India Bans 118 Chinese Apps including PUBG!


The good news, however, the heart-breaking one for many Indians, has been declared by the Indian government. 118 Chinese apps including PUBG are banned in India to re-iterate the recent act done by China. The government accused Chinese troops of provocative action again in the South Bank of Ladakh's Pangong Lake.

The similar attempt was made on August 31, but Indian soldiers thwart them both times. In June, 20 soldiers died for the country in a clash at Galwan Valley. China also suffered deaths, however, it hasn’t revealed the number. "This decision is a targeted move to ensure safety, security and sovereignty of Indian cyberspace," the Indian government said.

In PUBG, 100 players have to face off with automatic weapons until there is only one left. Tencent introduced a stripped-down mobile version, which helped the game to skyrocket, especially during the lockdown.

PUBG Mobile rank among top five smartphone games in the world with over 734 million downloads. According to reports, there are close to 50 million active PUBG players in India.

The ministry, explaining the latest move, said that it had received a lot of complaints regarding the misuse of some mobile apps on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and transmitting user data to servers outside India.

"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," said government.

The move has been welcomed by almost all Indians, though they miss their favourite PUBG! Earlier, in June, the government had banned 59 Chinese apps, including TikTok and UC Browser, saying that they were a threat to sovereignty, integrity and security of the country.
