of 1962 wasn’t fraudulent,” the Saamana editorial added.

Shiv Sena said India should not trust China after truce on Doklam. “China has agreed to pull back troops from Doklam, but it has been trying to infiltrate in India from border areas of Arunachal Pradesh and Uttaranchal. China openly supports Pakistani terrorists who infiltrate from across the border. In this situation, can we trust China?” Shiv Sena said. “We should not sit back silent considering Doklam as a political victory. We can’t trust China,” it added.

On August 28, the MEA said India and China agreed to end their military standoff in Doklam. The standoff was triggered on June 16 when the Indian Army stopped Chinese troops from building a road at Doklam in the Sikkim sector. China had demanded an immediate withdrawal of Indian troops from Doklam. However, India had refused to withdraw its soldiers unless there was a simultaneous withdrawal from the Chinese side as well. Only one animal can be slaughtered at a time and the other animals must not witness any death, say the guidelines.

Slaughtering: The Islamic method of killing an animal for meat is called Zabiha. After reciting the blessing, the slaughterman uses a surgically sharp instrument to cut the animal’s throat, windpipe and the blood vessels around its neck. The blood is then allowed to drain from the body.
