The Indian actress Celina Jaitley has come up with an apt reply to a Chinese journalist who tried to make fun of India’s productivity by saying even if China wants to boycott the Indian goods; it’s hard to do that because there are not many Indian goods in the Chinese market.
After the conflict between the Indian and the Chinese shoulders in the Galwan valley which resulted in 20 Indian soldiers being martyred and a number of casualties being inflicted on the Chinese side as well, the Indian government banned 59 Chinese apps in order to protect the privacy of the Indian people.
The decision of the Indian government has not gone down well with the Chinese government and the Chinese media at all and there have been lot of statements being passed in the last few days which suggest the restlessness of the Chinese.
Recently, a Chinese journalist named Hu Xijin put out a tweet saying that his Indian “friends” need to have some things which are more important than “nationalism”.
Well, even if Chinese people want to boycott Indian products, they can't really find many Indian goods. Indian friends, you need to have some things that are more important than nationalism. pic.twitter.com/6zauhqYbXH

Celina Jaitley, who is a constant presence on social media these days, didn’t waste too much of time in quoting Xijin’s tweet.
Celina wrote in his tweet that Xijin needs to understand that friends don’t kill each other and the word that he should use is “patriotism” because Indian people are ready to die for their country.
Celina then quoted the same tweet for the second time as well and reminded Xijin that BUDDHISM, a religion which has shaped the culture of China for many, many years, has come from India only.
Sir, did you just call us “friend”? PS Friends don’t KILL friends! The word is PATRIOTISM & the difference is we are ready to die for our country & you would rather kill. We chose globalisation YOU chose war & now each of our martyred men will cost you billions. Anyways PEACE !! https://t.co/97iSv1KSAw

Part 2: One more thing Sir, please note this will cause you a tedious ‘boycott dilemma’.May I remind you that you are forgetting one very important Indian product/export, something that shaped YOUR culture for centuries..Its called BUDDHISM.( Now you may take a moment to ponder) https://t.co/97iSv1KSAw

Xijin hasn’t responded to Celina’s quote-tweets yet.
Celina is someone who belongs to a family of armymen. While his dad VK Jaitley was a war veteran, his brother is also serving the Indian army currently.
