The report which was released by the Law and Society Alliance has stated that Chinese influence poses a serious threat to India’s security and democracy. China lavishly spent huge sums of money to buy influence in India’s film world, universities, social institutions, research think-tanks, social media, and the tech industry. This is the finding of a 76-page Study Report titled ‘Mapping Chinese Footprints and Influence Operation in India’. One of the examples highlighted by the Law and Society report is how the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) has refrained from criticising or rebuking China. The Law and Society Alliance report contains many more such examples of Beijing subtly trying to influence the Indian population using social media and mobile applications, including video tools.
