China is going to introduce new security related law in Hong Kong, under which the right to sedition and protest will be taken away.

But it is believed that this law will be opposed at the international level, by Hong kong. Last year, supporters of democracy protested in Hong kong for months.

The session of the Parliament of China is going to begin on Friday. This is going to be debated in the session. This session is starting late because of Corona.

There was an imperative to make a law on this in the constitution of Hong kong, but this could not happen due to widespread opposition.

When Britain handed over the autonomy of Hong Kong to China in 1997, some alleged laws were made under which some kind of freedom was given in Hong Kong which people in China do not have.

On Thursday, the Hong kong dollar price has fallen due to the announcement of the proposal for this new law. This preamble will be brought in the name of improving the law system and enforcement system of Hong kong.

A spokesman for the government, Zhang Sui, said that China is planning to bring an amendment in the policy of ‘one country, two systems’.

Zhang Sui said, “National security is the basis of the country’s stability. Keeping the national security safeguards the fundamental interests of the people of China. This includes our fellow compatriots from Hong Kong.”

China has always had the authority to implement the National Security Act in the original law of Hong kong, but has been abstaining from doing so.

Elections are due in China in September. The way the pro-democracy parties have succeeded last year, the same way, if the elections are successful this time, then the government may have trouble in bringing the bill.

It is certain that there will be protests in Hong Kong and elsewhere on the proposal of this new law.

The pro-democracy activists believe that China is violating Hong kong’ freedom.

Last year, lakhs of people came out on the streets of Hong kong and opposed the extradition bill. Later the preamble of this law was withdrawn.
