China Refuses To Stamp Indian Passports From Occupied Kashmir

October 1, 2009

Regards Occupied Kashmir As Disputed Territory

In a show of support to the Pakistani stance on Occupied Kashmir, China has started issuing separate visas for Kashmiri citizens holding Indian passports. These visas are not stamped on the Indian passport, and instead are hand-written on loose sheets of paper stapled to the passport. China has given no explanation for its move, but many in Srinagar say it is because Beijing sees Kashmir as disputed territory.

‘So far only about 100 people have been affected by the new procedures. The move – introduced in May – follows recent reports in the Indian media that Chinese troops have made incursions into the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir in the Ladakh region. The new requirements may affect only a handful of students and businessmen who travel from Indian-administered Kashmir to China, but the diplomatic implications of the Chinese move could result in a serious deterioration of relations between Beijing and Delhi.

The move is seen in India as an attempt to question the status of Jammu and Kashmir, which is claimed by Pakistan, considered an all-weather ally of China. The Chinese embassy has been issuing ‘stapled visas’ to Indian passport holders from the northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh, over which Beijing claims sovereignty.

“The visas are valid,” said a spokesperson of the Chinese embassy. She refused to answer any other questions.

  2. Indian govt. had tried it’s best to downplay but seems China as expected, succeeded in pushing India to the wall.

    One more factor which had helped USA, not China is that now India is purchasing billion of dollar worth arms from US. This is bit a puzzle that how name of China successfully used to make Obama happy as he is already running short of dollars.

    Indian army Gen. had said again and again that they are no match for China. So, in this scene if China is playing any tantrum, I do no think this is any bolt from blue.

    Moreover- Kashmir does stands as disputed area- no one wants to solve it. Indian and Pakistani politicians have made golden chapatis out of Kashmir..because from day one, this was a golden goose.

    Who is helping whom- only time will tell.

    • So true, It is exactly what is happening. Mumbai drama was just a staged performance to show how inadequate the Indian security is and the threat that India faces. Pakistan slayers in Govt played along the sweet tune of their ally country to help them secure defense contract worth billions of dollars with India. It was no surprise when all of a sudden Indian Armed forces started claiming that their Army, Navy, Air force were not well equipped and the declared deterrence is not much of any use but just talk mostly. People in India should understand the nature of American & Iraeli friendship… There will be more staged Terror drama in the coming times. And Indian masses & patriots will be paying the bills for this new friendship…

  3. Pakistan must focus on pakistani poverty, education and agriculture. Instead of development they r busy in anti india mission which leads to hum to dube sanam , apko leke dubenge. China is using pakistan against India. But india is a nuclear power , no one should undre estimate India.

    Jai Hind.

    • ‘Should’ always create problems- you can not , should not use this word even with GF or wife.

      Where PAK should see, is PAK issue, India also have many serious things to see..like NAXALS, CRIMINALS IN PARLIAMENT,MNS, BAJRANG DAL and many such things.
      China is no doubt using PAK but PAK had not made it a secret, remember what they said few months back- CHINA HAS BLANK CHEQUE- this is clear but what USA is doing ?

      Everyone is a nuclear power here and everyone is capable to do something. This is now group formation- who is with whom !
