Well technically that’s not true... I think Indians always forget that provocation isn’t just physical, considering all the provocation India has made throughout the last 5 years (but India always forget their own action and consider whatever actions as righteous, learning from America no doubt), also it was Indian unilateral action of changing the status quo first, by changing disputed territory into your own by simple declaration.well u started provocation first by occupying our territory and attacking our patrol party.
That’s what India does with its other neighbours simply declare and others have to accept. Diplomatic protest from China didn’t work, so physical action was the next step. The only difference with India’s other neighbours is China was willing to force the issue. There is really no right or wrong in these issues... it’s a matter of perceptive, interests and what countries are willing to do or how far they are willing to go.
