Did Indo -Chinese relationship played a role in the ban?
As we all know the relationship between China and India is at the verge of breaking. China’s continuous interference with our borders and our internal matter has left India very angry and on top of that China is also accounted responsible for the COVID-19 outbreak . This has resulted in a movement called “Ban the Chinese products” all around the world.
Why it was banned in the first place?
As India banned tic-toc( an emerging billion dollar chinese social media platform) on july 13 ,this made the relation ship between India and China crystal clear and it was made clear that India would go for other chinese products as well. On 2nd september 2020 India banned Pubg and its lite version , and also 116 other apps for security and privacy reasons. These reasons are not disclosed by the Indian government yet.
