India on Monday banned 59 apps with Chinese links, including the popular TikTok and UC Browser, saying they were detrimental to the country’s sovereignty, integrity and security.
The ban, which comes in the context of the impasse along the real line of control in Ladakh, also applies to WeChat and Bigo Live.
The list of apps that have been banned includes Helo, Likee, CamScanner, Vigo Video, Mi Video Call – Xiaomi, Clash of Kings as well as the Club Factory and Shein e-commerce platforms.

Congressman Manish Tewari said, “Banning Chinese apps is a good idea. What about receiving money in PM CARES from Chinese telecom companies and others Chinese companies? Good or bad idea. “
“In China, everything is ultimately owned or at least controlled by CCP + PLA + Intel organizations. Together, they are called DEEP STATE SIRE,” he said in a tweet.
