As EurAsian Times reported, earlier the Indian government also banned a total of 59 Chinese apps which include giants names like TicTok, ShareIt, UC Browser, Likee, WeChat, and Bigo Live. 

The Indian ministry called the Chinese-owned applications as “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, the security of the state and public order.” The Indian Cyber Crime Coordinate Centre under the Ministry of Home Affairs sent an exhaustive recommendation for blocking these “malicious apps”. 

The ministry said that it has “received many complaints from various sources including several reports about the misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside India.”

“The compilation of these data, its mining and profiling by elements hostile to national security and defence of India, which ultimately impinges upon the sovereignty and integrity of India, is a matter of very deep and immediate concern which requires emergency measures,” it continued.

Sha Jun, the executive partner at the India Investment Services Center of the Yingke Law Firm called New Delhi’s action was “too childish and emotional” and “it marks a very bad signal for further Chinese investment in India.”
