China raises objections to India's ban on its apps

While China alleges that the ban is a violation of investors' rights, India says stealing and profiling of data from india through the apps is detrimental to the security of the country. The 59 apps India has banned included social networks like TikTok and web browser UC Browser.

NEW DELHI, June 30: Raising objections over India banning 59 Chinese apps, the Chinese Government said on Tuesday that India had the responsibility to uphold the "legitimate and legal rights" of international investors.

India had on Monday banned the apps for misusing them for activities "prejudicial to the sovereignty and integrity" of the country. The banned apps included TikTok and UC Browser. The Indian Government said these posed a serious threat to the defence of the country and public order. The ban follows the stand-off between the troops of the two countries at the LAC in Ladakh.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters in Beijing on Tuesday that China is seriously concerned about the notice issued by India. He said, "We are checking and verifying the situation."

The Indian Information Technology Ministry had said on Monday that it was blocking the 59 apps because they are being used against the interests of the country. The ban was imposed to ensure the sovereignty and security of the Indian cyberspace, a Ministry statement said.

The Ministry has issued necessary orders to Google and Apple to take down these apps from their stores. The internet providers and other telecom companies will also be asked to block them.

There have been complaints that some mobile apps were stealing data for use abroad. The mining and profiling of the data is harmful for the country. There have been evidence that TikTok was snooping on users and was once banned.

"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. At the same time, there have been raging concerns on aspects relating to data security and safeguarding the privacy of 130 crore Indians," a statement from the Ministry of Electronics and Information and Technology said.

The action followed a demand from traders and civil society to boycott Chinese products and services after the June 15 clashes.

The banned apps include a wide spectrum of applications such as chat apps, game apps and utility apps: Shein is an online apparel retailer, ShareIt and ES File Explorer are used to manage files, Helo and Likee are social networks like TikTok, Newsdog is a news aggregator, Alibaba's UC Browser is an internet browser, internet search firm Baidu's Baidu Map and Baidu Translate, gaming firm Tencent's WeChat and Clash of Kings.
