China is one of those countries where there’s less room for freedom of speech.
Although China poses itself as an all-in-all democratic country, it doesn’t approve of views contrary to the primary ideology of the country.
Dissenting and speaking against the government might be a piece of cake in many other countries of the world but in China, it is quite nightmarish. The Chinese government doesn’t appreciate its people thinking atypically.
It’s no new thing that China had been accused of lying to the whole world about a pandemic going rampant in their country.
It turns out that their claim of overcoming Coronavirus in 2 months was also a blatant lie.Their government conjured up some stuff to dupe the world into believing that they have finally won the battle against COVID-19.
They so wanted to conceal the information regarding the number of fatalities, and those who didn’t comply with this wish of their government, they have been made to pay a heavy price.
A 40 year old businessman, Fang Bin, was recently caught by a couple of cops initially disguised as healthcare workers. Mr. Bin was made to go through this trial solely because he posted a video on the internet revealing an increasing number of deaths in China.
Somehow, they spilled the beans that they are policemen and not healthcare workers. Mr. Bin asked them to show an arrest warrant which they didn’t have. In response to his questions, they shoved him and rushed him to their van standing nearby.
Fang Bin wasn’t the only one to go through this dreadful experience. Two other people were forcibly disappeared by the Chinese authorities. All of them were alleged of the same crime – speaking out against the deceit of Chinese government.
Fang was sent back home after a couple of days, and he appeared to be safe and sound albeit he was warned to steer clear of spreading misinformation in future. He might have agreed to comply with their conditions that’s why he returned safe.
