After the latest display of Chinese aggression at the border, television and OTT star Karanvir Bohra has decided to boycott all Chinese products including the phone app Tiktok.
Says Karanvir, “I’ve been contemplating this since a month and the killing of our soldiers at the border was the final nail on the coffin..My country lost jawans in a fight with Chinese soldiers.There were tears in my eyes when I heard this news. Me deleting will not get the lives back, but what face will I show to God that the country I live in, was born in is in bad terms with a country whose product I’m using.What kind of citizen am if I can’t do this much?”
Reasons the Casino star, “It’s like if you hurt a member of my family. My parents or my siblings. Would I entertain you? No? When you kill my brothers on the border who go out there fearlessly and fight to protect our country you are causing hurt to my family . I can’t do what these brave soldiers do simply for the love of their motherland.
Karanvir felt burdened with guilt after many soldiers were killed by the Chinese earlier this week. “If these dead soldiers’ mothers were to stand in front of me, how would I show them my face? It’s easy to say ‘Mere Bharat Mahaan’ But to really love our country we need to look beyond self-interest. We cannot encourage Chinese products, whether it is an app or anything else made in China, sorry I’d never use it.”
