What could possibly be happening here? Strange isn't it? Or maybe not! We are coming straight from India here and the one of the hottest news for you is the ban of some Chinese apps in India.

Indian Government Bans TikTok And 58 Other Popular Chinese Apps. An act which is considered a ‘Digital Air Strike’ Against China. And if you are curious as to what the motives were for this ban, then according to the Indian government, these apps were engaging in activities that put India’s security at risk.

, the Indian government announced the bans on Monday evening.

And as we've said earlier, the India government says the apps engaged in activities that endangered the “national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India.”

We are wondering how the many Indian users of TikTok will take this ban. TikTok is one of the most popular social media apps used in India with over 500 Million users.

This ban will for sure be a big blow for those who have been using these Chinese apps for business in India.

And according to

, tensions between China and India have been sharply rising since deadly clashes that took place at the border in recent weeks, with information pointing that the Chinese Government ordered a strike against India.

This probably has let to the Indian government to consider China a threat to their security, thus a ban of these Chinese made apps is one of the many ways of getting back at them.

We keep wondering how China is going to take all these. The tech war with the US and now India.

What remains unclear for now is how the India government will carry out the ban. Will the ask the local ISPs to comply with the ban by disabling access to these apps? We will surely keep you updated on any new developments concerning this subject.​
