We all are well aware of the fact that the Indian government has banned 59 Chinese apps in our country. Although this app ban was brought into force once as well but did not work out this good this time, as you all can see, these 59 apps stopped working overnight.
Recently the Chinese army attacked out Indian soldiers and some of them were martyred. The sad part is that no one cries over the Martyrs but the Chinese apps which were collecting our user data and feeding it to their government. Under what circumstances do we let this continue? As soon as the government realised this, it banned 59 most used Chinese apps by us Indians.
Not only did these apps steal our user data, but also earned from these apps and it only strengthened their country’s economy.
One small step by the Indian government could mean a lot to the family of our Martyr soldiers. It’s our time to learn and cooperate with the government in this decision.
It’s sad to realise that 50 to 70 per cent of our Indian population was dependent on these Chinese applications which is why we are having a hard time coping up with the ban.

Last but not least. One application got banned under the Communication Category titled Mi Video Call which is mainly for Xiaomi phones. To get over this, try using Google Duo. It’s easy and simple. Also, Google Duo is not limited to Xiaomi users. Anyone can use it.
These were all the 59 applications that the Indian government banned recently. We hope you help the country with this great decision. Without the help of citizens, no decisions can work. Banning Chinese apps is the first step to Boycott China. Let’s get this working together.
