As per the Municipal Act, The judges appealed to the public to resolve their disputes through the Lok Adalats as these provide relatively quick and economical justice. However,peaceful development?the essence of Chinas reassurance remained the same: there is no need to get alarmed about our power; we will behave differently from other great powers in history Of coursedespite Beijings repeated pledges of peaceful intentionsthe rest of the world has kept its scepticism For one thingthe historical record of conflicts between incumbent great powers and rising powers has provided no cause for complacency One may find various reasons to suggest that conflict between China and the US-led West is avoidable But there are equally plausible reasons why such a conflict may be quite likely In additionthe international community may initially give Beijing the benefit of the doubt Indeedthe utterance of peaceful rise by top Chinese leadersincluding President Hu Jintaowas applauded in the United States and Asia HoweverChinese deedsnot wordswould be the most convincing evidence that a resurgent Middle Kingdom will pose no threat to its neighbourslet alone directly challenge American hegemony UnfortunatelyChinese foreign policy behaviour in the last decade has failed to put to rest the fears of its neighbours and the international community While on the whole Beijing has followed a pragmatic diplomatic strategy and refrained from directly challenging the status quothe Chinese government has also engaged in many acts that are deeply disturbing Topping the list is its military modernisation As its economy growsChina has more resources to upgrade its military hardware and acquire new capabilitiessuch as quieter submarinesmore advanced jetfightersand smarter missiles In the eyes of the Chinesethere is nothing wrong with thisespecially considering the relative technological backwardness of the Chinese military Howeversuch a move inevitably disrupts the fragile balance of power in Asia: a militarily more capable China simply means a relative decline in the military capability of its neighbours and the regions security guarantorthe US The response to this classic security dilemma (one countrys pursuit of security makes other countries less secure) is predictable other Asian countries have also increased their military spending and the US has rebalanced its military deployment to address the rising Chinese military might (popularly known as the pivot to Asia) Sadlyin Beijingthese counter-moves are seen in a very different light Instead of interpreting them as a natural response to Chinas powermost Chinese policy-makers and strategic thinkers view them as part of a US-led ploy to constrain China and frustrate its legitimate aspirations of becoming Asias pre-eminent power As a resultstrategic distrust grows along with the potential for a more adversarial strategic rivalry between China and the US If one is looking for the latest evidenceall one needs to do is read recent newspaper headlines on American plans to deploy anti-missile systems in Asia and Chinas advance in its missile programmes This military modernisation alone probably would have caused less alarm had China successfully resolved its territorial disputes with its most important neighbourssuch as JapanIndiaand Vietnam But that is not the case To make things worsein the last few yearsBeijing has demonstrated a new firmness in asserting its maritime claimsspecifically in the South China Sea and the East China Sea In the South China SeaChinese claims have contributed to unprecedented tensions with Vietnam and the Philippinesand undone the image of a benevolent great power carefully crafted by China since the late 1990s The clash with Japan over the Senkaku Islandsor Diaoyu in Chinesehas escalated as well Two years agothe detention of the captain of a Chinese fishing trawler in the waters near the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands led to a serious rupture in Sino-Japanese relations because Beijing used disproportional retaliationincluding the suspension of exports of rare-earth materials to Japanto force Tokyo to release the detained fisherman This yearthe Beijing-Tokyo ties have further deteriorated because of a series of diplomatic confrontations over the same islands Constrained by domestic political factors (leadership transition in China and a weak government facing a snap election in Japan)neither side has shown willingness to back down Without assigning blame for the latest diplomatic fights and geopolitical tensions between Chinathe USand Chinas neighbourswe can probably agree on one thing: Beijings peaceful rise or peaceful development slogan has lost its appealif not credibility After a decade of waiting for Beijing to match its words with deedscountries that have the biggest stake in Chinas peaceful rise are growing morenot lessconcerned Assuaging the anxieties of its neighbours and regaining their trust should be among the top priorities of Chinas new leadership There are several things they can do right away: FirstBeijing needs to change its strategy for handling territorial disputes Instead of vigorously asserting its claimsit must pledge to adhere to applicable international laws For examplein the South China Sea disputeits refusal to resolve the disputes through multilateral means and in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea has severely undermined its standing and credibility A complete reversal here should help Beijing repair its relations with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and avoid a potential conflict with the other claimantsparticularly Vietnam SecondChina may have a legitimate reason to strengthen its military powerbut it has to accompany its military modernisation with complementary measures of confidence-building and transparency Genuinely reciprocal and substantive exchanges with the militaries of the countries most concerned with Chinas defence modernisationsuch as the USJapan and Indiawill help reducethough not eliminatedistrust Establishing rules that will avoid accidents is another critical measure Imposing tight restrictions on military deployment and exercise can also send a reassuring message Lastand most importantlyChinas new leaders will need to learn to see Chinas rise not from Beijings perspectivebut from that of the international communityparticularly its neighbours Such a change of perspectiverather than another marketing slogancould go a long way towards calming their fears The

signals against the the surveillance programme to the US government Related News Following the FBI demand that Apple build backdoors to enable it to open iPhones and access encrypted data of users CEO Tim Cook’s message to Apple’s customers around the world on February 16 2016 argues that such backdoors can fall in the hands of the very criminals that the government is trying to protect people from even as it is prone to being misused by the government itself This is not new Similar comments have been made since the Edward Snowden incident — which brought to light that the US National Security Agency (NSA) had worked with vendors to weaken encryption and that it could break encryption Then came the iPhone with stronger encryption Even Apple can’t access the “keys” to unlock an encrypted phone — only the user controls them The San Bernardino case in which 14 innocent people were killed by an Islamic terrorist couple has validated the Apple claim because the encrypted data on their iPhones could not be accessed by the FBI Apple could not help either Hence the demand for building an operating system that allows backdoors to circumvent security under an archaic law is a dangerous precedent according to Cook “Rather than asking for legislative action through Congress the FBI is proposing an unprecedented use of the All Writs Act of 1789 to justify an expansion of its authority” This has reignited the debate on data privacy versus national security which had moved away from the mainstream media after occupying centrestage for over a year immediately after Snowden’s revelations surfaced in May 2013 Trust in American companies the innovators of almost all the technology — hardware devices applications; platforms for commerce social media search among others — fell
