I don't see it that way. India may not be putting Muslims in re-education camps but there's a long history of violence against Muslims in India. For example the 2002 Gujarat incident when Hindu extremists led to hundreds if not thousands of Muslims being killed depending on which estimate you take as accurate. Young Muslim girls were sexually assaulted, burned, raped and hacked to death. The ruling Indian government at the time did nothing to stop this or even condemn the action being taken and even condoned the rapes. Many believe this attack along with many others was a part of a state sponsored program to persecute the Muslim population.They'd jump on with the Indians against the Chinese I reckon. For all the issues they have India isn't putting Muslims into 're-education camps'.
But let's hope it doesn't come to that. Normally I'd say no way.....but China has been doing mad things lately.
That along with the history of conflict between India and Pakistan and China's aid to Pakistan in the form of building infrastructure and helping them develop nuclear weapons, I'd think Pakistan more likely siding with China. Not every country sees China like the west does as there isn't the history of conflict or political differences, it's easy to forget that as we tend to look at the world from only our own perspective.
