India is facing border problems with China while grappling with rising cases of Covid-19 infection at home. To be sure, India’s border issue with China is not new. The current tensions have arisen in an area in Ladakh in Kashmir with Indian and Chinese armies bringing in more troops on borders.
A clash took place between Indian and Chinese border troops on 5 May in which several soldiers on both sides were injured. The Indian Army is giving a befitting response to China on the border, but the notorious NDTV is running propaganda and fake news against India and the Indian Army. It is spreading fake news about the Indian Army.
INDIAN ARMY: There has been no detention of Indian soldiers at the borders. We categorically deny this. It only hurts national interests when media outlets publish unsubstantiated news. (Official Statement) #breaking

It is to be noticed that China is upset with India as of now and the reason behind this is that India is constantly seeking to lure businesses moving out of China due to Corona. At present, investors keen on starting their business in India. But Beijing is trying to put pressure on India so that India can not attract American companies to invest in India. Therefore, China has increased military activity on the Sikkim, Arunachal and Ladakh border to create pressure.
However, Indian soldiers are thwarting every move of China. Recently, Indian and Chinese troops clashed along the Line of Actual Control in eastern Ladakh and Sikkim. Four Indian troops were injured, whereas 13 Chinese troops were wounded in the incident. But NDTV, on the other hand, is supporting Beijing by claiming that China has detained Indian troops.
NDTV said that Indian troops were detained by Chinese forces, but later they were released. Later, the Indian Army refuted reports that any of its soldiers were detained by Chinese troops in Ladakh. “There has been no detention of Indian soldiers at the China border. We categorically deny this. It only hurts national interests when media outlets publish unsubstantiated news,” news agency ANI reported Army spokesperson Colonel Aman Anand as saying.
It would not be wrong to say that NDTV has again resorted to peddling fake news concerning matters that are critical to national security. It wants to defame the Indian army and bring down the morale of soldiers.
On the one hand, the Indian Army is constantly giving a befitting reply to China, on the other hand, organizations like NDTV have started Chinese propaganda against the Indian Army within the country.
