We lost to the Chinese despite a valiant fight put up by our soldiers,
what was Nehru doing to retaliate/ push back invading Chinese hordes?
Why did🇮🇳end up becoming a joke that’s compared with 3rd rate🇵🇰
🇮🇳would’ve acquired status of great power
🇵🇰would’ve disappeared from radar of🌎attention
had Patel’s letter & international opinion not been ignored!
#Nehru September 1949
Yet, he sacrificed India’s national security interests in Tibet;
to not weaken China’s case in the UN!
“Lack of confirmation of the presence of Chinese troops in Tibet” Panikkar, 🇮🇳Ambassador to China
“Our primary consideration is maintenance of🌎peace
developments in Korea haven’t strengthened China’s position
Indian action in Tibet’ll weaken it further”
From betrayal of Tibet to expulsion of Dalai Lama in 1959
well aware of🇨🇳incursions in Ladakh & Aksai Chin,
he & KrishnaMenon for years kept it secret in pursuit of international glory through his Pancha Sheel-‘policy’ towards🇨🇳
When he brought this to the notice of #Nehru and KrishnaMenon
Menon in Nehru’s presence snapped,
that he was “lapping up CIA propaganda.”!!
