New Delhi, Jn. China embroiled in a border dispute with India is well known for its aggression. This aggression of his is not only visible outside the country but also inside the country. Strict punishment is given in China for raising voice against the Communist Party. Recently, the news of the disappearance of tennis player Peng Shuai, who made sexual harassment allegations against a top Communist Party official in China, was in the news. Now the United Nations has expressed concern over the harassment of Chinese female journalist and former lawyer Zhang Zhan. In the case of Peng and Zhang, questions are once again being raised about the dictatorship of the Communist Party of China. The special thing is that these allegations are being made on the Communist Party of China when America and Western countries are questioning China regarding human rights violations in China and the origin of Corona.
Why was Zhang punished?
1- The United Nations has expressed this concern about Zhang, when the US is blaming China for the spread of Corona. The Biden administration is following its predecessor, the Trump administration, in this matter. The US has repeatedly accused the Chinese government of obstructing a fair investigation. In this case, Zhang’s case could be more serious. Let us tell you that Zhang is a journalist by profession. He was reporting in Wuhan city of China during the Corona epidemic. The Communist Party of China was unhappy with his report. When the Chinese government imprisoned Zhang, she went on a hunger strike in prison to protest injustice. Now his condition is very critical. Giving them fluids through the nose.
2- In February 2020, 38-year-old Zhang Zhan raised questions about the management of the epidemic in Wuhan. Zhang probably even made a video of it. On submission of the report, he was taken into custody in May 2020. Zhang was then sentenced to four years in prison for obstructing government business. Zhang wrote on Twitter that he might not be alive in the coming winter. International agencies have become active after his Twitter. Human rights organization Amnesty International on Thursday called on the Chinese government to immediately release Zhang. Amnesty’s campaigner Gwen Li said in a statement that Zhang’s detention was “a shameful attack on human rights”.
