Hong Kong passes law against desecration of Chinese national anthem

Hong Kong's parliament has passed a controversial law on China's national anthem that would make it an offense to desecrate or ridicule the anthem.

According to Reuters, the law was approved at a time when the Chinese parliament had unanimously approved the direct implementation of national security legislation in Hong Kong.
To deal with the insurgency, terrorism, and foreign intervention.

It should be noted that the United States, Britain, Australia, and Canada had opposed China regarding national security legislation.

The national anthem bill stipulates that primary and secondary school students in Hong Kong will be taught the national anthem "March of the Volunteers" and will be reminded of historical events and etiquette.

Criticism of the United States and Britain has angered China, with critics saying the law would end the limited independence of semi-autonomous Hong Kong.

According to the national anthem law, anyone found guilty of desecrating China's national anthem could face up to three years in prison and a کا 6,450 fine.

According to the report, Hong Kong's parliament was disrupted when two pro-democracy lawmakers protested against the proposed amendments to the proposed bill and walked out.

Lawmakers Eddie Chu and Ray Chen arrived in front of the chamber and threw foul-smelling material, which was immediately seized by bodyguards.

Eddie Choo later said, "A murderous state stinks forever. What we did today is to remind the world."
That 31 years ago, the Chinese Communist Party should never be forgiven for killing its own people.

It may be recalled that the city was handed over to China by the United Kingdom in 1991 and since then China has ruled here under the framework of 'one country, two systems'.

The Chinese government had introduced the law in the National People's Congress, which a parliamentary spokesman said would strengthen the "implementation of mechanisms" in the so-called financial stronghold.

The day before the law was passed, the United States had abolished Hong Kong's special status under its own laws
That would pave the way for the city to end trade concessions, as the United States has accused China of ending its sovereignty over the region.

In this regard, when the United States and Britain criticized China, China warned Britain that it would have to face an appropriate response if it intervened in Hong Kong.

The United Kingdom has hinted at granting citizenship to Hong Kong citizens in response to China's enforcement of national security law in Hong Kong.

On the other hand, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson has said that he will not leave the people of Hong Kong alone, disturbed by Beijing's control over the International Business Center in London.

Violent anti-China protests are also taking place in Hong Kong.

Police in Hong Kong has arrested at least 300 people in recent days during protests and clashes against China's controversial national security law.
