India, world's largest democracy welcomes Communist ruler of #China, President #Xi Jinping

Lest we forget:-
It was June 4, 1989... A protest unlike anything Communist China had ever seen. Night after night, for six weeks in the spring of 1989, thousands upon thousands of students and residents poured into Beijing's Tiananmen Square to demonstrate for democracy. It all came to a violent end in the early morning of June 4, when troops moved in with a show of force to break up the protest...Twenty-five years after the bloody military crackdown on the Tiananmen Square pro-democracy protests, China is seeking to quell all discussion of the massacre by locking up, charging or harassing artists, scholars, lawyers, bloggers and relatives of victims.Wu Guofeng, a 20-year-old student, was among the first to die while attempting to document the Tiananmen Square protests
