I hear some people saying that Sun is considered as the father of china as he was the 1 who started a republic..whereas some people say that Mao is regarded as the father of china while Sun is the father of taiwan..
So which is true?
Technically, i'd say Qin Shi Huang is the father of China.
As for MODERN China, i'd say Sun Yat-sen, and i think i'd already explained why i think so in a previous Topic.
If it wasn't for Zhongshan, the Kuomingtang wouldn't exist, therefore the KMT respect him.
If it wasn't for Zhongshan, Mao never would have gotten an education, therefore Mao respected him.
If it wasn't for Zhongshan and Mao, Deng Xiaoping would have never ruled China, therefore the CCP respect him.
If it wasn't for Zhongshan, Mao and Deng Xiaoping, China would never be the Powerhouse it is today.
so in the end, the True answer is Sun Yat-sen.
