After India, US likely to ban Chinese apps including TikTok
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said the United States is certainly looking at banning Chinese social media apps, including TikTok. India has banned 59 apps with Chinese links for engaging in activities prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, the security of the state and public order.
The ban came in the wake of the ongoing stand-off along the Line of Actual Control in eastern Ladakh with Chinese troops. Coming to know about India banning Chinese apps, prominent lawmakers have urged the Trump administration to do the same in the USA.
