Do Indian people respect China?
Vipul Kumar, been to 3 countries - alone
Yes, we respect China and pretty much every country,even Pakistan.
We are aware that China is still ahead of us . We are linked by Buddhism .China had a great history and a great ancient civilization. Most of the electronics we use are from China. China is as good as India when it comes to IT industry or manufacturing . China is beautiful too . I have met people who really wanted to visit China before any other country.
This is what mindful people will answer.
If you find someone cursing china or any other country, they are actually talking about the government.
People everywhere are same though their culture differs , still they too are humans only. Every place has good and bad people . If you find friendly people somewhere you are also likely to encounter arrogant ones.
But at the global plenary, the face of a country is based on its government and the policies.
We don't like that China unlawfully claims Arunachal Pradesh - It was transferred to British India by Tibet (when Tibet was Independent) but China didn't recognize it . This issue has to be solved by both the governments. There are only a few reason when we dislike China and that includes the border dispute. Apart from this I don't think anything else we have to dislike.
Kim Bond, Knows a lot about India
Honestly, it appears to be no, especially among Nationalistic Indians. I just answered a question like this, so I’ll summarize. The Indian media portrays China to be greedy and perpetually in an effort to steal land and colonize other countries.
Finally, India is mostly Hindu and they along with the Sikhs and Jains are mostly vegetarian. China is known to consume many animals which are exotic to most of the world, for example, cats, rats, and dogs. This is considered highly disgusting and even offensive to many Indians , some of who (see today’s news) may even kill people for ”transporting” animals.
Ironically enough, Northeast Indians, who look just like the Chinese and share similar cultural influences with them (especially with the cuisine), tend to be discriminated against by other Indians.
