Google, Apple ban TikTok video app in India after court’s directive

In a move widely seen as a response to the recent Chinese aggression on the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the Indian government banned 59 apps originating from China, saying their activities were prejudicial to India’s sovereignty and integrity. Apart from the military counter build-up on the LAC, the action against the apps is seen as use of leverage that can significantly impact revenues of Chinese firms. The Indian government had said it has received complaints about “stealing and surreptitiously transmitting user data” to servers outside India.

The Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said he was checking and verifying the situation. Zhao also claimed the pattern of “win-win” practical cooperation between the two countries had been “artificially undermined” and it was not in India’s interest.

In a more elaborate response, the Chinese embassy in New Delhi opposed India’s action. The official also claimed what he said  India’s move was against the general trend of international trade and e-commerce, and was not conducive to consumer interests and market competition in India. China said it wanted India to acknowledge the “mutually beneficial nature” of China-India economic and trade cooperation.

The embassy urged the Indian side to change its practices, thus maintaining the momentum of China-India economic and trade cooperation, treat all investments and service providers equally, and create an “open, fair and just business environment, while bearing in mind the fundamental interests of both sides and the overall interests of bilateral relations”.

With the People’s Liberation Army is still holding forward positions on Pangong Tso and Gogra-Hot Springs area of Ladakh




With the People’s Liberation Army  is still holding forward positions on Pangong Tso and Gogra-Hot Springs area of Ladakh and showing no signs of a promised de-escalation, the Narendra Modi government is contemplating further action against China on economic front to drive home the message that India means business.

According to senior government officials familiar with the matter, the apex China Study Group (CSG) met on Monday to discuss the PLA action on the ground in Ladakh and its military posture in occupied Aksai Chin region of Tibet. The CSG, which has India’s senior most ministers, military leaders and bureaucrat as members, is the body that recommends the country’s course on action with China.

While China wants India to normalize diplomatic relations on an as-is-where-is basis, the Modi government firmly believes that anything short of status quo ante in Ladakh sector is unacceptable with a cost attached to it. Despite being the aggressor, the PLA believes that its troops are well within it own perception of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh. Thus, it is holding on to the positions at both Gogra-Hot Springs as well as the green top of finger four feature of Pangong Tso lake while making unacceptable demands on Indian Army posts.

The two decided that both sides fully disengage and then de-escalate but a month later, the situation has reached a stalemate with the Chinese offering a diplomatic face-saver to India without any corresponding withdrawal on the ground.


Now that the US has taken action against Huawei and its supporting entities for spying, it is quite evident that India will also keep the Chinese communication and power companies out of any future projects. The Modi government is clear that the bilateral ties are directly linked with the border peace and will not allow them on a parallel track as in the past.
