Truth about the China-India War of 1962 which is hidden from us by Secularists, Liberals, Nehruvians, Socialists, Leftists and Congress Apologists!

The people of India ( esp. the people of Arunachal Pradesh in North East ) will never forget & perhaps never forgive those responsible for the China – India War of 1962, the war was a complete disaster for India and its defeat is mourned to this day by nationalists.

For most of us who grew up studying really boring History composed of awful repetitive chapters of Nehru-Gandhi role in Freedom Struggle or European Wars and Imperialism, we now tend to be put off by the very mention of Social Sciences & this is in fact a deliberate attempt by the successive Congress Governments in India to turn off masses from questioning the History of the country and thereby distort and change History and its chapters as they please!

Immense damage has been done to India’s History not only by Islamists & British but also by Dubious Free Thinkers, Pseudo Liberals and Communist’s by glorifying tyrant invaders like Arabs, Afghans and Turks to deleting Dharmic History or falsely presenting events or worse not disclosing them at all.

The China – India War of 1962 is one of the many important events that is not yet a part of the education curriculum and is barely discussed or debated in the “mainstream” print and television media!

The War of 1962 destroyed the chance of Tibet’s Independence, made enemies out of Asia’s two oldest civilizations China & India, brought China closer to the rogue Islamic State of Pakistan, and sealed the fate of the Communist Party and Prime Minister Nehru in India!

Though we Indians are quick to blame China for imposing the 1962 War on us, many fail to question how did China get into a War mode with India in the first place?

How did we end up ditching the country of Tibet that like Bhutan was the buffer state between India & China?

Why did we lose to the Chinese despite a valiant fight put up by our soldiers?

What was the Government of Prime Minister Nehru doing to retaliate and push back the invading Chinese hordes?

What was Nehru’s role as Indian Prime Minister during the 1962 War, who were his advisers?

Why did India end up becoming a joke and compared with a third rate country like Pakistan?

The article below exposes the blunders committed by Nehru & the bag of half baked people surrounding him that lead to the disaster of 1962.Hope the article answers questions related the war & opens up our mind for further research & probing.

In the year 1950, two momentous events shook Asia and the world. One was the Chinese invasion of Tibet, and the other, the Chinese intervention in the Korean War.

The first was near, on India’s borders, the other, far away in the Korean Peninsula where India had little at stake. By all canons of logic, India should have devoted utmost attention to the immediate situation in Tibet, and let interested parties like China and the U.S. sort it out in Korea.

But Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s Prime Minister did exactly the opposite. He treated the Tibetan crisis in a haphazard fashion, while getting heavily involved in Korea. India today is paying for this folly by being the only country of its size in the world without an official boundary with its giant neighbor.

Tibet soon disappeared from the map. As in Kashmir, Nehru sacrificed national interest at home in pursuit of international glory abroad.

India at the time maintained missions in Lhasa and Gyangtse. Due to the close relations that existed between India and Tibet going back centuries and also because of the unsettled conditions in China, Tibet’s transactions with the outside world were conducted mainly through India. Well into 1950, the Indian Government regarded Tibet as a free country.

The Chinese announced their invasion of Tibet on 25 October 1950. According to them, it was to ‘free Tibet from imperialist forces’, and consolidate its border with India. Nehru announced that he and the Indian Government were ‘extremely perplexed and disappointed with the Chinese Government’s action…’ Nehru also complained that he had been ‘led to believe by the Chinese Foreign Office that the Chinese would settle the future of Tibet in a peaceful manner by direct negotiation with the representatives of Tibet…’

This was not true, for in September 1949, more than a year before the Chinese invasion, Nehru himself had written: “Chinese communists are likely to invade Tibet.” The point to note is that Nehru, by sending mixed signals, showing more interest in Korea than in Tibet, had encouraged the Chinese invasion; the Chinese had made no secret of their desire to invade Tibet. In spite of this, Nehru’s main interest was to sponsor China as a member of the UN Security Council instead of safeguarding Indian interests in Tibet.

Because of this, when the Chinese were moving troops into Tibet, there was little concern in Indian official circles. Panikkar, the Indian Ambassador in Beijing, went so far as to pretend that there was ‘lack of confirmation’ of the presence of Chinese troops in Tibet and that to protest the Chinese invasion of Tibet would be an “interference to India’s efforts on behalf of China in the UN”.

So Panikkar was more interested in protecting Chinese interests in the UN than India’s own interests on the Tibetan border! Nehru agreed with his Ambassador. He wrote, “our primary consideration is maintenance of world peace… Recent developments in Korea have not strengthened China’s position, which will be further weakened by any aggressive action [by India] in Tibet.” So Nehru was ready to sacrifice India’s national security interests in Tibet so as not to weaken China’s case in the UN!

It is nothing short of tragedy that the two greatest influences on Nehru at this crucial juncture in history were Krishna Menon and K.M. Panikkar, both communists. Panikkar, while nominally serving as Indian ambassador in China, became practically a spokesman for Chinese interests in Tibet. Sardar Patel remarked that Panikkar “has been at great pains to find an explanation or justification for Chinese policy and actions.”

India eventually gave up its right to have a diplomatic mission in Lhasa on the ground that it was an ‘imperialist legacy’. This led to Nehru’s discredited ‘Hindi-Chini Bhai Bhai’. Mao had no reciprocal affection for India and never spoke of ‘Chini-Hindi Bhai Bhai’— or its Chinese equivalent.

Far from it, he had only contempt for India and its leaders. Mao respected only the strong who would oppose him, and not the weak who bent over backwards to please him.

Sardar Patel warned Nehru: ‘Even though we regard ourselves as friends of China, the Chinese do not regard us as friends.” He wrote a famous letter in which he expressed deep concern over developments in Tibet, raising several important points. In particular, he noted that a free and friendly Tibet was vital for India’s security, and everything including military measures should be considered to ensure it.’

On November 9, 1950, two days after he wrote the letter to Nehru, he announced in Delhi: ‘In Kali Yuga, we shall return ahimsa for ahimsa. If anybody resorts to force against us, we shall meet it with force.’ But Nehru ignored Patel’s letter. The truth is that India was in a strong position to defend its interests in Tibet, but gave up the opportunity for the sake of pleasing China. It is not widely known in India that in 1950, China could have been prevented from taking over Tibet.
