China hopes India will reconsider actions against Chinese companies

China hopes India will reconsider actions against Chinese companies

The move followed a confrontation between India and China at a disputed Himalayan border site, which left 20 Indian soldiers dead. She wrote in tweeting that India banned 59 Chinese apps, glad to know that.

India's 1.3 billion population is considered as a key market for digital players around the world.

The government order didn't name China, or cite the border clashes.

These apps are "prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order", a government order said. However, it is yet to be seen what will happen to 2000 employees hired by the company in India.

TikTok "continues to comply with all data privacy and security requirements under Indian law and has not shared any information of our users in India with any foreign government, including the Chinese government", the company's India chief, Nikhil Gandhi, said in a statement.

Tiktok is seeking to challenge the Indian government decision in court and has been preparing to submit clarifications to the government stakeholders on the matter.

India had been the top global market for TikTok, the blockbuster Chinese app popular with young people that lets users upload and share short videos. "I do not intend to appear in this one", Singhvi said. The video had been liked 218,000 times, as the app still functions on phones on which it is already downloaded. Bytedance bought Musical.ly for $800 million and put it out as Tiktok which became its flagship app just within few months of its launch in India. Pompeo had said that this decision of India is welcome because these apps are a big threat in terms of security. This was revealed by China's news reporter, Caixinglobal.com. Tencent's messaging platform WeChat and five of its other apps were also banned.

Two games of China-based firms, "Mobile Legends" and "Clash of Kings", were among those banned on Monday.

The ministry said it had chose to block 59 apps in view of the emergent nature of threats. China has not disclosed how many casualties its troops suffered.
