China's Communist Party sparks outrage after it mocks rival India's COVID-19 ...

A social media account operated by the Chinese Communist Party mocked the humanitarian catastrophe brought on by the surge in the number of COVID-19 cases gripping its neighbor and rival, India.

The account, which is run by the official Chinese law enforcement agency, the Communist Party’s Central Political and Legal Affairs commission, posted the controversial message on Weibo, which is China’s version of Twitter.

The post included two images juxtaposed with one another. One photo shows an image of a rocket launch in China while the other shows dead bodies being cremated in India.

‘Lighting a fire in China VS lighting a fire in India,’ the post read.

The image ignited a backlash among Chinese internet users who slammed it for insensitivity.

Responders on Weibo commented that the post was ‘inappropriate’ and that China ‘should express sympathy for India,’ according to the BBC.

Hu Xijin, the editor-in-chief of China’s Global Times, wrote: ‘Hold high the banner of humanitarianism at this time, show sympathy for India, and firmly place Chinese society on a moral high ground.’

The launch begins the first of 11 missions necessary to complete, supply and crew the station by the end of next year.

China’s space program has also recently brought back the first new lunar samples in more than 40 years and expects to land a probe and rover on the surface of Mars later next month.

Meanwhile, the situation in India remains grim.

With Indian hospitals struggling to secure a steady supply of oxygen, and more COVID-19 patients dying amid the shortages, a court in New Delhi said it would start punishing government officials for failing to deliver the life-saving items.
