As we all are aware of India and China conflict that took place in the Ladakh region in June. Clash took place at the border where 20 Indian soldiers were martyred by the Chinese army. And due to this, the Indian government took a serious step to ensure the safety of the citizens. They recently banned a total of 59 Chinese apps across the nation, including TikTok, WeChat, UC Browser, and many more.
According to the resources, most of these apps are a danger to the security and integrity of the country.
Even the Ministry of Information and Technology of India also stated that these Chinese apps are transmitting the users’ data and personal information in a much-unauthorized manner. It is a matter of concern regarding the national security, and Indian defense system, and further, it requires an immediate step to prevent getting the data out of the country through these apps.
We all know that TikTok is a famous entertainment platform that is being used by people worldwide. But you will be surprised to know there are around 120 million users on TikTok just from India only. It is one of the popular apps in the nation, but recently people accused TikTok of revealing and stealing their data. However, Tik Tok refused these accusations. Even some US Senators also called to have an investigation regarding this.
The banned list also includes many e-commerce apps including Shein and Club Factory. People who have been using these apps for a very long time will now have to find some other alternatives. This all happened due to the clash between both the armies. Even after all these incidents, Chinese are still not going back.
According to the satellite images, it is visible that they have built new structures around the Himalayan border. We all are hoping that the heat around the border gets cool down as soon as possible letting things come back to normal.
