China Detains Bloggers for Challenging Official Narrative of Himalayas Clash with India


Chinese police arrested three bloggers Sunday for the “crime” of “slinging mud” at the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) by doubting its official narrative of the Galwan Valley clash in June 2020, a massive hand-to-hand brawl between Indian and Chinese troops in the Himalayas that resulted in dozens of casualties.

China’s state-run Global Times was vague about explaining precisely what the bloggers wrote that was so offensive:

Following the arrests of two Web users who slung mud at the People’s Liberation Army(PLA) heroes who were killed in the Galwan Valley border clash with India, a blogger in Southwest China’s Sichuan Province confessed his misdeeds for having insulted the martyrs on Sunday, and he has been arrested. 

The 25-year-old Web user, surnamed Yang, was reported to the local police in Sichuan’s Mianyang by netizens on Saturday for having posted smears toward the PLA soldiers, who fought in the China-India border clash.
