New Delhi: Government of India has banned a total of 59 Chinese apps, including Til-Tok, in the country on Monday. Tik-Tok is the most discussed among them because it had crores of consumers in India. Not only this, but 30 per cent user database of Tik-Tok was also in India only. Syed Akbaruddin, a former spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs and India's representative in the United Nations (UN) at present, tweeted on Tuesday.
Syed Akbaruddin wrote that "Oh! How the mighty have fallen, in less than 24 hrs... From near the top to near 200 to no ranking at all." As soon as the Indian government banned these apps on Monday night, shortly after that the app was deleted from Google Play Store and Apple's Play Store. That is, no new consumer will be able to download them. Apart from this, a large number of people deleted these apps themselves.
This is the reason why popular apps have received a major setback. China's foreign ministry has also expressed concern over this ban. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said that China is very concerned about this whole issue and is reviewing the whole matter. Since the incident in Ladakh, tensions in both countries have been deepening. Meanwhile, the Indian government has banned these apps in India citing security reasons. Their heads have been given 48 hours, who will have to appear before the committee.
